The high-level idea is that one or more bluetooth-emitting beacons are placed in patient rooms that a hospital or private medical practice wishes to monitor. When set to tracking, this mobile application detects these Bluetooth signals and logs the entry and exit times of a provider on a server to provide the ability to confirm that patient satisfaction is bolstered and hospital ordinances are met.
Currently there is no automated method for collecting this information, which affords little to no insight into the time care providers spend with the patients they see. This application allows a healthcare institution to track the activities of their staff simply by having them login and push a button. With the enriched knowledge provided by this app, both hospitals and private practices can confidently ensure that their patients are given world-class care.
