Ekahau Asset Tracking Improves Quality of Care in Belfast Health and Social Care Trust

September 27, 2007 - Finland-based Ekahau Inc. said the Royal Victoria site in The Belfast Health and Social Care Trust in Northern Ireland has selected Ekahau's WiFi Real Time Location Systems (RTLS) to keep track of vital equipment.
"After evaluating a number of location solutions, Ekahau RTLS, with its use of our existing WiFi network, accuracy and extensive features, convinced us to put the installation in motion," said Paul Duffy, IT manager at the Royal Hospitals. "We believe it will quickly prove itself by helping the cardiology and radiology departments reduce the cost of monitoring inventory that is required for urgent patient care. It also helps us improve the availability of these devices enhancing the services provided to our patients."
Following a comprehensive WiFi site survey, Ekahau's RTLS will use the hospital’s existing Trapeze Networks wireless infrastructure, which is currently being used for mobile data connectivity and voice applications. Within each floor of the Phase 1 building at The Royal Victoria Hospital, Ekahau RTLS will track such assets as defibrillators, infusion pumps, syringe pumps, balloon pumps, ultrasound scanners and patient monitors, which are both expensive and mission critical medical tools in the cardiology and radiology departments.
Ekahau has currently installed its Ekahau Positioning Engine version 4.0, along with the Ekahau suite of applications, namely Ekahau Tracker and Ekahau Finder. Ekahau has also provided T201 and T301 Tags for attachment to target equipment.
