Barry Cobbley September 17, 2012, 3:25 pm At Versus we’ve been providing RTLS solutions to healthcare for more than 20 years, and we’ve never seen more interest in the technology than we do today. Although government mandates for EMRs may have the current lion’s share of the IT budgets, we are seeing a record number of RFPs from all types of facilities, large and small. It’s true that large hospitals like our client The Johns Hopkins Hospital have much to gain from asset and patient tracking, but RTLS is not just about tracking — it’s about making healthcare more efficient through automation. Our clients know the value of RTLS goes beyond asset tracking. They are experiencing real ROI now, and with RTLS are documenting changes in workflow efficiency amidst EMR and ICD-10 implementations. They have successfully automated patient flow, giving providers more time with patients while increasing throughput volumes. They’ve reduced patient wait times and increased patient satisfaction (think HCAHPS). They’ve automated EMRs, relieving skilled clinicians of manual data entry. (In fact, the Versus RTLS and our Epic integration was highlighted as a hot technology at Epic UGM last week.) These are proven solutions that every type of healthcare facility can benefit from. We’d be happy to put you in touch with a wide range of facilities doing very innovative applications and integrations with RTLS — large and small hospitals, outpatient clinics, ambulatory surgery centers, long-term care facilities, and others. I think you’ll find a very different picture of the market than presented here.
