King Hamad University Hospital uses Ekahau Solution to secure prestigious award

According to Heartland News, King Hamad University Hospital (KHUH) has recently been awarded the “Healthcare Deployment of the Year” award for it's Ekahau Real-Time Asset Tracking solution in the Middle East.

Ekahau, the leader in hospital-grade Real Time Location Systems (RTLS), deployed a solution into KHUH which came under intense scrutiny by Computer News Middle East's pan Arabian panel of experts and came up trumps. Unanimously.

King Hamad University Hospital
The 311-bed KHUH was selected from 40 regional hospitals and acknowledged as one of the most technologically advanced hospitals in the Middle East. It uses Ekahau's asset tags and state-of-the-art PDA's to locate assets to within room level accuracy throughout the 66,000m2 facility. This enables complete visibility wherever the Wireless LAN network is installed, allowing staff to spend time with patients rather than searching for wheelchairs and IV pumps.

Integrated Wireless (IW) partner with Ekahau to distribute these solutions Australia-wide. From pre-sales advice through to system maintenance, IW offer 24x7 on-the-ground support to some of Australia's largest hospitals and aged care facilities.

Four-Week-Old Infant Abducted in Sydney

Once again, it becomes clear that we cannot leave the safety of our newborn children to chance. Systems need to be put in place to protect these infants who cannot protect themselves.

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, 26 year-old Justin Groves walked from the Royal Hospital for Women at11.40am on Monday with his four-week-old baby son in his arms. Both parents attended the clinic together that morning, with Mr. Groves absconding on foot with no access to a vehicle or baby supplies.

Police were alerted shortly after and the hunt began with grave fears for the child's safety. The public were notified of Mr Groves appearance and told to keep an eye out for a tattooed man wearing blue jeans and a white T-shirt. This proved successful, with the man taken into custody later that day in Parramatta.

A happy ending to what could have been a tragic scenario. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.

Infant Protection Tag
Luckily there is a solution. Integrated Wireless (IW) provide Infant Protection Systems that are put in place to avoid such harrowing scenarios. Tamper-proof baby tags are worn by the infant, triggering an alarm when passing one of many security grade RFID receivers distributed throughout the ward at every door. This alarm is sent to appropriate personnel to deal with the situation at hand.

IW deploy these systems in large-scale maternity wards APAC wide. For more information including pricing and product specifications, click here!
