Improve Workflows and Caregiver Satisfaction

  • Locate fellow team members and critical equipment at-a-glance
  • Caregivers simply walking in the room can:
    • Cancel Patient calls
    • Suppress bed exit alerts
    • Reset rounding reminders, and more

Improve Caregiver Safety

  • Alert the right response teams of an unsafe scenario at the push of a button on the Hillrom Precision Locating staff badge

Improve the Patient Experience

  • Locate the equipment patients need faster to speed response and recovery times
  • Robust reporting around compliance, time in room, response times, and more to inform decision that help optimize your care environment.

The Power of Precision with RTLS

Hillrom Precision Locating with RTLS provides multiple views of your staff and equipment to give you crucial location data quickly and easily—with accuracy within a meter.

HPL Locating Map

  • See staff and equipment move across your floors in near real-time.
  • See the list of currently located staff and equipment and filter to narrow the map view further.

HPL Grid View

  • See at glance in a full list view who and what is where.
  • Sort and filter by location, tag type, battery status, etc..

Integration with Voalte Nurse Call

  • See staff location data displayed on Voalte Nurse Call staff and patient room consoles and on status board

An Intuitively Simple Real-Time Location System

The accuracy and speed are impressive and unlike any other locating system we've used. The map feature is particularly useful in helping our caregivers know where other team members and equipment are on the floor.

Competitive Comparison

DIFFERENTIATING HILLROM PRECISION LOCATING

  Hillrom Precision Locating Other RTLS Technologies
Accuracy
  • 1-meter accuracy with standard room hardware requirements
  • X,Y positioning—see exact locations within a room
  • Accuracy is highly dependent on amount, complexity, and cost of room hardware
  • Most technologies are only threshold-crossing or area detection
  • Increasing speed and response times impacts battery life and overall cost of infrastructure
Locating Speed (latency)
  • Real-time updates (updating tag location every 750ms, 2-3 secs typical zone report time)
  • Increasing speed and response times impacts battery life and overall cost of infrastructure
Ease of System Management
  • Standardized room infrastructure to achieve high levels of accuracy
  • Room zones are configurable via a software edit
  • Room Infrastructure costs heavily dependent on level of accuracy needed and room shape, wall material, etc.
  • Reconfiguring zones almost always requires moving or adding physical room hardware.

LOWER LONG-TERM COSTS

  • Savings in the long run through longer tag battery life and wired room infrastructure
  • Calculations based on the needs of a 100-bed facility over a 10+ year period.
