HTS Demonstrates RTLS Locating and Authenticated Staff Presence Features at Leading Age PA 2016
HTS and it's Pennsylvania-based certified dealers demonstrated Nevatec's Real Time Location System (RTLS) capability at LeadingAge PA June 15-16 in Hershey. The RTLS module is part of Nevatec's unified, single-platform resident safety system for Senior Living. Attendees witnessed firsthand how Nevatec's e-call system with RTLS capability can (1) immediately locate residents and staff anywhere throughout your community, and (2) automatically track and authenticate staff presence.
Typically, e-call systems track only two points of an alarm event - call placed and call cancelled. The data-driven Nevatec platform can track additional points along the alarm event continuum. This includes the time the call was accepted and by which staff member, the time staff arrived to assist the resident, and the time staff actually departed the room. By documenting time spent with a resident, or staff presence, the Nevatec platform can provide documentation for instances where staff response time or the level of care are under review. Or, it could offer justification for modifying a resident's care plan if staff presence is more frequent or lengthy than expected.
Nevatec's next-generation, RFID/RTLS-based single-platform resident safety solution was designed specifically for healthcare's critical communications environment. Its modular applications include: Wireless emergency call (e-call); automatic fall detection; resident and staff locating and tracking; wander management; wireless nurse call; and a wrist transmitter tag which unifies e-call, fall detection, locating and wander control into a single device.
