Operating Rooms are one of the most underutilised resource in Hospitals.
Patients are asked to wear the device in the SAU. The session is started by simply scanning the device off a simple “matchbox”size reader taking no more than 5 seconds. From this point forward, using only yourWi-Fi your patients location is monitored inReal-time.
Capture the time thepatient arrives, anesthesia starts, anesthesia ends, and the time the patienttransitions into the operating room.
Capture the time it takes for every procedure. Record the time of knife to skin, closure, and the total time spent in theoperating room by the patient. This key information is correlated with specific data to identifytrends andKPI’s of the Operating Roomautonomously.
The patient is continuously monitored withRetrospective reporting taking place as the software generates reports of performance and time efficiencies.
The wearable device is removed and the information collected is coupled with ourpredictive algorithms. Hospital management recieveActionable information and not mere data. The net result isimproved patient flow scheduling and planning.
