Internet of Things (IoT) Location and Sensing Technologies to Increase Efficiency of Healthcare Delivery in Australia



Healthcare sector urged to invest in advanced IoT technologies to help reduce cost

Sydney, Australia March 22, 2018CenTrak®, the global leader in Enterprise Location and Sensory Services™ for healthcare, is empowering IoT solutions in the Australian healthcare sector, adding significant value beyond basic asset tracking. Healthcare facilities around the country are improving operational efficiency, quality of patient care, theatre flow, wait times, and protecting caregivers.

CenTrak provides market leading location and sensory services using IoT devices, leveraging a variety of technologies offering real-time locating of patients, visitors, equipment and staff. The offering incorporates seven distinct technologies which can be deployed separately or in a blended fashion, including: Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), Second Generation Infrared (Gen2IR™), Wi-Fi, Low Frequency (LF), Active RFID, Passive RFID, and Advanced Ultrasound (IRUS™).  CenTrak infrastructure may be wired or battery-powered with a 5-year battery guarantee.  Each device is supervised and configurable using Connect™, CenTrak’s configuration, system-health monitoring and advanced battery management platform.  

Nearly 1,000 thought-leading healthcare organizations in dozens of countries have already experienced the value of Clinical-Grade Locating™ and sensing technology.  Accuracy, low latency updates, and extended battery life are often the difference between the success or failure of healthcare workflow automation initiatives.
With accuracy to room-, bed-, bay-, chair-, shelf-, and dispenser-level and sub two second update speeds, healthcare organizations can:
  • Reliably capture interactions between staff, patients, visitors and equipment throughout the facility.  
  • Accurately monitor clinically relevant spaces enabling contact tracing, workflow automation, hand hygiene compliance, staff duress, and asset tracking and environmental monitoring use cases.
  • Increase overall operational efficiency and ultimately reduce costs.
Ari Naim, Chief Executive Officer at CenTrak, commented: “Adopting a multi-mode approach to location using specific technologies matched to use cases, helps healthcare facilities achieve measurable ROI faster, and makes it easy to expand location and sensing initiatives to create additional value. We are excited to continue our collaboration with Australian end users and partners, to maximize the impact IoT locating and sensing technology can have on healthcare delivery efficiency and costs.”
