Penguin Location Services™ – RTLS Whitepaper

How Bluetooth Low Energy technology is driving adoption of Real-Time Location Systems

Published by in Blogs
March 19, 2024

The healthcare industry is undergoing a rapid transformation with the adoption of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology, particularly in Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS). BLE has become pervasive in healthcare settings, seamlessly integrated into various devices such as Wi-Fi access points and mobile medical equipment. This shift from older, heavier infrastructure like infrared, ultrasound, and proprietary RFID technology to standard, off-the-shelf tags and sensors has significantly reduced costs while maintaining desired location accuracy. Penguin Location Services™ (PLS) is spearheading this simplification of BLE 5.1 applications in healthcare, aiming to make RTLS more cost-efficient and accessible.


> In this whitepaper, we delve into the emerging Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technologies within healthcare organizations, aiming to unlock their full potential. We explore how BLE can drive innovation, improve patient outcomes, enhance operational efficiency, and deliver patient-centered care in today’s interconnected healthcare landscape.
