Location-Driven Patient Flow Monitoring and Discharge Planning
Technology Digital/ICT/Mobile Solutions
Ubisense technology accurately locates the position of tagged items within an indoor environment, monitoring interactions between these objects and utilising the information to drive software applications. The technology is currently used in challenging manufacturing environments to monitor, control and optimise complex assembly processes. There are a number of surprising parallels between the ad-hoc, non- linear, processes used in off-line rework and those found in A&E Departments. Therefore this project explores whether the same proven techniques, employed by over half of the major automotive companies, could be used to generate similar benefits within A&E for patient flow and admissions management.
