Healthcare Systems We’ve Helped
Vizzia Technologies helps its Hospital System customers save millions of dollars.
Vizzia Healthcare Technology Solutions
RTLS Asset ManagementValuable assets go missing. Caregivers spend too much time searching for the equipment they need (or hoarding equipment to make sure they know where it is). Eventually, your hospital buys or rents more equipment than you actually need. Save money and improve patient safety with Vizzia’s 24/7 asset management solutions.
Hand Hygiene Compliance
Hand hygiene is the #1 way to reduce Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) and protect patients and staff.
Vizzia offers two proven options to boost hand hygiene rates: Mobile monitoring app and a fully-managed RTLS solution to reduce infection rates and preventable illness.
Environmental MonitoringFor sensitive products like vaccines and lab samples, environment matters. An unnoticed change can result in money lost and patients put at risk. Vizzia’s industry-leading environmental monitoring solutions eliminate manual tracking, alert staff and automates reporting and compliance.
In an emergency room, the flow of patient service is critical.
Vizza’s system reduces ED wait times
and increases patient satisfaction by eliminating manual data entry, and freeing up your caregivers to do what matters most: provide exemplary patient care.
Clinic WorkflowOur Clinic Workflow solution enable clinics to manage escalating demands for care while providing new tools to communicate with patients and their families. It provides a complete picture of what’s happening throughout your clinic: how long each patient has been waiting, available rooms, where each caregiver is, and where each patient is going next.
StrokeStatWhen a patient has a stroke, timing is of the essence to save the patient’s life and reduce the likelihood of long-term damage. Vizzia’s StrokeStat solution utilizes real-time location systems (RTLS) to show where acute stroke patients are, and what care they need next.
