Zebra Technologies
'Patient Flow Analytics'

2013 - 2017 | Website

IoT system for time registration and real-time feedback for acute patients.

Patient Flow Analytics is a time registration system for patients in need of emergency care, and gives real-time feedback to hospital staff. Commissioned by and created in collaboration with Zebra Technologies, the system works by way of a smart wristband that is detected by Zebra tablets and handhelds, used in ambulances and in hospitals.

The system started as a pilot used in the Leiden University Medical Center and is in the process of implementation in 9 different hospitals and 3 ambulance organisations in The Netherlands, as well as several hospitals in the U.S. The system is also used for 3-year-long scientific research project, how real-time performance feedback to ambulance & hospital staff can influence call-to-treatment times for acute stroke patients.

I was tasked with the technical support and implementation of the system over 12 different organisations in The Netherlands.

I designed the system to give real-time feedback with the actual time.

The time is displayed in minutes, seconds, and even 100th seconds. I also added the ability to set target times for each checkpoint, after which the bottom color turns orange or red.

On this application, functionality was added such as the ability to set the destination (which results in the destination hospital to be alerted to the coming patient), and the distinction between travel times and the time which is spent 'on scene' with the patient.

I created the visual representations of the system that resulted in additional funding for scientific research.

I designed several dashboards that are displayed on large screens in the hospitals and ambulance organisations.
