Elisa deploys location tracking system for Helsinki hospital

Friday 15 January 2016 | 12:16 CET | News
Finnish operator Elisa announced that it deployed an indoor positioning system for the Helsinki and Uusimaa Hospital District (HUS) for real-time monitoring of medical devices in its hospitals. The location information helps the hospitals better allocate resources and improve patient safety. The low-power wireless network tracks the location of around 3,000 devices to start, including medical devices like defibrillators as well as patient beds. The system also allows the hospitals to keep track of maintenance for equipment.
