Real-Time Location System for Hospitals: Improving Facilities for Patients and Staff
Healthcare executives constantly grapple with issues concerning the safety of their facility, the satisfaction of their staff, the quality of care provided to their patients and the costly workflow inefficiencies that impact their bottom line. Oftentimes, information technology (IT) innovation for healthcare is cited as a potential vehicle for improvement. Innovators are constantly working to create technology that can both promote patient safety and support streamlined business operations. What is one of the newest and most effective ways of addressing these challenges? Integrating Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) into hospital processes.
