Hospitals in Australia have a shared problem

Nurses spend around 
30 mins per shift locating hospital equipment. Across 80 staff, that's $1.3m in time wasted per year.

At best — not finding what you need is a minor inconvenience and wasted time your staff will never get back. At it’s worst — staff are unable to respond to an incident like a patient fall requiring specialised equipment like a hover jack.

Bluetooth equipment tracking

Hospitals in Australia trust Spotto to keep track of their equipment and drastically reduce wasted time.

Spotto Bluetooth-based indoor equipment tracking is a powerful technology that helps hospitals keep track of their assets in real-time, using low cost Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons to create a vast network of trackable equipment.

By far the most transformational advantage of Spotto indoor tracking is its ability to quickly locate lost or misplaced assets. By providing real-time location data, hospitals can reduce the time and effort spent searching for assets, freeing up resources for better patient care. In many cases the search time for a piece of equipment is minutes rather upwards of 30 minutes to hours per equipment.

Patient safety and overall quality of care is paramount to any hospital and Spotto can reduce the occurrence of adverse events like patient falls when the correct equipment is located immediately. This is all too familiar to care teams who weren’t able to find the correct bed for an elderly patient, or even bariatric equipment – risking the staff wellbeing too.

Before Spotto

Chances are you've had to 'phone a friend' just to locate a single piece of critical equipment in a different ward or department. It’s inefficient, frustrating and doesn't need to be that way.

How Spotto works

Spotto is like having a key-tracker on every piece of equipment.

Bluetooth tracking beacons attach to your hospital equipment and notify Spotto where they are every few seconds.

Beacon Readers like the Spotto B1 Reader detect the signals from beacons in key zones where you need equipment visibility.

Spotto Search looking for assets in real-time on a phone

Staff can then search for any piece of tracked equipment from a web browser — including touch screen kiosks and mobile phones.

Track everything with Bluetooth tags

Wheelchairs, beds, IV poles, imaging equipment, pumps, calf compressors. If you can tag it, you can track it.

Designed for everyday folks, Spotto indoor equipment tracking is quick to setup, a joy to use and super affordable — usually falling well under procurement limits. We’ve helped hospitals in Australia increase operational efficiency, reduce maintenance costs, and enhance patient safety, making it a critical component of modern healthcare.
