PUTNAM — Day Kimball Hospital (DKH) will begin using a new visitor and emergency management system to ensure patient safety and security. MitchellTrac, a visitor and emergency management solution built on Real-Time Location System (RTLS) smartphone technology, will be rolled out at DKH over the next few months.  
MitchellTrac will enable DKH to meet federally mandated regulatory standards for visitor management, security, and emergency communication. This new system will allow DKH to know who is coming into the hospital and the reason for their visit in real-time, adding an extra layer of protection to keep patients, visitors, and staff safe.
Day Kimball Healthcare will mandate all visitors of inpatients and vendors, and encourage all staff and patients, to enroll. Upon arrival to the hospital, patients, visitors and vendors will receive a badge to wear while on Day Kimball Hospital premises.
The system also allows security officials to use what matters most in emergency response: real-time communications to all those on the campus.
Using smartphones that send a signal through an existing Wi-Fi connectivity, active emergency messages can go out to patients, visitors, and first responders, providing important information that’s immediate. Real-time location features can also be activated during an emergency on campus.
“This program will improve the security at Day Kimball Hospital,” said Anne Diamond, president and CEO of Day Kimball Healthcare. “We need to ensure that our patients are receiving the highest quality of care in the safest environment and the new visitor and emergency management system will allow us to further protect and welcome everyone who visits our campus.”
“The safety of our patients, visitors, and staff is a top priority for Day Kimball Healthcare,” said Diamond. “However, when it comes to natural disasters, senseless attacks, and intruders, all hospitals are a vulnerable target.”
