As I write this I will be as always asking for your help and advice!
This RTLS Hospital system was implemented with the idea that all employees would have access – this capabilty is easily provided because access is provided via the employee portal.  But it is important to know that this vendor does not have LDAP capabilty – and questionable capability to provide.
They do provide the service to load the initial group of users (6, 000) but when asked for the script that would allow the hospital to use this script for continuing user maintenance.  Why? Because by adding – modification of users could in some way cause a major data
base failure.

RTLS Hospital Implementation February 15, 2013

Well we have provided the complete infrastructure to support the specific RTLS equipment for full coverage of the clinical areas.  We have two slelected Pilot areas that have been completed and have proved that the system does work as needed and expected.  The critical department is the Emergency Department. They need to know exactly where critical equipment is located. The RTLS system provides the location instantly and its specific location.

Along with the Pilot areas we also had to
be sure that the service (help desk) was fully in tune and trained on what this system did and it’s basic functions. We don’t expect many if any calls from end-users because the system is very intuitive.
We will be asking the Pilot areas to approve their implementation formally early next week.

We are committed to finishing the public training this weekend to allow the weekend clinical workers access and knowledge.

Overall the project is under budget and on schedule.

We know from the excitement of the clinical staff that the ability to quickly find a critical device is a major patient safety issue. The risks will identified as critical if the infrastructure has a failure.
We are developing some mitigation processes that I will share in future posts also sample documentation will be available for those who ask.
The failed devices will need to be isolated and reviewed locally as quickly as possible and if possible resolved by the local technical team. A major issue to be addressed is spares – should there be any kept locally or not? Configuration of these devices is complicated.
By the way this hospital in northern Arizona needs 2 PMP poject managers employees not consultant’s.
Contact me if interested

The push is on to have viable documentation that will be used to cover the full and final roll out. RTLS Vendor has a method to monitor the information provided by the infrastructure – we will want to have the hospital technical team to also have this capability to be the first and primary group to validate any infrastructure problems and insure that internal issues and faults are corrected as soon as possible.
