Hospital patient and asset tracking vendor TeleTracking Technologies Inc. has introduced a next-generation of its real-time locating system, called TeleTracking RTLS.

Patient and staff locating applications now integrate with the vendor's Capacity Management suite of software. This includes tracking of patients, beds and patient transport functions. The new version of RTLS also integrates with the vendor's predictive analytics and reporting software.

New functionality for RTLS is significantly improved accuracy of the locating technology to provide 100 percent confidence of room, bed, or bay level accuracy, according to the Pittsburgh-based company. For instance, previous technology could pinpoint a patient in the emergency department or in a room on the nurse floors; now it can identify the bay within the department or the bed within the room, as well as more specified locations of equipment.
