Know who in your organization was potentially exposed to a contagion—and for how long.
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.
It often takes days to identify those who may have been exposed to an infected person using manual contact tracing
Interviews and self-reported information are the primary tools of manual contact tracing, often resulting in errors
Relying on human memories and manual logs can’t always recreate the pathway a contagion takes through an organization
Once potential exposure is suspected, simply run a robust Midmark RTLS Degree of Exposure report in minutes
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
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
Washington-based Columbia Basin Health was one of the first outpatient facilities in the country to diagnose a COVID-19 positive patient and was able to identify exposed staff within minutes thanks to Midmark RTLS technology.
