Ekahau RTLS works with the hospital's existing Wi-Fi infrastructure with its patented algorithms and its unique ability to use both Wi-Fi and Infrared signals to enable a multitude of clinical applications, from enterprise-wide asset visibility to bed-level patient flow and process monitoring. Hospitals often begin by installing an RTLS system for tracking and managing their assets and subsequently add applications such as staff duress, patient flow and environmental monitoring.  

The Ekahau RTLS system consists of Ekahau's RTLS Controller and Vision software applications that work with Ekahau's broad range Wi-Fi tags and sensors that are designed to be affixed to assets or to be worn by patients and staff members. Ekahau RTLS is capable of also tracking other Wi-Fi enabled devices such as smart pumps, wireless patient monitors, Wi-Fi telephones and mobile RFID and barcode readers without the need to use a tag or client software on these devices.

"We are honored to have been selected by the Premier Healthcare Alliance as a new member," said Tuomo Rutanen EVP of Sales & Marketing for Ekahau. "Our broad solution offering coupled with our collaboration with Premier, provides Premier members an easy way to leverage the benefits and returns that the Ekahau system can generate for all types of healthcare institutions."

Ekahau's contract with Premier starts August 1, 2012 and will be effective for three years.
