According to an Ekahau press release, Moscow State University Hospital (MSU), the most prestigious healthcare teaching facility in the Russian Federation, has deployed Ekahau RTLS in order to track and monitor medical assets. Ekahau staff badges were also deployed, allowing staff to notify security of their location in an emergency situation.
“MSU was looking for an innovative locating and communication system that would meet our needs as a state of the art teaching hospital” said Sergey Vasuk, Director of Information Technology at MSU. “Upon reviewing different options, Ekahau was chosen because of its unique offering. Ekahau RTLS was easy to install, yet provided the services and performance required.”
Ekahau leveraged of the existing WiFi network in the facility to reduce costs, whilst at the same time ensuring campus-wide coverage with accurate real-time location. With a 300 bed in-patient area that also treats over 400 out-patients daily, the time saved looking for assets and locating staff can now be re-directed to patient care.
