Summa Health System is one of the largest integrated delivery systems in Ohio and represents more than 2,000 licensed inpatient beds. Outpatient care is extended throughout the area in 9 community health centers.
An overcrowding dilemma at Summa Akron City Hospital created a shortage of beds and hospital staff, meaning EMS squads had to wait to unload patients. Reduce wait times for both EMS squads and patients and streamline ER services.
Barcoding’s RFID cot-tracking solution—RFID tags were affixed to cots, and Barcoding’s CaptureTech CTR3100 RFID Reader was deployed.
Access to critical data from its ER entrance. The ability to treat more patients in less time so EMS squads can move on to the next emergency. More efficient staffing and decreased patient wait times.
At its annual Winter Sports Clinic event, veterans are challenged to overcome perceived limitations through adaptive skiing, sled hockey, and other activities.
The clinic required coordination on multiple fronts, but did not have a way to track where equipment was being used over the duration of the event. Barcoding was brought on board to devise and implement a solution to track the movement and utilization of the hardware inventory.
Barcoding suggested pivoting to a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) solution, which would enable them to obtain detailed location information whenever needed. We collaborated with our partner, Link Labs, to devise custom monitoring software.
The Barcoding team coordinated a smooth deployment. We ensured coverage for nearly twenty different sites, starting with the equipment-heavy IT room and conference room areas, and ending with first-aid stations on the mountain.
