When contagions visit your organization, will quick, accurate information be at your fingertips?

Health systems relying on manual contact tracing experience a labor-intensive, multi-day process subject to human error and guessing. Your organization needs to be prepared when public confidence and regulatory scrutiny demand it.

 

 

 

Manual contact tracing has real consequences:

 

Speed

It often takes days to identify those who may have been exposed to an infected person using manual contact tracing

Accuracy

Interviews and self-reported information are the primary tools of manual contact tracing, often resulting in errors

Completeness

Relying on human memories and manual logs can’t always recreate the pathway a contagion takes through an organization

When exposure occurs, will you rely on interviews for contact tracing? Midmark RTLS eliminates the guesswork.

 

Capture interactions as staff provides care

  • Automatic, accurate reports in minutes versus manual, error-prone contact tracing that could take days
  • Interfaces with your organization’s EMR and nurse call systems
  • Room-, bed- and chair-level accuracy

 

Degree-of-Exposure-CT

Beyond contact: Know who, where, when and how long

  • Determine which badged patients and staff had direct, secondary, or tertiary exposure
  • Fast location intelligence reveals who was present in specific locations and for how long
  • Midmark RTLS data is clinical-grade and HIPAA-compliant

The automated way to manage contagion reporting

Speed

Once potential exposure is suspected, simply run a robust Midmark RTLS Degree of Exposure report in minutes

Accuracy

Midmark RTLS contact tracing offers room-, bed- and chair-level accuracy to identify the location and identities of those potentially exposed to the infected person

Completeness

A Midmark RTLS contact tracing report can reveal where the badged contagious person was over time, each badged person they came in contact with, and for how long

“We knew who was exposed and for how long. We never would have had (that information) without the Midmark RTLS badges and the nurse call reports.”
