In 1995, on average there were 8 medical devices bedside, now there are 13 (and growing). Clinicians waste an average of 21 minutes a shift looking for equipment, and 10-15% of medical supplies expire before they can be used. The growing adoption of real-time-location systems (RTLS) is helping hospitals to reduce costs, streamline processes and improve patient care.

This informative presentation will encompass: explanation of RTS; clinical applications; multiple “go live” success stories; biomedical best practices; and new technologies. Approximately 60 minutes for a professionally prepared PowerPoint presentation with 30 minutes for interactive audience Q&A.
