Stamford, CT (March 18, 2014) - STAMFORD, Conn., March 18, 2014 - Sonitor Technologies, Inc., the technology leader in Real Time Locating Systems (RTLS) in healthcare, today announced the completion of the installation of its innovative RTLS hardware technology at Sanford Health's new Moorhead clinic, scheduled to open at the end of April, 2014.
The project is a part of the newly announced Sanford's real-time operational intelligence initiative to change care for patients and work flow for staff. The initiative supports Sanford's objectives to decrease operational costs, reduce delays in patient care and increase clinical efficiencies and staffing productivity.
The integrated real-time operational intelligence solution at Sanford consists of Intelligent InSites' operational intelligence software platform, Intelligent InSites' software applications, and RTLS (real-time location system) and sensory hardware from Sonitor Technologies, installed by RFID Global Solution.
After the initial installation at the Moorhead clinic, additional installations will be conducted over the next several months at the Fargo and Sioux Falls Medical Centers. Others will begin in late Spring of this year. Additional locations added in later phases will include Thief River Falls, Bismarck, Bemidji, Worthington, Dickinson, and Aberdeen.
In the clinic setting, the real-time operational intelligence solution will help Sanford deliver "patient-centered care" where patients bypass the waiting room and go to assigned exam rooms where nurses, physicians, and lab technicians come to them versus them making their way around to different service locations. This technology will shift the entire flow of the patient experience in the clinic. In the hospital, initially the focus will be on asset management, temperature monitoring and patient flow. Reports will help Sanford improve patient care, reduce costs, and standardize processes for a consistent and repeatable patient care experience.
"We are extremely excited about being selected by Sanford to enable their real-time operational intelligence initiative," said Anne M. Bugge, Sonitor Technologies' President and Chief Executive Officer for the Americas. "Our innovative Sonitor Sense TM technology combines our renowned High Definition UltrasoundTM technology with Wi-Fi, Low Frequency RF, and other sensory technologies to deliver exceptional accuracy, which is the foundation for delivering precise and real-time data to help staff at all steps of the patient care experience."
