Intelligent Locations Inc. asked to QUALITANCE to build a solution for real-time tracking and visualization of equipment and people (patients and personnel) in hospital areas. Every year, hospitals in the US misplace and lose equipments worth 20% of their yearly budget.
The system needed to provide precise real-time assets localization and utilization data, as well as analytics and reporting. For the first time in the history of hospitals, COOs would be able to understand the true utilization rate of their equipment and attach real-life metrics to the hospital workflows.
We built the proof-of-technology prototype in two days, using BLE (Bluetooth low energy) trackers and mobile phones. After identifying the best hardware solution, we started developing the full IoT solution.
We translated the solution into easy to read statuses, then we automated the installation process and generalized it. Together we discovered and implemented additional high-value opportunities.
For instant access and real-time information about assets, we created an intuitive, user-friendly native iOS mobile app. We developed the MVP in 10 weeks and continued to build and deliver updates towards v1.0.
