Whereas the University of Maryland's study denotes the benefits of location-based technology for "staff" -- specifically nurses, Versus focuses on how the workflow benefits extend to staff in all departments, from lab technicians and clinical engineering staff to nurses, physicians and the C-suite.

Above all, Versus keys in on the patient and the many benefits an accurate RTLS brings to timely, effective and safe patient care.
The Versus locating system has gained widespread recognition delivering clinical quality outcomes. In fact, Versus was recently awarded the Frost & Sullivan 2009 Leadership of the Year Award for Healthcare RTLS. Additionally, the American Hospital Association recently cited the Versus locating system as a best practice for managing patient throughput in the Hospitals in Pursuit of Excellence series. Versus is the only RTLS vendor to receive these honors, and with good reason. Versus has documented numerous cases of proven time savings, resulting in greater efficiency for staff and peace of mind for patients, in addition to millions of dollars captured as a result of improved processes. Versus will be showcasing its solutions and client successes at HIMSS, Booth #4651, Hall A.
Beyond stop-loss programs and helping hospitals recoup that estimated $4 million lost to poor communication (at a typical 500-bed facility), Versus helps generate additional revenue through real-time improvements to Key Performance Indicators, effective bed management and lean-process improvement reporting. Versus' infrared and active RFID locating system is exclusively endorsed by the American Hospital Association as part of its Patient Flow Platform, in part due to Versus' ability to affect transformational change to the care delivery network.
