Research and Markets: Global Healthcare Location Based Services Market Report 2014-2018

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global LBS Market in the Healthcare Industry 2014-2018" report to their offering.

Hospitals face a lot of challenges in the management of hospital garments such as operating gowns, robes, trousers, and patient clothing. This is because it is difficult to track the movement of garments from staff members to the laundry, then to the storage cabinets and back to the wards again. Since there are various types of garments being used in hospitals, the chances of misplacement or loss are high. Moreover, the time required to trace the garments is very high and can cause a lag in workflow processes. Hence, RFID-based LBS applications are used to track several garments. In addition, during emergencies, the tracking of garments reduces the buffer time taken by hospital staff to handle emergency situations. Thus, the increasing usage of LBS in hospital management is an emerging trend in the market.

According to the report, one of the main drivers in this market is the increasing requirement for RTLS to track people in hospitals. Most hospitals across the globe are struggling to provide high-quality health services to their patients due to lack of efficient patient-staff management systems. Moreover, most hospitals do not have an organized healthcare service workflow for real-time patient treatment tracking and real-time staff management. However, in recent years, hospitals across the globe are adopting RTLS tags to search, locate, track, and monitor the presence and movement of patients, doctors, and people providing healthcare services in hospital premises.
