Case Study: Nicklaus Children's Hospital

Breakout Session
Nicklaus Children's Hospital (formerly known as Miami Children's Hospital) has deployed Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons to track assets and some personnel within its emergency department, as well as Near Field Communication (NFC) RFID tags—used with Android-based tablets or smartphones—to conduct daily inventory counts to ensure that 34 crash carts are properly loaded. The technology has helped the medical facility to reduce the amount of time its employees spend inspecting crash carts each day, from several hours to merely a few minutes. Learn how the system enables the locating of wheelchairs, pumps and other equipment throughout the emergency department, and how it might be used in the future.
