Real-Time Locating Systems

Categories: ICT & Carts, RTLS


Every asset in a healthcare facility is a small link in a big chain. When one of the links goes missing it can cause a domino effect that impacts staff and patients.

Gain actionable insights from quantifiable data

To make the right decisions, you need data captured throughout your facility—as well as the insight to make positive changes. Real-Time Locating Systems (RTLS) healthcare solutions give you a performance edge by connecting your diverse data into the kind of actionable insights that lead to optimal care. Our solutions help you identify, track, locate and monitor the condition of every patient, staff and asset in your organisation, giving your healthcare facility business intelligence that helps deliver better outcomes for your patients—and your bottom line.


Improve Inventory Management – Ensure your staff has ready access to all of the critical supplies and assets they need, when they need them.

Lower Operational Costs – Our solution improves utilisation rates of existing equipment, reducing the unnecessary purchase of extra inventory.

Automate Clinical Inventory – Free staff to focus on patient care by automating inventory management. See real-time inventory data, monitor trends and order before supplies fall below critical levels.


Using Hardware to Capture Data

Sensors and tags are placed on critical medical assets and devices: workstations on wheels, medical tablets, patient blood bags, IV pumps, heart monitors, beds, wheelchairs and anything that influences patient outcomes. Discreet beacons and RFID readers automatically note the location of the asset or device as it moves – providing real-time visibility into every item.

Intelligent edge

Staff get instant asset locations using HPA’s cloud-based customer service portal, RightNow and in-depth reports are generated through Zebra’s Savanna software.  The two layers of access give staff visibility to all the critical supplies they need, freeing up more time to focus on patient care. Management can access utilisation reports, which will help to reduce unnecessary purchase of extra inventory, while also allowing them to easily monitor trends and order before supplies fall below critical levels.
