CenTrak’s Unique Clinical Grade-Visibility™ Technology
What makes the difference in RTLS?
CenTrak’s patented Second Generation Infrared (Gen2IR™) technology delivers certainty-based location with the capability of segmenting spaces into clinically meaningful zones. For clinical applications, zones are typically patient rooms, beds, bays, nursing stations, hallway segments and other relevant workflow areas.
CenTrak’s platform delivers rapid location and condition updates capable of capturing interactions between equipment, patients and staff within seconds. The collection of clinical milestones are also facilitated using immediate button presses. CenTrak provides the only Real-Time Location System specifically engineered to handle the speed, precision and rigors of today’s healthcare environment.
CenTrak’s RTLS is battery-powered, easy to install and can leverage existing Wi-Fi infrastructure. Battery-powered devices are installed in patient care areas without the need to close rooms or deploy special infection prevention measures, resulting in little-to-no operational downtime.
In addition to being the most accurate hospital asset tracking system, CenTrak’s Clinical-Grade Visibility technology is an open location platform that can integrate seamlessly with both existing and new applications including Nurse Call, Electronic Health Records, Capacity Management, Bed Management, Asset Management, Computerized Maintenance Management and Hand Hygiene Compliance.

“It is so rewarding to see our staff so engaged with technology. Every day they come up with new and innovative ideas on how to use location data to provide the ultimate patient experience.”
VP Clinical Operations
"From a business standpoint, asset management pays for the RTLS infrastructure. However, the long term goal of RTLS is full integration with internal information systems for EMR, Lab, and RAD, among others. The activating principle for this system integration is ‘measuring and managing the patient journey’ where the entire patient experience can proceed in an efficient and clinically effective manner.”
CPHIMS, Project Consultant
“When I’m saving a quarter of a million dollars here and half-million dollars there relative to equipment management it’s substantial. And our end-users are so happy that instead of getting a phone call [saying] ‘how could you run out of this vital item’, I’m getting phone calls saying ‘I just want you to know, my nurses are talking about this on their own time, and how much they love your solution.”
