Ekahau is proud of the strong presence we had at HIMSS’13. Our success at HIMSS would not have been possible without our great customers, engaging partners and wonderful colleagues who all helped to make this Ekahau’s most successful HIMSS Conference to date.
Ekahau’s showcase at HIMSS received a lot traffic and buzz. We showed off our Real-Time Location Solutions using RFID-over-Wi-Fi at our booth on the exhibit floor, in the Intelligent Hospital and by hosting a Tuesday evening happy hour. Ekahau and RTLS were very popular topics among conference attendees.
During HIMSS, we announced the launch of our new Ekahau Mobile Vision™ (EMV) Application for the iPhone that enables on-the-go, Real-Time Location event response. Ekahau also showcased Ekahau Vision™ 2.0, our business intelligence software platform. Ekahau Vision™ 2.0 gives staff and administrators visibility into the location, condition and status of assets, people and workflows, via a web browser.
Ekahau displayed our location-based life safety alert solution at our booth and in the HIMSS Intelligent Hospital Pavilion. Ekahau ran a live demonstration of our life safety alert solution in action. This solution allows for added visibility and two-way communications for staff and patient safety. Our temperature sensing solution was also showcased. Our temperature and humidity sensing solution monitors medicines and patient consumables for to meet Joint Commission standards of patient safety and infection control. Over 4,000 people visited the Intelligent Hospital and took tours to see how we help hospitals improve staff safety and automate temperature monitoring using their existing Wi-Fi network.
Patient safety using real-time location technology was the main topic discussed at the RFID & RTLS in Healthcare Symposium at HIMSS. This presentation clearly established that RTLS is not just about asset tracking and management anymore. Wireless technology is critical to patient safety and RFID and RTLS technologies have the potential to save lives. Ekahau is proud to provide wireless RTLS to our healthcare customers.
We hope to see everyone again next year at the HIMSS’14 Annual Conference and Exhibition in Orlando!
