Purposeful rounding, if done properly and on a schedule, will increase patient care in the areas of Quality and Safety. Patient satisfaction scores have also improved when there is more attention shown to patients, their needs, and room environment. Research shows that purposeful rounding will reduce patient falls and pressure ulcers, thus reducing LOS (length of stay) and CPC (cost per case).

WellTraks Rounding will electronically track purposeful rounds by using a smart device. The system is designed to record every time the healthcare personnel passes a sensor beacon. The personnel’s ID, the time stamp, duration and location are captured near real time. The data can be reviewed and reported thru web services at any time.

Hand Hygiene is an effective way to prevent infections. Clean hands will reduce the spread of germs that cause infections. On average healthcare personnel clean their hands less than they should. It is proven that microbes causing HAI (Hospital Acquired Infection) are most times spread on hands of healthcare personnel.

WellTraks Hand Hygiene will track both hand sanitization or hand washing. The system is designed to record every time the healthcare personnel dispenses either soap or sanitizer. The personnel’s ID, the time stamp, type dispensed, and location are captured near real time. The data can be reviewed and reported thru web services at any time. Alerts can be monitored to determine if personnel have sanitized or washed their hands before contact with patients.
