CenTrak Launches Edge™ - Empowering Healthcare Providers to Unlock the Value of Enterprise Location Services

Leading healthcare facility leverages unique program to transform the patient experience

NEWTOWN, Penn., Jan. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CenTrak®, healthcare's leading provider of Enterprise Location Services™, announced today the launch of Edge™ – a program that empowers healthcare providers to maximize the financial and clinical benefits of CenTrak's Real-Time Location System (RTLS).  Through its extensive partner ecosystem, Edge emphasizes the importance of an open location platform enabling the integration of existing legacy applications and new RTLS focused solutions.

Edge provides healthcare leaders with enterprise-wide location data which can be used to make well-informed decisions for their patients, staff and bottom line. Offering the benefits of a unified service delivery model, Edge is managed through highly qualified Systems Integrators and provides healthcare facilities access to over one hundred and thirty (130) certified Solution Providers.  The program was founded on flexibility – enabling end-users to maintain focus on use case prioritization and value documentation.  The comprehensive suite of services offered via Edge includes deployment services, device management, and success management.

St. Joseph Mercy Oakland (Pontiac, MI), a subsidiary of Trinity Health (Livonia, MI), was among the first to implement Edge.  St. Joe's began deploying CenTrak in 2012 with the integration of automated nurse call cancellation functionality.  "We chose CenTrak because it complemented the technology infrastructure we were building and integrated nicely with other technologies we had already decided to pursue," states Robert Jones, Senior Director of Information Technology at St. Joseph Mercy Oakland. "We see value in a variety of use cases for RTLS applications. Looking forward, we will continue to explore opportunities to further integrate and deploy technologies that benefit our patients and caregivers."

With the help of Edge, St. Joe's offers several patient experience enhancements that make up its Intelligent Care System, whereby multiple applications are integrated together to enhance healthcare delivery, efficiency and quality.  St. Joe's leverages Enterprise Location Services to stream location and sensory data to their clinical applications.  The hospital also has integrated CenTrak's Enterprise Location Services with Nurse Call, Patient Education, Smart Room, and Hand Hygiene Compliance Solutions. The most recent integration utilizes CenTrak Single Use Patient Tags to stream real-time updates of patient location to St. Joe's capacity management system.
