Based on AiRISTA Flow's proprietary RFID-over-Wi-Fi™ technology, AiRISTA Flow RTLS gives responders the data they need to quickly locate at-risk caregivers — something that can be invaluable in the event of a personal safety alarm being activated on an Ascom Myco 3 or i63.
At the end of 2014 the magazine Scientific American reported that an “Epidemic of violence against healthcare workers plagues hospitals” in the US.1 Unfortunately, it’s a growing and global challenge.
The World Health Organization reports that “health workers are at high risk of violence all over the world”, and says that “between 8% and 38% of health workers suffer physical violence at some point in their careers”.2
A smartphone purpose-built for healthcare with locating functionality can help mitigate this serious problem.
The AiRISTA Flow and Ascom solutions are supported in North America, Europe and Australia.
