The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) has deployed AeroScout’s health care based visibility solutions to in effort to improve staff efficiency and patient care.
UPMC St. Margaret Hospital will use the AeroScout RFID solutions to automate temperature monitoring as well as asset tracking and management across most of its U.S. hospitals. Both applications free up a significant amount of time so that staff can focus on caring for patients.
The medical center uses the temperature monitoring solution to automatically and wirelessly monitor the temperature of refrigerators and freezers, helping prevent spoilage of medicines, vaccines and even food. The asset management solution enables UPMC staff to track the location of critical medical equipment throughout its facilities, ensuring that equipment is available when it’s needed, eliminating the need to manually search for items.
In addition, the AeroScout solution can use low frequency and ultrasound for additional use cases such as par level management, and offers integration capabilities to allow other UPMC software providers to utilize location and condition information, for instance, temperature readings, for specific clinical and operational applications.
