Six Ways Wireless Technology Is Transforming Health Care

  • Six Ways Wireless Technology Is Transforming Health Care-

    Nurses are vitally important to hospital operations and patient care, but they are often under stress and extremely busy. To better understand and improve the workflow of nursing staff, Florida Hospital’s Celebration Health equips nurse ID badges with a radio frequency identification (RFID) tag that works with the hospital’s Wi-Fi network. The tags track the movement of nurses throughout their shift. The data is captured and analyzed, providing valuable insights Celebration Health can use to make improvements to processes.

Hospitals are extremely complex and dynamic organizations. Doctors, clinicians, staff, patients and equipment are constantly on the move; hospitals must comply with a range of strict regulations and there are periods of high stress and life-and-death decisions. At the same time, there’s constant pressure on hospital administrators to lower costs while continuing to improve the level of patient care and satisfaction.

In this environment, hospitals are increasingly turning to wireless technologies to operate more efficiently, support patient care and improve the patient experience. Here are some examples, identified by Stanley Healthcare, of how they’re doing this.
