Carolinas Healthcare System Deploys RTLS
Carolinas HealthCare System (CHS), the third largest public healthcare system in the United States, has selected Ekahau Inc. (Reston, Va.), a provider of Wi-Fi-based Real Time Location Systems (RTLS), to deploy an asset tracking application that will work across its acute care facilities.
According to the company, CHS, a 20-hospital system based in Charlotte, N.C., expects to track thousands of assets across its campuses, starting with infusion pumps and ventilators.
The solution is server-based and can scale to support thousands of tags on a single server, says Ekahau. The company also says by using patented software-based algorithms to compute the location of tracked objects, it eliminates the need for exciters, choke points, receivers or other proprietary hardware infrastructure.
Renowned leaders in U.S. and North American healthcare gather throughout the year to present important information and share insights at the Healthcare Informatics Health IT Summits.
