Dr. Raymond Gruby, M.D., F.A.C.S., and Chief Medical Officer at Intelligent InSites, has been invited to present a session on Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) at the North Dakota Chapter of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Spring Conference, held on June 13, 2012, at the Radisson Hotel in Fargo, North Dakota. Session participants will learn how RTLS and RFID solutions improve hospital efficiency and patient satisfaction.
According to Dr. Gruby, who has more than 30 years of hands-on medical experience as an orthopedic surgeon,“Intelligent InSites’ RTLS solution is equivalent to a world-class surgical team assisting you during an operation. When you have a limited amount of time and resources to perform a procedure in a safe and efficacious manner, all of the handoffs need to be done seamlessly and with full confidence – and this is what Intelligent InSites does. It enables your healthcare organization to operate at the highest efficiency level and lets you focus on your patients.”
Intelligent InSites’ RTLS solution is capable of tracking, in real time, the location and status of medical equipment, inventory, patients, and staff to provide real-time visibility into what is happening in the medical environment and converting that data into automated actionable information. With Intelligent InSites’ enterprise-class RTLS business intelligence, healthcare organizations can improve many healthcare processes including asset tracking and inventory management, patient tracking and bed management, and better coordinate hospital lean process improvement initiatives.
The Intelligent InSites RTLS software solution collects real-time location and condition-sensing data from any type of RTLS and RFID technology, including Wi-Fi-based RTLS from AeroScout, Cadi Scientific, CenTrak, and Ekahau, active RFID/IR technology from RF Code, ZigBee-based RTLS from Awarepoint, ultrasound-based RTLS from Sonitor, hybrid RFID/ultrasound technology from TempSys, and a variety of passive RFID technologies, from vendors such as ThingMagic and WaveMark.
