How Entry and Exit Detection Works

Position Health provides medical facility entry and exit tracking to our customers through the use of our mobile software development kit (SDK).  Customers embed our SDK within their user-facing mobile apps, after which our SDK provides geolocation-based event detection and notification.  Position Health Inside is how we describe this integration and customer app augmentation approach.

In the sections that follow, we:

  • Provide background on our technology.

  • Describe our approach to maintaining the privacy of our customers’ users.

  • Walk through the most common customer workflow leveraging our SDK to track medical facility entries and exits.

At Risk Appointment Detection

Problem

Today approximately 5% of scheduled dialysis appointments are missed.  Missed dialysis appointments lead to serious health complications, including hospital admissions.

Solution

Detect when patients are in danger of missing scheduled dialysis appointments and communicate relevant information to provider teams, reducing the number of missed appointments, follow-on complications and costs.
