Quuppa, Nesa Solutions Team Up on Location-based Workflows for Health Care

Quuppa, a provider of indoor positioning technology, has announced that its partner Nesa Solutions has launched its INSIGHT Location Intelligence system. Quuppa provides an open, low-cost and scalable platform for partners that require accurate, real-time positioning. INSIGHT Location Intelligence is a robust, end-to-end software solution that helps health-care systems and other enterprises effectively manage personnel, patients and assets in their environment. INSIGHT utilizes Quuppa's positioning technology to locate individual and assets down to a few centimeters, and uses that data to create business rules surrounding their movements.

The first announced deployment of the INSIGHT solution is with Nicklaus Children's Health System, in Miami, Fla.—a 2.5 million-square-foot facility that demonstrates the enterprise-grade quality that Nesa Solutions brings to health care and other industries, as well as the scalability of the Quuppa platform.

"With the addition of the INSIGHT services platform into our environment, we will be able to accurately track and manage many of the inefficiencies present in healthcare today," said Ed Martinez, Nicklaus Children's Health System's CIO and senior VP, in a prepared statement. "From hand washing compliance to patient and provider tracking to quality care management and more, we believe our investment in this new technology is the next generation in healthcare compliance, management and outcomes improvement."

One example of INSIGHT in action involves hospital hygiene, a highly regulated area of day-to-day hospital operations. Using the INSIGHT system with Quuppa's location information as a key component, hospitals can establish a business rule to track the path of doctors and nurses to ensure compliance based on their path and stopping point at the sink or sanitizer dispenser. Among other use cases is the tracking of mobile equipment such as crash carts, wheelchairs, IV stands and other valuable assets.

"Everything in a hospital is based on motion, from the time a patient walks into the door to discharge," said Neil Salem, Nesa Solutions' CEO and founder, in the prepared statement. "Because we know where everything is we have the ability to impact not only business processes, but the quality of patient care by making it a more personal experience. Hand hygiene, patient security, asset tracking, crash cart readiness—all of these are separate workflows that we've brought together in INSIGHT and enabled all sorts of innovative capabilities because we have the most accurate dot on the map with the Quuppa technology."

"Quuppa's highly accurate location technology allows companies like Nesa Solutions to execute workflows that no one in the industry has been able to do before," added Fabio Belloni, Quappa's general manager and co-founder, in the prepared statement. "They have been a valuable partner in bringing to life solutions for healthcare and other industries enabled by the most advanced indoor positioning technology."
