Modern technology is key when efficiently improving hospital processes. Staff at The Regional Hospital of Horsens experience having more time for patient care after implementing the RTLS solution from Cetrea and Sonitor.
"The tracking works really well. We experience a lot less interruptions and less confusion in our daily work since the implementation of the system," says the Chief Physician Ove Gaardboe at the Regional Hospital of Horsens.
The treatment of each patient involves a number of doctors and nurses who all need to be coordinated and kept up to date. With a quick look at strategically placed, large touch screen displays, staff can now locate each other without having to call around, disturbing others unnecessarily, in their search.
The locating solution is installed in work related rooms in the emergency ward. To protect the staff's right to privacy, rooms that are not relevant are not covered and the location data is not stored.
