The crisis led to key tech companies like Google, Apple to develop collaborative platforms to trace the spread of Covid-19. This resulted in major datasets to track sick patients, and keep vulnerable demographics like the elderly away from hot-zones. Technologies like smartphone today are capable of tracking air pressure, environmental conditions, monitor temperatures, and help improve hygiene practices like regular hand-washing. The growing danger of infectious diseases, and its gigantic impact on people, and the global economy will be a major boost for the RTLS in healthcare market.

RFID Tags to Make Way for Growth in Inventory Management Systems

RFID tags are common across retail chains and help drive efficient management of inventories for a wide range of products. Such management is crucial for hospitals, as risks of thefts, and potential limitation in use of equipment can be deadly for patients. RFID-driven RTLS technology promises to deliver quick stock checks for hospitals, clinics, and supply rooms. Moreover, these can also help order supplies in advance, maintaining a growing collaboration between admin systems, with real-time information. The systems promise a chain of custody of supply lines to key stakeholders like hospitals, and also enhance the application of testing, diagnostics, and other related services. The prevention of thefts also remains a major challenge for hospitals, as high-value of items necessitate growth of RTLS technology for asset management.

Growing Demand for Data Analysis to Remain Key Driver for Growth

The healthcare sector continues to demand more data-tracking solutions, thanks to advent of horizons of machine learning, and artificial intelligence. ML, and AI promise to bring costs down for hospitals, and also promise improvement in research through more data analysis opportunities. Ann Bugge, president and CEO of Sonitor technologies Inc reported that RTLS technologies helped  deliver a wide range of services including ambulatory, senior living facilities, and orthopedic clinics. The RTLS technology based on ultrasound reduced hospital visits by 25% for elderly patients. The technology helped pave way for larger clinic capacity, and patient access. This is directly related to larger total revenues for hospitals, to drive more growth for players in the RTLS for healthcare industry market.

Emerging Regions to Offer Untapped Opportunities for Growth
