Designing better mental healthcare facilities

Combined wayfinding and tracking solution launched

RFiD Discovery, a provider of identification and location tracking solutions, has partnered with BuzzStreets, an award-winning indoor navigation platform provider, to offer a combined wayfinding and asset tracking solution for healthcare providers.

The two organisations say the partnership ‘brings together the expertise of two innovative companies in a pioneering solution for healthcare facilities seeking to improve patient care and operational efficiency’.

The ‘combined solution’ will utilise RFiD Discovery's RFID-based asset tracking technology, which allows healthcare providers to track and manage assets such as medical equipment, consumables, and high-value items including medical implants in real-time. The two companies explain: “Adding BuzzStreets’ indoor navigation technology will enable patients, visitors, and staff, to navigate hospitals easily, improving patient satisfaction and reducing stress and anxiety.”

The BuzzStreets indoor navigation technology will – BuzzStreets says – ‘help to reduce the number of patient no-shows or late arrivals which waste clinicians’ time, and can have a significant financial impact on the hospital’. It also reduces the need for patients to ask for directions. For people who require an accessible route, the software can provide a personalised navigation service, for example, suggesting stair-free routes to wheelchair users. In addition, the technology can be used by new staff or locums not familiar with the building to find their way around a hospital. The software also provides data for analysis to allow healthcare providers to plan the most efficient routes to get people where they need to be.
