Locating Solutions for Nurses

When Time is critical

Have you spent lots of time searching for your colleagues in your place of work? Do you spend time calling around to locate a consultant? How much time has all of this activity taken you? Our assertion is that you have better things to do with your time. With our RTLS technology, you can put a stop to this wasted time.

Our Technology & Process of Deployment

Our Local Positioning System provides real-time tracking of staff and if required patients too. This then enables immediate pinpointing of their exact location – right down to their room and even exit position.

The technology uses revolutionary IRFID triple technology that combines a IR, RF (UHF), and LF (RF low frequency transponder) signals. This ultra-safe triple technology combination is at the heart of what makes our solution so powerful and secure for applications where people are looking for a robust, safe and reliable solution.

Each of the signalling technologies plays its part. The exact room location precision of IR, the vast range and constant communication of RF and the local positioning sensitivity of LF all make a scalable, powerful and cost effective tracking and identification solution that will start producing a return on investment quickly.

The tag’s location can then be displayed on either a graphical display (complete with a useful search box) or in the form of a more conventional ‘list’.  We have a wide variety of fields that can be customised. Fields include for example the name of the staff member, role title, the tag’s ID and last known location.

Security Feature – Escorting

By strategically adding LF wall mounting units on all exits, the system is able to identify if an authorised person is escorting the patient out of the exit. A member of staff wearing the ELPAS staff tags are then accepted by the system as authorised to leave the monitored zone with patients – without activating an alarm.  For audit purposes, be assured that all such escort activities are automatically captured in the EIRIS database to be referred to at a later time.


Clinical and security managers alike will appreciate our reports feature which will enable users to produce both real time status reports but also for retrospective historical analysis too.

Patient Flow

So much of good practice in healthcare relies on the timely flow of patients through a hospital or treatment centre.
Elements such as room turnover times, wait times, operating durations and overall length of stay overall length of stay are all vital to understand for better patient outcomes and a more efficient workflow.

By providing this location awareness in addition to real time patient status, average wait times for each stage of the patient’s journey will be reduced. Examples include testing, medications, the wait for feedback. All care staff will need to do is glance at an easy to understand digital whiteboard be aware of how long each stage of care is taking.  Costs will decrease and each stage will become seamless. Ultimately though – the real benefit will be that it will improve patient satisfaction and their levels of care.

Auto Alerts, Prompts and Reminders

When you’re stressed and short staffed, things often get missed. Simple alerts can be set up to alert you of specific events or ‘milestones’ having been passed. These could include a patient moving through to the next care stage, arriving at the waiting room (perhaps triggering a call for porters to go the waiting room), automation of room status updates and issuing bedroom cleaning requests

HL7 ADT Integration

The Elpas’ HL7 interface can update it’s internal database on receipt of ADT (Admit, Discharge, Transfer) events from a Hospital’s management system. This interface will avoid duplicate entry and will allow staff to continue to work with a single information system.
