Ekahau Inc., the leader in hospital-grade Real-time Location Systems (RTLS) announced today the award of Computer News Middle East's (CNME)
"Healthcare Deployment of the Year" to King Hamad University Hospital
(KHUH) for its real-time location system (RTLS) and asset management
The 311-bed King Hamad University Hospital (KHUH) was selected from 40
regional hospitals, by a jury of experts who unanimously selected KHUH
and also acknowledged the hospital's status as the most technologically
advanced hospital in the Middle East. King Hamad University Hospital
leverages Ekahau's RTLS with Azimuth's Symphony. Symphony integrates
asset locations derived from the Ekahau RTLS location engine, passive
RFID tags, and barcode audits and integrates this location information
to clinical, enterprise resource planning and access control systems
data. Ekahau asset tags and state-of-the-art PDAs with Symphony
minimize data entry time for staff who can quickly analyze location
data whenever and wherever they need it.
With Ekahau's patented RF fingerprinting location algorithms, KHUH uses
one of the most accurate Wi-Fi based location solutions in the world,
enabling visibility into assets and people wherever their standard
Wireless LAN network is installed. The WLAN installed at KHUH, designed
by Azimuth and Ekahau engineers, delivers greater than 2.5m accuracy,
with Room Level Separation throughout the 66,000m(2) facility.
"King Hamad Hospital represents the future of hospitals everywhere
because it demonstrates just how powerful location intelligence can be
in solving complex workflow challenges. We are honored to work with
Azimuth and help the hospital use location to improve its processes in
meaningful and creative new ways," said Mark Norris, CEO of Ekahau.
Major General Sheikh Salman bin Attiyatulla Al Khalifa, Commander and
Chief Medical Officer of King Hamad University Hospital, noted: "Adding
location intelligence to patient data allows our caregivers to make
better decisions and spend more time with patients instead of
paperwork. Azimuth's Symphony minimizes double-entry issues and
unproductive time associated with disparate information systems."
