waiting rooms

When you’re in pain, the last thing you want to be doing is waiting for an empty room.

Time can be the most valuable resource in a hospital, and researchers are committed to seeing that its spent as efficiently as possible.

GE Healthcare’s AgileTrac patient tracking solution delivers real-time data to reduce the time patients spend in waiting rooms, as well as the time that doctors and nurses spend searching for equipment through infrared light.

Since the technology was implemented in April 2012 at a large hospital in Florida, the time that its patients spend waiting in the emergency department has been reduced by 68% – that’s one step closer to a hospital with no waiting rooms.
