RTLS is a powerful value driver in healthcare. But, when it comes to your IT systems, you also have a responsibility to ensure patient data is always available at the point of care.
Awarepoint’s ZigBee–based RTLS eliminates threats of data loss and other health IT complications to your Wi-Fi network. System level administration and support plus SaaS-based applications relieve your IT department of many critical, but costly responsibilities.
In today’s challenging healthcare environment, hospital IT staff is overburdened and overworked, preparing complex IT environments to support EMR, CPOE and other critical health IT applications.
While RTLS is a vital tool in creating a hospital IT environment to reduce errors and eliminate delays related to safe, efficient clinical care, interference, interruption and downtime are not an option. If leveraging your hospitals’ Wi-Fi network for RTLS applications, hospital IT executives must give serious consideration to potential patient safety hazards.
