Masaryk Memorial Cancer Institute Reduces Losses and Administrative Overhead With Ekahau RTLS
Date:11/16/2011

RESTON, Virginia and BRNO, Czech Republic, November 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

Masaryk Memorial Cancer Institute (MMCI) provides complete diagnostics, treatment, and preventive care in oncology for both Czech citizens and international patients. MMCI is the only health care provider in the Czech Republic that is a member of the OECI (Organisation of European Cancer Institutes).

MMCI has implemented the Ekahau Real Time Location System (RTLS) integrated with their Cisco Wireless LAN (WLAN) for optimizing patient care and tracking assets across its two pavilions. The same Cisco WLAN that supports RTLS for tracking patients and assets, such as infusion pumps, wheelchairs and defibrillators, is also used to access patient records and care information at the patient bedside. Unis Computers, a premiere partner of both Cisco and Ekahau, implemented the system at MMCI.

The Ekahau RTLS system is deployed over a Cisco Medical Grade Network (MGN) which allows hospital staff to not only access vital patient information electronically but to view images, video and other medical information anywhere within the footprint of the network. Patients are issued Ekahau wearable tags that track them throughout the WLAN covered premises, making it easy for caregivers to immediately locate them in case of an emergency or in time for a procedure.  The tags also have a call button that the patient can press in case of an emergency. The system alerts staff if patients try to wander into areas they are not supposed to be in.

By tagging the mobile patient care equipment, MMCI has been able to reduce equipment losses from theft and accidental misplacement and has b
