100% FOCUS ON ENTERPRISE ACUTE CARE
Larger hospitals and healthcare networks are faced with an enormous management challenge to improve efficiencies and reduce costs while providing exceptional patient care. Vizzia’s innovative RTLS solutions help healthcare executives and clinicians to manage these growing challenges.
Tracking and management of medical equipment enables staff to find available assets, recover missing equipment, reduce dependency on rentals, and perform maintenance efficiently.
RTLS and IoT sensors can remotely monitor temperature, humidity and air quality to protect patients, critical medications, lab samples and blood banks to ensure optimal patient safety and care.
IoT-enabled solutions simplify navigation within healthcare facilities, helping patients and visitors find their way efficiently using interactive mapping to guide individuals to their desired destinations.
Hand Hygiene Compliance
Maintaining proper hand hygiene is crucial to reduce infection risks within healthcare facilities. Vizzia offers solutions capable of detecting staff members’ handwashing.
For staff workflow, RTLS can automate nurse call cancellation, rounding schedules, and help summon urgent assistance to support patient care. In emergency situations, duress systems provide vital rapid location tracking and alerting.
RTLS can optimize patient workflow management and enhance patient safety. Healthcare providers can monitor patient movement, prevent wandering, and enhance infant security within the facility
In the dynamic landscape of healthcare optimization, the company emerges as an indispensable ally, orchestrating a symphony of innovation and efficiency that resonates throughout the sector. The story of Piedmont Healthcare, which is intimately woven with RTLS technology from Vizzia, attests to the technology’s revolutionary power.
Its RTLS has transformed into the compass directing Piedmont’s operational journey with a remarkable blend of accuracy and practicality, guaranteeing that essential medical equipment remains flawlessly positioned to serve at the beckoning call of healthcare practitioners. This system enables a seamless orchestration of resources, from beds to defibrillators, improving patient care by bridging the gap between need and availability.
In the area of visionary strategy, the company acted as a catalyst for the establishment of a centralized distribution hub under Piedmont’s purview. This invention exemplifies a wise resource allocation strategy and was developed using insights from the organization’s advanced tracking system and software. The outcome was flawless. Equipment surpluses and shortages are gracefully balanced, leasing costs are wisely reduced, and the path of equipment acquisition is wise. The software’s mastery of temperature monitoring adds to the harmony of operational finesse, demonstrating the company’s adaptability. It protects the integrity of essential materials, such as drugs and blood, by relieving medical staff of the need to manually track temperature readings, acting as an ever-vigilant sentinel of protocol adherence and cleanliness standards.
The spotlight on the company’s technology is illuminated by the tangible achievements that emerge in Piedmont’s wake. A resounding chorus of success reverberates through a symphony of figures: multimillion-dollar savings, heightened productivity, and improved equipment utilization. This performance, crowned by a Technology Association of Georgia award, symbolizes its mastery in ushering transformative technology solutions to the forefront. As the curtain rises on the broader healthcare stage, the Piedmont-Vizzia saga stands as a timeless ode to the analytical prowess of real-time location systems—a saga that demonstrates how technology-driven evolution can redefine not only efficiency and savings, but also the very contours of patient care itself.
