Intelligent InSites, Inc., the leading provider of enterprise real-time location systems (RTLS) software helping hospitals improve operational performance and patient satisfaction while supporting multiple RFID and RTLS technologies, today announced that its InSites Connect™ RTLS mobility solution is now available in Apple’s App Store. This solution will enable healthcare providers to improve their workflow processes, positively impacting quality of care and increasing staff satisfaction.
InSites Connect for the iPhone, which is an integrated part of Intelligent InSites’ enterprise real-time location system (RTLS) software, enhances the use of real-time location information and other workflow-related messaging to improve staff efficiency at the point-of-care.
“Healthcare providers have an inherently mobile workforce that requires on-the-go access to information,” said Trevor Gruby, Chief Technology Officer at Intelligent InSites. “We are pleased to provide our healthcare customers new ways to improve and streamline their ability to deliver efficient and high-quality care.”
The InSites Connect app allows healthcare personnel to view instantly, on their iPhone, the location and status of medical equipment, as well as patients and staff, eliminating non-value-added time spent searching the facility for equipment or people.
Through InSites Connect, staff can also receive time-sensitive alerts, messages, and tasks. They can then easily acknowledge that they are handling the alert or task, or they can update a task status with a simple finger tap. The iPhone voice capabilities further enhance workflow, as voice messages can be attached and sent to the appropriate personnel with more detailed information.
In addition, InSites Connect is extremely helpful in facilitating group collaboration, allowing a staff member to quickly notify a designated group of staffers about a particular event or assignment. This capability saves time and eliminates potential gaps in the communication loop.
According to Mary Jagim, RN, BSN, CEN, FAEN, and Chief Nursing Officer at Intelligent InSites “With InSites Connect, care providers can now be more productive and responsive, leading to better outcomes. By enabling medical staff to spend more time with patients, healthcare organizations will see higher satisfaction levels among their patients and employees.”
InSites Connect can be used by existing Intelligent InSites acute and senior care customers by downloading the app from Apple's App Store (itunes.apple.com) and subscribing to the RTLS mobility service from Intelligent InSites. In addition, Intelligent InSites’ existing RTLS applications are also accessible on the Apple iPad, making it easier for users to access all aspects of the InSites solution while “on the go.”
By leveraging InSites Connect and other Intelligent InSites’ RTLS applications, such as asset management, patient flow, temperature monitoring, and business intelligence; hospitals are able to improve patient satisfaction, through better responsiveness of hospital staff and quietness of the hospital environment, as well as achieve meaningful and measurable hard-dollar cost savings attained by improved healthcare efficiency.
