The Future of Personal Health has an article on Innovate Oncology Operations With RTLS Patient Flow Technology.
The article explains how 75% of cancer program management cited workflow inefficiencies as the most concerning bottleneck to patient care delivery. There are problems with patient flow that stresses care teams and ultimately jeopardises the safety of patients.
RTLS can be used to know and optimise how long patients have been waiting, their stage of care, who has seen them and who they need to see next. This reduces both patient and staff frustration. The article claims it is possible to increase increase capacity by 10% without adding physical space.
While mentioned in an oncology setting, this is just as applicable to other health settings where patients are waiting.
