UK Healthcare Forum 2018

UK Healthcare Forum 2018

The first UK Healthcare Forum, hosted by Lyngsoe Systems, focused on the benefits realization of tracking assets in the hospital.
Steffen Ørnemark and Henrik Stilling from Aarhus University Hospital (AUH) presented the tracking solution implemented in their new super hospital. With 3,000 readers and over 10,000 items tacked, AUH is the world’s largest RFID installation in a hospital. Steffen and Henrik gave a live demonstration of their solution, displaying to the audience where medical equipment was located in the hospital all the way down to room level along with the current status of the equipment.

Staff from Royal Cornwall Hospital Trust explained how they have started the process of tracking assets in the hospital along with the benefits realized by various stakeholders and departments in the hospital. Royal Cornwall Hospital, which is one of the six Scan4Safety demonstrator sites is especially focusing on how tracking and traceability in their hospital can increase patient safety.
Following the presentations, the staff demonstrated their tracking solution live and the attendees got to see the hospital equipment library with readers registration every time a tagged item enters.

Our Healthcare team, including our newest members, Peter Odell and Andrew James, would like to thank everyone who participated in the event.
