Patient Care Technology Systems (â€œPCTSâ€), a subsidiary of Consulier Engineering Inc., offers solutions to healthcare providers to improve patient processing and flow, increase capacity, and improve patient and staff safety with real-time location and tracking equipment.
The company today announced it has been chosen by Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center to provide the facility with tracking and management technology for its 4.1 million-square-foot campus. PCTS will track and manage hospital assets through the integration of a hybrid RLTS from CenTrak, a leading provider of tracking infrastructure for healthcare facilities.
“After a comprehensive, multi-year RTLS marketplace review, we chose Patient Care Technology Systems because of their proven experience in implementing scalable, workflow-intelligent solutions that can meet our demanding current and future needs,” Tony Marra CHFM, director of facility services at WFUBMC stated in the press release. “Their ability to integrate the right locating technology with software that can be tailored to manage diverse workflows at the significant scale that we plan to automate, made PCTS with CenTrak the only choice for our health system.”
PCTS will first install monitoring abilities for the temperature of patient medications and tracking devices for IV pumps at North Carolina Baptist Hospital, WFUBMCâ€™s primary clinical facility. PCTS will also track all stretchers and wheel chairs.
With 22 subsidiary or affiliate hospitals, and more than 100 outreach activities in the Winston-Salem region, WFUBMC is one of the nationâ€™s preeminent academic medical centers. PCTSâ€™ agreement with the facility is big business; and for WFUBMC, it means hospital improvement and cost savings.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center as the newest member of our growing family of health care facilities,” said Tony Marsico, president and CEO of PCTS. “Real-time location enabled workflow automation offers tremendous cost savings and revenue potential to hospitals seeking to improve resource utilization and improve the efficiency of key service lines. WFUBMC’s workflow automation vision is one of the most significant examples to date of the healthcare marketplace’s recognition of the potential scope that is possible.”
