Solutions across the entire health facility spectrum
Strong solutions for gentle care
A busy hospital is a place where tracking patients, doctors, nurses, expensive medical equipment, the right medication, sought-after resources, and even hospital beds is quite literally a matter of life and death. Beyond operational efficiency, new science confirms technologies that control the color of light can improve healing, reduce the risk of infection, and improve a patient's circadian rhythms.
Innovative Use Cases
Real-Time Location Services (RTLS) are used to automatically identify and track the location of objects or people within a building. While this technology isn’t new, it is now cheap for the first time—and the use cases are truly endless. For instance, during an average shift for a nurse, they spend one hour just looking for things. Imagine the impact of knowing the exact location of every medication, staff member, and piece of equipment in a hospital. These insights will radically transform how your business thinks and operates.
Clinical Workflow Improvement
Beyond having the right people in the right place at the right time, hospitals need to make their workflow as streamlined and efficient as possible. That’s where device connectivity and communication technology from Elevant can help. There’s the potential for a patient to know the location of members of their care team and, if they’re nearby, send an alert to them directly. Not only does this improve workflow efficiencies, it enables clinicians to better navigate the care process. In addition, data on exactly how long someone has been waiting in the ER, or how long it takes to turn over a room can be collected and leveraged into better outcomes for patients.
Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAIs)
People who visit hospitals are expecting care and treatment, not additional complications—yet approximately 1 in 25 patients contract healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) in U.S. hospitals, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Standard cleaning procedures usually involve manual application of detergents and disinfectants. Unfortunately, the efficacy of these manual cleaning procedures can vary considerably. In fact, less than 50% of patient room surfaces are properly cleaned. New studies in “no-touch” short-wavelength light have been shown to kill pathogens through a variety of pathways, depending upon the wavelength, the duration, and the amount.
Patient Satisfaction and HCAHPS
The Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) is a survey for measuring patients’ perceptions of their hospital experience. These scores have a direct impact on funding, and therefore, their ability to care for patients. New science confirms technologies that control the color of light can improve healing, reduce the risk of infection, and improve a patient’s circadian rhythms. The fact is, smart hospitals have better HCAHPS scores, better funding, and better outcomes for those who need it most.
Patient Safety and Tracking
When it comes to vulnerable populations, such as infants and the elderly, nurses must know exactly where they are at all times. Luckily, with patient tracking solutions from Elevant, this job is a little easier. Non-disruptive bluetooth tags can be gently clipped to a patient, automatically triggering an alarm if they wander off. It’s all about equipping medical professionals with the best tools to minimize risk and provide the highest quality of care.
