MedCity News reports that PeaceHealth, a 10-hospital system in the Pacific Northwest, continues to benefit from its real-time location system (RTLS).

In 2006, the Vancouver, Wash.-based not-for-profit  system PeaceHealth started with an RTLS pilot in the emergency department of its Eugene, Ore.,  hospital to improve department efficiency. PeaceHealth later turned the Eugene facility into a specialty hospital, but replicated the RTLS setup in a replacement full-service hospital that opened in 2008.

“With the help of software from Versus Technology … PeaceHealth has since integrated the RTLS with its admit-discharge-transfer system and created a dashboard to track patient, staff and equipment movement throughout the ED and beyond. The dashboard displays pertinent patient data, including chief complaints and status of laboratory and imaging orders,” ┬áMedCity reported.

“And the health system is now starting to integrate the RTLS with its Epic Systems electronic health record”
