Patient Care Technology Systems Releases New Software to Locate People, Equipment

November 21, 2007 - Patient Care Technology Systems (PCTS), a subsidiary of Consulier Engineering Inc., yesterday released its second generation of its Amelior Tracker 2.0 software for automatically locating patients, staff and equipment.

The software can be implemented for a department or throughout a facility. It is also available as an integrated module within the company’s suite of workflow automation software where the real-time location of people and equipment works in combination with workflow intelligence to automatically track and orchestrate patient care status progression.

The Amelior Tracker 2.0 software captures patient, staff and equipment location data by integrating with a real-time locating system (RTLS) comprising of wireless personnel and asset tags, which communicate location information through a sensory network. The system is compatible with all major locating technologies, including ultrasound, infrared and Radio Frequency-based systems through a network of preferred locating hardware partners.

The software enables caregivers to quickly identify and locate scarce medical equipment as well as staff, patients, and virtually any entity through filtered list and map views of designated areas within a health care facility. Less time is spent locating resources needed to support patient flow. The identification and visualization of equipment location can reduce lost equipment expenses and can help improve the utilization and maintenance of existing assets.

The new release of Amelior Tracker features an improved user interface with enhanced search and identification tools to help caregivers locate resources as efficiently as possible. It is also available as an embedded module within the company’s recent release of Amelior ORTracker, the automatic patient tracking software for surgery departments, which reportedly enables staff to orchestrate and streamline patient flow with minimal manual data entry.

The Amelior Tracker software is part of the Amelior suite of automatic tracking and charting applications, which have supported more than three million high acuity patient encounters.
