Real-Time Location Solution

What is a real-time location solution?

A real-time location solution (RTLS) is a technology that monitors the locations of many objects. People and organizations can choose which places they want to see and how often they want updates. Notably, users can also have the solution notify them when a tagged item reaches a certain point.  

Healthcare organizations can use RTLS to locate medical staff, supplies and equipment. By ensuring staff and equipment are in the correct place, hospitals can enhance the throughput of patients. 

Beyond healthcare, many industries use RTLS, including:  

  • Manufacturing 
  • Hospitality 
  • Government 
  • Retail  

Why are real-time location solutions important to healthcare?

Real-time location solutions are important to healthcare because they enhance productivity and workflow within healthcare organizations. For example, hospitals can track important equipment and PPE to ensure they have the resources to provide patient care. Importantly, RTLS can also help healthcare professionals find the people and supplies they need within large, complex facilities.
