Business Intelligence and Actionable Information

Overview

image91

TrackStar is a whole hospital solution to track patients, caregivers, consumables, equipment and space utilization for all departments driving better cash flow and gross margins. It uses low cost RFID sensors as the heart of an evidence driven system to deliver benefits ranging from:

  1. More surgery cases per OR room
  2. Better hand hygiene for less hospital acquired infections
  3. Superior patient ambulation
  4. PAR level inventory management
  5. Eliminating out of stocks
  6. Managing lot expiration and errors
  7. Increasing inventory turns
  8. Reducing errors in preference cards
  9. Increasing staff productivity

Deploying TrackStar as a hospital wide system offers superior payback and ROI compared to any other investment a hospital might make. It also future proofs because expanding the system is done inexpensively by reusing the same infrastructure and applying a low cost RFID tag 

Problems Solved Via TrackStar

  1. Asset Utilization – reduce search times and hoarding
  2. Work Flow – improve patient outcomes; interactions, hourly analytics, queue busting
  3. Hand Hygiene – improve actual (vs. reported) hand hygiene compliance to >90%
  4. HAI Forensics –  now when a HAC event occurs- staff can immediately find, and isolate all staff and equipment that had been in the quarantined area - plus they can identify every other room that person or asset had been in since leaving the quarantined area 
  5. Patient Care – rounding, ambulation, pressure ulcers, fall angel, nurse call response times
  6. Operating Room – faster room turnover & accurate preference cards
  7. Inventory – reduce out of stock and expiration loss, optimize par values facility-wide

Improve the Patient Care Experience

  1. Lower Hospital Acquired Infections
  2. Optimize Staff:Patient Ratio
  3. Optimize Patient Length of Stay
  4. Decrease Left Without Treatment
  5. Reduce Patient Falls
  6. Track Patient Ambulation
  7. Raise Five Star Medicare Rating
  8. Improve Workflow
  9. Increase OR Case Flow

Cumulative Layers of ROI from One Underlying Solution

How TrackStar Works

image92

EASY AS 1-2-3

 

STEP 1  

Place tags on items such as beds, IV pumps, heart telemetry, ultrasounds, surgical instruments, etc.     

STEP 2  

RFID enable your hospital, surgery center, or clinical facility.    

STEP 3  

Actionable healthcare intelligence to run your hospital better.


HARDWARE

Infinitely customizable RFID TAGS, readers and scanners that gather and transmit MEANINGFUL DATA every second of every day, without a break and without needing overtime pay


Placed strategically throughout a specific hospital POINT OF INTEREST – medical floor, ICU, OR, ER, equipment, staff, hand-washing station, or an entire hospital


Modular solution - can start small and grow to encompass the entire facility


All data gathered with ZERO EFFORT from hospital personnel


SOFTWARE

Proprietary TRACKSTAR analytic software that provides business intelligence & actionable information to your managers and users

- instant visibility and analysis of real-time, empirical data


Easy to understand, unequivocally accurate

- 24/7 monitoring/tracking requires no additional FTE’s


RFID IS AMAZING

Over 10 billion RFID tags sold last year

- Governed by ISO standards (ISO 1800-63)

- Huge choice for off the shelf tags

- Allows for rapid deployment


How Has TrackStar Driven Such Significant Gains on a Sustained Basis?

image93

We document existing processes to baseline existing performance metrics 


By identifying all characteristics (including bottlenecks and inefficiencies) of the current workflow we can seamlessly and effectively implement tactics that create the least disruption to patient care and existing processes


Once TRACKSTAR is installed and functional, data can be gathered, analyzed and reported without disrupting the ongoing operational processes  


Harold Clampitt, CEO & Founder of ARS is the inventor and spearhead for this unique way of maximizing patient care while generating cumulative layers of ROI from a single scalable technology solution 


Multiple points of distinction evolving from one underlying TRACKSTAR platform. Just one of the multiple Use Cases generates enough cost savings to pay for the underlying hardware and a generous ROI to the bottom line


Cumulative ROI is achieved when multiple solutions are deployed (Hand Hygiene + Inventory, etc.). The incremental cost of adding additional tags is marginal once the initial infrastructure is in-place


PRE-DESIGNED FOR FULL INTEGRATION

  • API for any sensors
  • Responsive Web Design
  • HL7 interface for import and export
  • Large scale modular system with Single Sign-on
  • Cloud, virtual machine, on-site server - satiates any IT department protocol

Every Department in the Hospital Benefits

INFECTION CONTROL

A CDC study indicates the cost for hospital acquired infections is approximately $21k per year per bed


In 2012, one out of every eight patients suffered a HAC during a hospital stay


However, 87% of hospitals do not follow evidence-based hand hygiene guidelines that would contribute to their prevention


In only 19 months, TrackStar helped improve hand hygiene compliance at one of the Nation's 15 Top Health Systems from under 25% to 86%, they have presently improved to 90%-91%


INVENTORY MANAGEMENT

By utilizing Six-Sigma, LEAN and pKANBAN principles, TrackStar utilizes RFID to keep count with improved accuracy. Ensure on-hand supply matches demand. Coordinate PAR levels across multiple stock areas, minimize lot expiration waste, and lower buffer stock


Utilizing TrackStar improved inventory turnover from 2.5X to 7X for one of the Nation's 15 Top Health Systems  - generating a one time savings of $3.7M  


ASSET UTILIZATION/TRACKING

Location Engine - find equipment with ease using easy floor plan push pin markers

- Stops equipment hoarding

- Quickly locate a desired piece of equipment


CLINICAL PRODUCTIVITY

  • Staff:Patient Ratio
  • EVS Productivity Reporting
  • OR Turnover Team Responses
  • Attribution for Patient Safety & Care
  • Ambulation
  • Queue Busting

TrackStar puts actionable information at your fingertips
