System Provides Real-Time Patient, Asset Movement Data

The new Amelior ED 2.0 emergency department information system combines the Amelior ED Tracker, a passive-based patient and asset tracking solution and Amelior ED, an information management system featuring computer-based nurse and physician charting, order management and clinical decision support for documenting the care of emergency department patients in real time.
The system minimizes data entry by hospital staff by automatically tracking the movement of patients and mobile medical equipment using wireless badges worn by patients and staff and sensors placed throughout the department. Locating technologies such as infrared, active RFID and ultra wideband are utilized.
The software integrates rules-based intelligence to communicate and time-stamp key patient milestones such as caregiver interactions and order status, presenting the information on electronic spreadsheets and customized map views of the department.
