Abstract:

The Valley Hospital proposes to continue and expand their current work to implement an Emergency Department ED Patient and Mobile Equipment Tracking pilot project in an effort to identify key opportunities to drive operational efficiency, improve patient satisfaction, and increase asset utilization. The project will also focus on researching opportunities to leverage the technology in a military setting in collaboration with the Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center TATRC. The proposed research project intends to demonstrate the effectiveness of using middleware to homogenize data produced by varied real time location system RTLS platforms for consumption by a common user interface and application. The project is intended to lead the way to further study of the application throughout the hospital in the inpatient and peri-operative setting.
