AeroScout is working with Siemens Healthcare to deploy AeroScout’s real-time location system to help health care organizations improve operations and quality of care.
Most recently Siemens implemented AeroScout’s Temperature Monitoring solution across three of Lifespan’s hospitals in Rhode Island. Using its existing Wi-Fi network, Lifespan is monitoring and managing the temperature of hundreds of refrigerators that contain critical items, such as pharmaceuticals, blood, and research materials.
With automated temperature monitoring and management Lifespan is able to eliminate manual processes that are subject to error and also increases staff efficiency. Lifespan staff previously spent an average of five minutes per refrigerators per day manually checking the temperature of each of its 400 refrigerators.
Now with wireless temperature monitoring, staff can shift their time from administrative to clinical tasks – to focus more of their attention on patient care, while also protecting refrigerated items from out-of-compliance temperature ranges and potential spoilage.
