WHAT'S NEW?

At World of Health IT 2011, Ekahau will showcase how its Wi-Fi-based real time location system (RTLS) and Wi-Fi site survey tools can deliver a host of benefits to hospitals and healthcare facilities - from more efficient operations and infection control to environmental monitoring and enhanced patient/staff safety. Here's just a sample of what you can expect to see from Ekahau:

- Interactive Demonstrations - See Ekahau RTLS in action for a variety of healthcare-related applications, including asset tracking, staff safety, patient tracking and wireless sensing. Some of the latest applications include:

- Infection Control - Ekahau's Wi-Fi Hand Hygiene Monitoring (http://www.ekahau.com/news/readallnews/press-releases/263-ekahau-develops-so lution-for-monitoring-hand-hygiene.html) solution automatically monitors hand hygiene of employees in the healthcare facilities to prevent the spread of hospital acquired infections and other transmittable diseases. The prototype of this solution has been developed conjunction with GOJO, whose SmartLink(TM) Series Dispensers are equipped with the Ekahau RTLS technology to track the location and staff interactions with patients and to measure hand hygiene activity down to the individual caregiver.

- Temperature and Humidity Sensing - Ekahau recently added three new wireless temperature and humidity sensor tags ( http://www.ekahau.com/news/readallnews/press-releases/260-ekahau-introduces-n ew-wireless-temperature-and-humidity-sensor-tags.html) that provide an automated way to measure, monitor and manage areas where changes in the environment could be harmful. The tags are designed to assist with regulatory compliance and improve operations in a number of industries, including healthcare, retail, manufacturing and hospitality.
