PNeUS Brings Improved Safety and Security to Nursing Homes Using Abeeway Tracking Solutions

Press Release – Paris, France & San Benedetto del Tronto, Italy – 27th February 2023

PNeUS Company srl, is an Italian company focused on promoting digitization and automation in the healthcare and other sectors using innovative technologies, teamed up with Abeeway, a subsidiary of Actility specialized in low-power geolocation, to develop a project that aims to test  an IoT-based digital transformation model in the healthcare industry to support risk management and prevention in care and assistance processes.

The project aims improving monitoring of patients, assets, and having more effective communication amongst coworkers, thanks to the implementation of Abeeway tracking solutions. PNeUS set up a full-scale demonstration laboratory at the Villa Anna private nursing home in San Benedetto del Tronto in Italy.

Implementing cutting-edge Abeeway IoT tracking technology

Over 250 devices were deployed during trail phase and were distributed throughout the building. The introduction of the Abeeway Micro Tracker, a compact and user-friendly device, has replaced the use of smartphones, which were discouraged due to hygiene concerns. The implementation of this device has scientifically decreased the time required to help and the impact of accidents and adverse events on patients and facility operations.

With the “Find-me” feature, medical staff can quickly locate patients who need to be monitored while having freedom of movement, in case they find themselves in a critical state. By obtaining the patient’s consent, the nurses can locate them at any time within the facility using this device.

In general, nursing staff spends a significant amount of time in their daily work searching for medical equipment. Because of the use of Abeeway’s devices, the staff can efficiently find the assets and increase productivity, ultimately lowering the establishment’s costs.

The asset tracking feature of Abeeway Compact Tracker made it simple to locate medical equipment with just a few clicks on the dashboard, which is especially useful in emergency situations. The solution’s “geo-fencing” feature alerts personnel if the medical equipment leaves a predetermined area, lowering the risk of theft.

Abeeway long-autonomy devices allow continuous usage for months and years thanks to LoRaWAN® connectivity. The devices work both indoors and outdoors thanks to their multi-technology geolocation system, integrating GPS, Abeeway’s patented Low-Power GPS, WiFi Sniffing, Bluetooth Low Energy & Bluetooth LE Beaconing feature for precise indoor tracking.

Endless possibilities thanks to LoRaWAN®

When using Abeeway trackers to track people and assets, LoRaWAN® is a very effective connectivity solution. LoRaWAN® is perfect for IoT applications since it has long-range and low-power characteristics. By enabling seamless connectivity for the IoT devices, this technology makes it possible to continuously monitor in real-time the whereabouts and condition of both people and assets.

Additionally, LoRaWAN® offers strong security capabilities for applications like healthcare where data security and privacy are crucial. A cost-effective and long-lasting solution, LoRaWAN® enables Abeeway trackers to be installed in big facilities without the need for a complicated network infrastructure. The low-power consumption of LoRaWAN® also ensures that the trackers have a long battery life, reducing the need for frequent maintenance. All in all, LoRaWAN® is an excellent choice for businesses looking to implement a reliable and secure tracking system for people and assets.
