When one of the country’s top medical schools opened its new 1.6 million-square-foot facility with two 12-story towers last year, the building featured a real-time location system (RTLS) that enables the hospital to monitor the locations of hundreds of nurses, as well as thousands of pumps, wheelchairs and other high-value moving equipment. The facility is also utilizing the RTLS technology to track the movements of approximately 400 carts that are automatically transported via towlines to deliver food from the hospital’s kitchen to patient units located throughout the building. Learn how the firm has leveraged its investment, enabling the hospital to know the locations of its equipment and employees, as well as automated carts transporting food, to improve efficiency and save money.
