Hospitals and healthcare systems often admit patients without knowing the status of the patients’ communicable disease(s). This status is only known after a medical evaluation and testing. In this situation, many patients and staff may have been exposed to the now-known communicable disease during their encounters with the patient. The potentially exposed contacts are at risk and need further investigation regarding exposure time and location.
With the assistance of an automatically generated contact tracing report which leverages data collected by RTLS, healthcare organizations can speed up the process of taking the necessary steps to minimize the spread of the disease. This may include immediately calling anyone who was in proximity to the infected person to let them know about potential exposure, and necessary next steps such as testing and quarantining. Since infectious diseases spread exponentially, the sooner potential carriers are notified and isolated, the faster we can stop potential exposure to other patients, healthcare providers, and the community at large.
