Geisinger Health System Expands RTLS to Track Patients and Staff

Breakout Session
Geisinger Health System has expanded its use of a realtime locating system (RTLS) beyond tracking assets to using the technology to track patient and staff interactions. The use of RFID is not new to the facility, which also utilizes the technology to help personnel more easily locate equipment, as well as reduce logistics and inventory costs. Hear how the firm is currently performing patient and staff tagging projects, and how RTLS helps it obtain valuable data, analytics and other important information. Learn how the information can also be used to leverage the same process in workflow analysis at some of its out-patient clinics.
