Efficiently tracking the location, status and movement of mobile medical equipment was an important value driver for the UCSF Medical Center. The hospital's real-time location system (RTLS) project was initially driven by regulatory pressures to keep its hallways clear of obstructions. With equipment storage located offsite, nearly two miles away, the staff was reluctant to move items to that site without an equipment-tracking solution in place. Hear how UCSF originally installed an RTLS in its operating room in 2007, starting with 1,000 OR-owned assets, and how it has since expanded the deployment to multiple campuses.
