ACCURO.AI RTLS: the most humane and efficient wandering control system is already on the market
The quality of user or patient care in nursing homes and hospitals has taken a qualitative leap in recent years. Thus, at ALCAD we are leading a new paradigm shift at a technological level with the integration of Artificial Intelligence in the nurse call system. Specifically, the wandering control system with AI, within the Real Time Location Systems (RTLS), allows users or patients to be located in the most humane and efficient way, as it doesn't need physical elements (wearables or tags).
Wandering control systems are a delicate piece in the day-to-day life of any hospital or nursing home, since they are in charge of identifying and locating people in real time and launching alarms in programmed cases, 100% configurable and as part of the nurse call system.
In this case, the application of Artificial Intelligence allows a qualitative leap with respect to current models, since it facilitates the control of users or patients in a humane and efficient way. By not needing physical elements (wearables or tags), the person is not stigmatized, traditionally forced to wear a necklace or bracelet, for example.
Indeed, it is now possible to eliminate any accessory that may be lost or cause inconvenience to users or patients. With a single image hosted on the server (through the ACCURO Viewer application) and through the cameras installed in the centre, the system is capable of recognizing and locating any person and launching an alarm in the programmed cases, at the same time that, for example, it closes a specific door.
And without violating any legislation on Data Protection: the user will have given their prior consent to the file of their image on the local server and the recording of images is not necessary, so that no one can have access to this information.
It is, in short, a tool that increases the safety of the user or patient and optimizes the working time of professionals, reducing operating costs.
“Active” responses: the future is to anticipate problems
All this technology is already on the market. After more than a year of working in collaboration with other leading companies, at ALCAD we have been able to make make ACCURO.AI available for nursing homes and hospitals, a solution that responds to multiple needs. In 2008 we were the first to create a 100% IP nurse call system, and now we are again spearheading this new paradigm shift.
ACCURO.AI is a client's proprietary system, installed on its own server, so it does not require an internet connection or, therefore, the hiring of cloud services (Azure, DataFlow, AWS, etc.). A decisive advantage, since it protects the centre from possible cyberattacks from the outside, allowing the creation of a 100% secure work environment against cybercriminals.
Years ago, pressing the call button from the room became the quintessential means of making a call to the nursing station. The user had a problem and, with this simple gesture, they were able to instantly transmit the notice to the social health team, which from that moment started the corresponding protocol. In other words, there was a "reactive" response from the nursing team to an event that had already occurred.
Now, with the application of AI, the responses become “active”. In other words, the system makes it possible to anticipate problems before they occur, providing high value-added services.
This advance will allow, in short, to provide staff with natural work tools, with increasingly smaller and more powerful devices, with multiple functions and more integrated into the decoration. Users and patients will perceive a warm and friendly environment, with exquisite and minimalist designs that help create a feeling of comfort.
First solution within the ACCURO.AI system
In conclusion, ACCURO.AI RTLS is the first solution within the ACCURO.AI system of ALCAD. This advance is the result of the effort of manufacturing companies, such as ALCAD, to listen to the needs of health and social health centres, which forces us to adapt technological changes every day and translate them into new and increasingly modern devices.
From touch panels to call devices with integrated audio, through mobile nursing stations with tablets and smartphones, each element of the system is designed for optimal management of the center and monitoring of patients or users.
The future of healthcare and dependency is here: 100% manufactured in Spain, ACCURO.AI is the only solution that anticipates problems.
