Intelligent InSites transforms automatically-collected data into actionable insights, according to the company. Through its interoperable, hardware-agnostic, real-time location system (RTLS) software, Intelligent InSites gathers data from real-time locations, condition sensing, and other systems, then delivers meaningful information to the right person, at the right time, on the right device.

The InSites RTLS Solution for Asset Management, pictured here, enables hospitals to optimize equipment inventories and procurement, as well as reduce rental expenses. By eliminating the time needed to find available equipment, hospitals lets the nursing staff, clinical engineering, and facilities management make better use of their time.

The InSites RTLS software is integrated with a variety of RTLS hardware, including active RFID, infrared/RF, passive RFID, ultrasound, Wi-Fi, as well as ZigBee wireless technology standards for low powered sensors and other mobile products. Multiple location technologies can be particularly useful in integrated health delivery networks that have multiple hospitals or facilities and may not want to limit themselves to a single RTLS technology. The software enables incorporation of multiple RTLS technologies based on a particular use case, such as asset management, patient flow, and temperature monitoring, based on the preference of each facility within the entire healthcare enterprise.
