RTLS Leader Sonitor® Technologies to Participate in HIMSS17. Sonitor, the RTLS Gold Standard, showcases live integrations and demonstrations of patient flow, asset management and hand hygiene at booth 623

February 20, 2017

Stamford, CT (February 20, 2017) - Sonitor Technologies Inc., a global leader in indoor positioning technologies, will be exhibiting at the 2017 HIMSS Conference and Exhibition, February 19-23, 2017 in Orlando at booth 623. This annual event brings together over 40,000 global health IT professionals, clinicians and executives.

During the conference, attendees will have the opportunity to experience the accuracy and reliability of Sonitor's Sense™ RTLS platform in real-time through live demonstrations. These live demonstrations, powered by Sonitor's open integration RTLS platform, will showcase use cases such as asset management, patient flow and hand hygiene.

"We look are excited about exhibiting at HIMSS17 and the opportunity to provide live demonstrations of the positive impact our unique, ultrasound-based indoor positioning technology can have hospital-wide to so many healthcare industry leaders, and practitioners," said Anne Bugge, President and CEO of Sonitor Technologies, Inc.

Sonitor is also launching SenseClean™ RTLS Hand Hygiene Technology. This technology integrates seamlessly with GOJO's SMARTLINK™ hand hygiene solutions and is designed to provide actionable data to support hand hygiene practices. By combining Sonitor's proprietary ultrasound technology with low radio frequency (LF) and Sonitor's SmartTags™, Sonitor's SenseClean Hand Hygiene Technology is designed to capture 100% of hand hygiene events as well as accurately track the number of dispenses from each dispensing device. RTLS powered hand hygiene systems are known to track compliance more accurately then direct observance (DO). When interfaced with commercially available RTLS software programs, RTLS can help healthcare facilities more efficiently chart the path of infection and identify vulnerable and affected patients and healthcare workers.

"We know that hand washing can be one of the simplest ways to help prevent the transmission of infection," said Bugge. "We believe our SenseClean Hand Hygiene RTLS Technology can help healthcare facilities by delivering an accurate, reliable and automated way to monitor and measure compliance."

Sonitor has developed the healthcare industry's most accurate and advanced open integration RTLS platform, Sonitor Sense™ for reliable indoor positioning in complex environments. Real-time location systems are used to automatically identify and locate mobile objects or people in real time. Sonitor Sense is designed to efficiently provide industry-leading location accuracy at bay, bed, chair, room, or area level depending on the use case. This fully scalable RTLS can be used for positioning patients, staff and assets in real time, as well as improving workflow, patient flow, and enhancing patient safety and infection control.
