Real Time Location System – Continues March 18, 2013

Posted by Russ Arnett in Projects and Risks, RTLS - Hospital Application.


Wow! It has now become a very different type of process and continuing implementation then what was expected.

The executive sponsor has always wanted and expected to have the future requirements of the hospital to be based on the RTLS infrastructure that has now been installed and verified.

One issue is that he and his group really did not make his thinking available to the other groups that he will really need support for future implementation.

The future use of the RTLS structure will have a major impact on patient safety, staff productivity, cost and profit.

Patient Safety
Tracking where the patient is at all times will work for assuring a smoother flow and use of critical services – X ray and other services that are in high demand can be scheduled to assure maximum use and less down time.  If a patient were to fall or need immediate assistance a call could be generated for the nurses.
