Repp introduces real-time tracker for healthcare

Colorado-based Repp Health has released Repp Eo, a real time tracking system for the healthcare market.
 
Repp Eo provides precise x-y coordinates similar to GPS, but is said to be easier to deploy and a fraction of the cost than other tracking devices. It has a familiar map interface with a blue dot experience.
 
"It's time for healthcare to synchronise and accelerate," said David Sachs, CEO and co-founder of Repp Health. “Increasing the efficiency and utilisation of assets and people will improve patient satisfaction and drive costs down.”
 
Real time location intelligence on patients, assets and staff can help hospitals move patients through the care process more efficiently, visually augment the move towards hospital command and control centres, and help healthcare organisations prepare for value-based reimbursement. Putting the right people in the right place at the right time can lead to more efficient delivery of care.
 
To date, tracking in healthcare has been difficult to deploy, expensive and lacking accuracy. Repp Eo uses ultra-wideband proprietary technology that combines a limited on-premise footprint with secure cloud-based data processing to create a level of accuracy previously unavailable to indoor tracking.
 
Repp Health was co-founded in 2018 by Michael Sachs, who's prior businesses have included Sachs Group, now part of IBM Watson, Aetna's BSwift and SG2/Vizient.
