Cost-efficient, accurate solutions for hospital workflows
The partnership between Kontakt.io Inc., the industry leader in indoor location services and Bluetooth® Low Energy IoT devices, and Navv Systems Inc., the leading care traffic control platform for hospitals and healthcare systems, offers cost-efficient, accurate solutions for hospital workflows, including team dispatching, equipment and asset tracking, loss prevention, and patient wayfinding.
Deploying real time location system (RTLS) solutions to track and manage assets that scale to accommodate a hospital campus is a complex process that requires planning, tagging, troubleshooting, and maintenance for thousands of items. Older radio frequency identification (RFID) solutions require custom development, integration, manual calibration, and testing, and typically involve longer deployments, cost more, and deliver imprecise location information.
The Navv and Kontakt.io partnership offers location services that deliver:
- A comprehensive solution designed for healthcare, by healthcare
- A cost effective system
- Superior quality and technology
- Easy deployment and maintenance
- Superb digital maps, ready for patient and visitor wayfinding
- A user-friendly experience
- Strong support and service
- A scalable platform for any size building, campus, or enterprise
- Open integration with existing infrastructures
How the partnership’s location services work
Wheelchairs, IV pumps, and other equipment get tags that communicate via the existing WiFi infrastructure, eliminating the need for additional sensor deployment. The location and movement of items can be seen in near real-time on mobile devices, or on a web-based care “command-center” traffic control platform.
The Kontakt.io and Navv System advantage
Hospitals with NavvTrack and Kontakt.io see real-time location information for all tagged devices and equipment. Continued maintenance and total cost of ownership go down significantly compared against less accurate, more costly RFID options, while experienced implementation teams provide a turnkey solution on proven, scalable architecture.
