Healthcare establishments pride themselves on their ability to deliver prompt responses, accurate diagnoses, and speedy recoveries. In order to meet these goals, they must be able to find operation specific data and equipment. To decrease search times, automate inventory, and improve workflow, a total visibility solution spanning the entire healthcare facility is required.

Shipcom can deliver such a location tracking solution with bed-level accuracy using our perfected combination of visibility technology and execution excellence. Shipcom makes use of Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC) technologies like barcodes, RFID, and real-time location systems (RTLS) to improve visibility, automate inventory cycles, and optimize asset deployment across various wards.

Shipcom leverages the available wireless network in a healthcare environment – expanding upon the network where necessary – to transform your healthcare operations. As an industry benchmark, Shipcom’s location tracking solution gives real-time, bed/room/floor/building-level location of equipment, patients, and assets. Accurately locating the whereabouts of expensive, mission-critical medical equipment in a moment of need is the benchmark by which Shipcom prides itself.

By deploying an RF-based solution, our healthcare customers can improve their business processes. An instant assessment or historical trace of critical equipment and resources such as infusion pumps, ventilators, carts, laptops, wheelchairs, and key personnel can be made using the CATAMARAN® system. By locating critical equipment and resources faster, our healthcare customers handle more patients in a shorter time frame, increase turnover, and improve on the quality of patient care provided.

The solution is also equipped to handle pediatric patients, elderly patients, and others who require special care.  Real-time location and sensory data (blood pressure and body temperature) of these patients is monitored by CATAMARAN®, which generates alerts if the collected data is out of a prescribed range. By fully utilizing CATAMARAN®, caregivers can improve their operational efficiency in handling respective tasks and keep track of what matter most.
