Medical IoT Solutions With Bluetooth Technology
Interview with Kontakt.io company, We will learn more about the medical breakthroughs of Bluetooth technology. Faced with work stoppages and restrictions caused by the new coronavirus. Kontakt.io how to overcome the difficult and deploy solution for Medical institution customers.
In order to resist the spread of the new crown epidemic, Technicians who have received specific equipment installation training can‘t enter the courtyard of hospital anymore, this brings challenges to the deployment of indoor location service systems. To meet this challenge, Kontakt.io adopts a new design concept, that the hardware installation no longer dependent on certified and trained technicians. We have adopted the consumer electronics model and DIY principles in enterprise-level solutions. The customer just according to illustrate to finish three quick step after open the case that can install and operate our equipment, don't need the other special training.
What is the biggest obstacle to deploying technology in the medical field.
Deploy indoor IoT in the medical field, position service the biggest obstacle is the cost of monopoly proprietary systems. because it cannot be integrated with other sensors on the market, these systems lock medical customers in the product portfolio of one supplier. Relying on this monopoly,
the hardware that lacks innovation speed and innovative thinking can maintain a high price point. Due to the high price of traditional location services, its market penetration rate has stagnated at around 20-30%.
Kontakt.io believes that location services should become affordable services for institutions at all levels in the medical industry. As long as there is a Bluetooth chipset in the hardware, it can communicate with other hardware, no need a lot of integration and data interface. And achieve democratize of this layer of the system can reduce the total cost of ownership and improve the tolerance for newer sensors on the market.
As the most widely used and developed based on open standards one of the sensor communication protocols, As the most widely used and developed based on open standardsone of the sensor communication protocols, Bluetooth technology has broken the shackles of monopoly.
Space using and other location services how to help medical institutions optimize operations and improve patient care.
#Medical Equipment Tracking
Medical device tracking can help biomedicin/ the clinical engineering team searches for specific medical devices faster and implement its preventive maintenance plan. Medical device tracking can help biomedicin/ the clinical engineering team searches for specific medical devices faster and implement its preventive maintenance plan. It can help medical institutions comply abey joint committee requirements and optimize employee productivity.
This technology can also improve the visibility of mobile medical devices, help nurses reduce equipment hoarding. It can help equipment invest in work for a long time instead of backlog in cabinet, improve overall utilization. And as the utilization rate increases, hospital no need to rent or buy new equipment, optimize capital expenditure in finally.
#Patient workflow optimization
Track the real-time location of admitted patients can provide of flow data at various stages of care of patients for hospitals. Hospitals can use these data to find insufficient capacity, thereby solve the problem of influx of patients, reduce waiting time by adjusting workflow or increasing resources, improve patient discharged efficiency and optimize experience. In order to obtain better H-CAP scores and reimbursements. Patient tracking can also optimize the use of examination rooms and assist in determining whether need vacate more space to meet demand.On the other hand, in the case of spare capacity, the hospital can increase the number of appointments to increase income.
Medical staff have been attacked by patients or visitors for various reasons, using Bluetooth wearable devices with duress buttons can significantly improve employee safety. Bluetooth wearable device can also help avoid situations in which the patient loses and escapes and puts his life in danger.
Medical industry how is the response to these newly deployed systems.
The response was very positive.The healthcare system was pleasantly surprised after learning about the total cost of the Bluetooth indoor location/IoT system. Since can choose to use open source equipment from multiple vendors to create a custom solution suitable for specific niche use cases, the future of the medical industry is full of new possibilities.
