Tue, 18 Dec 2007 00:55:19 +0000

Awarepoint was chosen for asset tracking at University of California San Francisco Medical Center (UCSF). The vendor selection team looked at 6 different systems and selected Awarepoint. The story in Healthcare IT News highlights the technology's use for improving productivity in the surgery department. Here's what jumped out at me: Installation and the tagging of […]

New Infrared RTLS Vendor

Tue, 18 Dec 2007 00:44:39 +0000

Well, new to me anyway. The company is CenTrak, located in Newtown, PA, South Korea and Chennai, India. The company, a consumer electronics company years earlier, launched an active RFID real time location system (RTLS) called TagAlert in 2005. Following the release of TagAlert, the company developed InTouch, an indoor positioning system targeting hospitals, long-term […]

Is Microsoft HealthVault Safe?

Thu, 25 Oct 2007 20:41:43 +0000

Many have criticized HealthVault regarding privacy and security concerns, or perceived limitations of HV as a personal health record (PHR). I suspect that HV is challenged more by the market's perception of Microsoft's long running security issues than with any actual shortcomings of that type in HV. And since HV is not a PHR, but […]

eVent Medical Ventilator Incorporates Web Server

Fri, 19 Oct 2007 17:54:09 +0000

The ventilator market is an interesting one - there are many more vendors than in most other product categories, and greater product differentiation between vendors. This is also a product category where hospitals have, for the most part, been unsuccessful in standardizing on a single vendor. I came across an interesting ventilator vendor the other […]

The Kaiser Family Foundation reports that the latest HealthGrades Hospital Quality in America study shows that Medicare patients in the "highest-ranked U.S. hospitals are 71% less likely to die than those who receive care in the lowest-ranked facilities."

Microsoft HealthVault: Device Connectivity

Tue, 16 Oct 2007 00:06:43 +0000

The HealthVault (HV) beta was launched October 4, 2007. Between the confusion surrounding the launch and work, I've tried to gather some thoughts and get some questions answered. The launch was a classic Microsoft launch: big, dramatic, expensive, and well executed, right down to the goody bags (you had to be there to get one, […]

AT&T Jumps on RTLS Bandwagon

Wed, 26 Sep 2007 22:07:39 +0000

These days phone companies like AT&T are more like network services providers than old time POTS (plain old telephone service) monopolies. Most, if not all of their land-line voice traffic runs over IP networks and the wireless unit is moving to full IP networking for wireless voice when they move to LTE in a few […]
