KLAS Report: RFID Still Not Mainstream

Findings from a new report from Orem, Utah-based KLAS suggest that organizations have very limited awareness of the major RTLS vendors and how their products are being used.

The KLAS report, Real-Time Location Systems Perception Study 2009, looks at provider impressions and understanding of RTLS solutions at more than 120 organizations known for their progressive use of healthcare IT. Most notably, only 29 percent of the survey base could list an RTLS vendor by name, and 59 percent were not familiar enough with RTLS offerings to identify the technology platform they would consider using.

The report, which examines the RTLS solution market and compares the strengths and weaknesses of participating vendors, is available online to healthcare providers at a discount rate. To purchase the full report, healthcare providers and vendors can visit
