Our latest case study is now up and ready for viewing!
We were delighted to be approached by ArjoHuntleigh to help them pilot a real-time asset tracking system for beds and their respective components in one of London’s major NHS Trusts and hospital. Even better, it was an opportunity think outside the box and find an innovative solution to the cost and infrastructure requirements set by the Trust.
The result? One of the first Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) applications within the NHS. Given the lack of options in the market, we commissioned the development of Conneq BLE tags that would meet the rigors of hospital use, have an extended battery life and utilise existing Bluetooth reading devices on hospital wards (ie PCs at nurses stations and mobile devices) – so no need for any extra infrastructure installation.
All of the bed location data is then fed into and managed by our SenseAnyWare platform, which is integrated into ArjoHuntleigh’s eTrack system and also manages location history and other auditing and workflow processes.
The pilot is now tracking 900 beds and 50 specialist mattresses in the hospital. We have helped achieve both financial and operational objectives for the Trust, and shown additional benefits for staff and patients.
