Intelligent InSites, Inc., the leading provider of enterprise real-time location systems (RTLS) software helping hospitals improve patient satisfaction and operational performance while supporting multiple RFID and RTLS technologies, has joined Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) in educating on the value and measurable performance outcomes of health IT during the National Health Information Technology (NHIT) Week, September 12-16, 2011.
With the NHIT Week theme,“One Voice, One Vision: Transforming Health and Care,” Intelligent InSites will hold the Healthcare Executive Webinar on September 15, 2011 from 12:00 pm. to 1:00 pm. CST.
During the webinar, entitled “Going Lean with Rentals – A Proven Way to Cut Costs,” Intelligent InSites will discuss ways to reduce healthcare costs and improve care of patients through the use of innovative technologies and improved healthcare processes, including the InSites RTLS+™ solution. The RTLS+ solution approach combines enterprise-class, hardware-agnostic RTLS software with proven methodologies for implementation, process improvement, and measurable performance outcomes—across individual hospitals and multi-hospital healthcare systems.
“The process of going ‘lean’ in healthcare involves looking at core operational processes, eliminating waste, and shortening the timeline of service events so the activity and focus is all about patient care. Applying lean principles to rental processes enables healthcare providers to identify and eliminate internal inefficiencies, such as not knowing if rental equipment is truly needed, whether it is being used efficiently, or if it is being returned in a timely manner,” said Marcus Ruark, VP of Marketing at Intelligent InSites. “Integrated, enterprise solutions such as the InSites’ RTLS+ solution are instrumental for hospitals to support their lean initiatives, deliver measurable and meaningful performance outcomes, and improve patient satisfaction.”
The event is free and open to healthcare organizations, media representatives, and the public. To register, visit intelligentinsites.com/webinars.
