Patient Care Technology Systems, announced that Moses Taylor Hospital has selected the company’s Amelior EDTracker® software to automatically track patients and assets in its 35,000 census emergency department. The software will use ultrasound locating from PCTS partner Sonitor Technologies.

Wireless patient, staff and asset tags communicate their real-time location to a network of sensors positioned throughout the department. The PCTS automatic tracking software receives this information and applies ED-specific workflow rules which measure location, movement and interactions between patients, staff and clinical equipment in order to identify and communicate patient care milestones as they occur.  All patient movement is automatically measured and time-stamped which is accessible through the software’s extensive workflow reporting tools. An integrated dashboard informs department leadership about surges in patient volume by communicating key patient flow metrics in real-time.

The Sonitor ultrasound indoor positioning system will provide automatic capture of real-time location data. The ultrasound tags utilize sound waves to communicate to detectors throughout the department. The sound-based locating technology creates no electromagnetic interference with medical devices.

Edward Roman, chief information and privacy officer at Moses Taylor Hospital said, Our selection of the Amelior EDTracker workflow system for our emergency department is part of an enterprise-wide initiative to enhance our patient surge capabilities.

Being able to visualize not just the location of resources but also the care progression of patients without requiring manual data entry by busy caregivers will strengthen our emergency preparedness.

Tony Marsico, CEO of PCTS said, We are very pleased to welcome Moses Taylor Hospital to our growing family of customers who are making automatic patient and asset tracking an integral part of their care delivery process. We look forward to partnering with Moses Taylor as they expand workflow automation throughout their facility.
