Healthcare System Uses RTLS to Track Assets, People

Establishing a surefire way to track vital business assets can not only help an organization improve inventory control, reduce labor and asset costs, and comply with customer mandates--in some instances, quite literally, it can be a matter of life and death. For example, picture a hospital where a patient loses the ability to breathe on their own and needs to be placed on a ventilator to survive. That hospital not only needs to ensure it can quickly locate a ventilator for the patient in need, but it also needs to ensure that this ventilator has been properly serviced to ensure it doesn't malfunction during use, compromising the patient's condition. This scenario is a challenge hospitals all over the world face on a daily basis, and one that Carolinas HealthCare System has recently chosen to address by implementing a Wi-Fi-based RTLS.
