Beacon Sensors

Integrated Beacon Sensors

Each installed beacon verifies the location of both patients and staff while actively using Optonome within any brick and mortar home, facility, hospital, workplace or business. Optonome uses Beacons as an added layer of security and transparency when receiving and providing human services in any location around the world. Beacons give families, health professionals, supervisors, managers, and local governments with permission the ability to access and view sensitive behavioral, financial or protected health information (PHI) based on location inside a home or facility. Each beacon has a Bluetooth® Low Energy Transmitter. It allows Bluetooth devices to broadcast or receive tiny and static pieces of data within short distances inches up to 100 feet.

 

 

When actively using Optonome, smart devices interact with these beacons within distance helping document and verify information related to tasks based on location.

 

  • If there are any incidents, certified investigators can accurately verify whereabouts of staff within the home, tasks completed by staff, regulation requirements documented to reduce allegations of fraud, abuse, and neglect. Support professionals can access, view, be notified or train based on location in a home community or workplace setting.

 

If the healthcare professional forgets to administer medications or complete an activity related to the healthcare of a patient. Optonome beacon sensors can verify the location of the professional as it related to the timely needs of the patient and either prompt to complete or find someone who can complete the task on time.

 

 

For example, during a renovation project, a project manager can manage multiple sites and workers to ensure punch list items are completed on time.
