  13. 13. Turning Visibility into Value AeroScout’s healthcare visibility solutions use standard Wi-Fi networks to provide hospitals with improved patient care, increased safety and cost savings. Track Alert Manage Integrate …current and …automated alerting and …the utilization of …location and status historical location notification (pump leaving equipment, control information to existing of medical devices a protected zone, overdue the workflow and hospital applications and people, from a for maintenance, requiring utilize location data (asset mgmt, ORIS, EMR, Web interface delivery, etc.) for operational etc.) analysis
  14. 14. How Does it Work? 1. Wi-Fi-Based Active RFID tags send a tiny wireless 802.11 signal at a regular interval □ Tag’s messages consume less than 1/2msec, tags do not associate with Wi-Fi access points and do not require thousands of IP addresses 2. Signal is received by the Wi-Fi access points, and is sent to a Location Engine 3. The Location Engine determines the tag’s location, and sends it to the visibility software 4. Visibility software uses location data to display maps and reports, enable searches, create alerts, manage assets, etc.

  16. 16. Challenges Increasing Regulations Expanded Oversight Patient Demands Taxed Staff
  17. 17. Challenges • Patient test results, organs, blood bags, vaccines, tissues, pharmaceuticals, breast milk, food and other items require strict temperature ranges for quality patient care and patient safety • Joint Commission regulates temperature management process • Medications must be stored under stable conditions • Temperature must be monitored and logged at least once per day • Records of temperature logs must be available for a 12 month period • In case of deviations, corrective actions must be taken and documented • Audits are at least every three years plus random, unannounced audits • Semi-annual calibration requirements for temperature monitoring systems • Nursing, lab and pharmacy staff perform manual temperature monitoring and logging each day • Logging mechanisms are unreliable (lost data, gaps in data) and often expensive • Labor is utilized inefficiently
  18. 18. Challenges • The Joint Commission primarily regulates the process of temperature monitoring and not the desired ranges and as a result there are many other regulatory bodies that are involved in setting the temperature monitoring requirements to include: • CAP (College of American Pathologists) • AABB (American Association of Blood Banks) • CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments; administered by CMS & FDA) • The Joint Commission (formerly JCAHO) • CMS (Medicare) • FDA (Food and Drug Agency) • NIST (National Institutes of Standards & Technology) • The loss of The Joint Commission accreditation may result in the loss Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement

  22. 22. Temperature Monitoring Solution • Wi-Fi RFID Temperature Sensor Tags • AeroScout temperature sensor Wi-Fi tags are placed in refrigerators • Provides constant temperature readings sent periodically as Registered customized (every x seconds or minutes) with the • No hard wires and easy to install FDA • Battery powered tags and wireless communication link continue to monitor even if there are power shortages in refrigeration units • Temperature range -30° Celsius to +75° Celsius (-22° F to 167° F) • Software • AeroScout’s Web-based MobileView software tracks, alerts, manages and integrates the temperatures and displays all of the logged temperatures and alerts Includes “Corrective Action” field to document notes for Joint Commission compliance Custom properties can be used for calibration dates and checkups
  23. 23. Temperature Monitoring Solution • Temperature Alert - Automated alert when temperature is out of desired range • Other alerts include: • Tag Battery - alerts on low battery status of tags • Out of Sight – alerts on tags not reporting temperature readings for a certain period of time • Alert types include pop-up messages, e-mails, pagers, text messages, VOIP phones and badges, and integration to hospital information systems
  24. 24. Temperature Monitoring Solution • Reports • Maintain temperature current and historical data in database • Data is not lost and no monitoring gaps in records • Temperature reports can be exported to Excel, PDF or XML, or can be printed • Data can be stored for several years • Graphical or tabular views, as well as trending • Reports include: • Current Temperature Report • Historical Temperature Report (at least one year per Joint Commission) • Events and Corrective Actions Report (records alerts)
  25. 25. The Benefits Cost Control Talent Utilization Regulatory Compliance
  26. 26. Benefits • Leverage Wi-Fi infrastructure for the lowest cost temperature monitoring solution: • Regulatory compliance for ongoing and recorded temperature monitoring and stable storage of medications; FDA compliant solution • Ensures patient safety by maintaining safe temperature ranges • Improved quality of care by freeing up caregivers time • Eliminates spoilage
  27. 27. ROI – Temperature Monitoring Item Calculation Before After Temperature 300 refrigerators/freezers, checked three $1,368,750 Five alerts per Monitoring per day = 328,500 x 5” per check= day or 1,825 27,375 hours x $50 hour= $1,368,750. alerts= $7,604 Over $1,361,146 in Cost Savings, Allowing Clinical Support Staff to Focus on Patient Care
  28. 28. Assumptions General Assumptions • Medium to large sized hospital (approx. 300 beds) • Labor cost of $50 per hour Temperature Monitoring • 300 refrigerators, freezers and deep freezers • Locating, checking and logging a refrigerator or freezer temperature takes 5” • Freezers, refrigerators and deep freezers are checked three times per day • Five AeroScout Temperature Monitoring alerts will occur each day requiring manual intervention

  30. 30. Solution Architecture Software AeroScout Enterprise MobileView Applications Location Engine Wi-Fi Infrastructure Wi-Fi AP’s Wi-Fi Temperature Sensor Tags
  31. 31. Step 1: Categorize Refrigerators
  32. 32. Step 2: Activate & Mount Tags • Activate and configure AeroScout tags • AeroScout T2 Tags are mounted or placed inside refrigerators and freezers
  33. 33. Step 3: Configure Event Monitors • Configure dozens of event monitors through a user friendly interface: • Temperature thresholds • Tamper events (if tag is removed without permission from refrigerator) • Out of sight events – when tag messages have not been sent for a long time • Low battery events
  34. 34. Step 3: Configure Event Monitors • Use Temperature tab under “Sensors” to Enable/disable temperature sensor reports. • Set the temperature report interval (report every X tag messages) • Report temperature only according to a specified threshold (higher than, lower than etc.) • Corrective action logging for when temperature leaves desired range
  35. 35. Step 3: Configure Event Monitors • Event Monitor will trigger an alert each time the temperature reported by a tag meets one of the following criteria: • Higher or lower than the defined threshold • Inside or outside of the defined range • Event Condition sets the filter to a desired level of sensitivity • Eliminates false triggers – for example if a refrigerator door is opened, a trigger will only be noted if the reading is for a defined consecutive period
  36. 36. Step 3: Configure Event Monitors • Define actions to be taken once event conditions are met: • Email • Pager • Text message • VOIP phone or badge • Other applications – through Web Services, HTTP, JMS
  37. 37. Step 4: View Reports
  38. 38. Temperature Monitoring Success Story Vijay Tummala – AeroScout
  39. 39. DHL and Microlise Premier Global Delivery Network Challenges • Lack of visibility of pharmaceutical products temperature condition in transport Solution • En route wireless monitoring – Wi-Fi temperature sensor tags, GPRS modem and GPS integration • Temperature data is transferred to Microlise Transport Management Centre system • Wi-Fi active RFID allows monitoring and location tracking into the distribution centers and warehouses in the supply chain, and to the end user customer site Benefits • Improved safety and patient care
  40. 40. Jan Yperman Hospital Quote "Automatically monitoring and reporting on asset temperatures will free our nurses and clinical staff up to do what they do best: provide our patients with the highest quality care possible," said Christophe Mouton, Director of Administration, Finance, ICT and Technical Service, Jan Yperman Hospital. "The ability to use our existing Wi-Fi infrastructure to monitor temperature is a major advantage offered by AeroScout, and one that keeps costs low while integrating easily into our clinical environment."
