Wake Forest Baptist Expands RFID RTLS to Increase Benefits
As part of a five-year initiative, the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center has deployed a real-time location system (RTLS) infrastructure designed to meet the needs of current use cases (asset management, temperature monitoring, blood bank supply monitoring, patient flow, staff duress, staff assistance nurse call, queue management and more), as well as future uses, to include extended patient workflow in the operating room, in the emergency department and across the enterprise. The RTLS infrastructure is deployed in all clinical areas of the fully integrated academic medical facility,, along with all ancillary support function areas that are part of the patient-flow process. This accounts for approximately 1,000 beds and 4 million square feet of RTLS coverage, in more than 8 multi-story buildings on the main campus. Learn how the firm continues to execute against this five-year initiative, and how the use of RTLS technology has moved well beyond tracking mobile medical assets.
