Patient Care Technology Systems and Sonitor Technologies

May 10, 2007 - Patient Care Technology Systems, a subsidiary of Consulier Engineering, Inc. and Sonitor Technologies recently announced a strategic alliance to jointly market their hospital workflow technologies, coordinating sales and marketing efforts to provide a turnkey workflow solution that integrates Sonitor’s ultrasound-based indoor positioning system with PCTS’ AmeliorTM automatic patient and asset tracking software.

The integrated system is expected to provide real-time identification of patient care milestones and the reliably accurate location of clinical resources for caregivers in areas such as the emergency, surgery and outpatient services departments. Caregivers will reportedly be better able to anticipate and manage workflows for safer and more efficient care as a result.

The Sonitor indoor positioning system (IPS) uses detectors and tags that are linked through the existing wired or wireless local area network (LAN) to a digital file containing all vital statistics and information about the item or person being monitored. The motion activated rag transmits an identification signal using ultrasound waves to special detectors that use Sonitor patented ultrasound signal Digital Signal Processing (DSP) algorithms. The Detectors transmit signals via an existing LAN to a central computer that stores the information about the tag’s room location and the time of receipt of the signal. Sonitor’s ultrasound technology ensures that detectors interpret tag signals without risk of interference from any environmental noise or other signals, nor interfere with sensitive instruments. The system is designed for safety and all emitted sound pressure levels are within the international regulations for the safe use of ultrasound.
