In the previous installment, I outlined four key questions that any lab or blood bank should address prior to a wireless monitoring deployment. For this installment, I'd like to share the concerns and considerations unique to blood banks:

Identifying and following the major emerging trends in Health IT is one of the chief entertainments at HIMSS.

The Internet of Things (IoT) remains a hot buzz phrase throughout the tech industry. At STANLEY Healthcare, we’ve long supported the IoT in healthcare—giving acute and senior living organizations visibility into the location and status of people and things to drive safety, security and efficiency.

From staff workflow optimization and trend discovery and analysis to enhanced audit readiness and reporting, the potential advantages of continual wireless monitoring are hard to dispute.

But before any lab, blood bank, or blood center implements wireless network-based monitoring, it’s important to work closely with Facilities, IT, and/or Biomedical partners within the organization.

This week is “National Patient Safety Awareness Week”, and the ideal time to reflect on the risks to patients and senior living care residents in healthcare facilities across the country.

It's official!  The 2015 STANLEY Healthcare Customer Conference (SHCC15) is scheduled to take advantage of the brand new JW Marriott in Austin, Texas July 14 – 17.  This will be the 2nd annual STANLEY Healthcare customer conference which combines previous users groups for the AeroScout and Hugs product lines.

January was National Blood Donor Month—making it an ideal time to explore the use of environmental monitoring in blood banks and centers.

Many senior living communities are familiar with the benefits of real-time technology to improve resident safety.

During the winter months, blood is often in short supply. Chalk it up to the holidays, travel schedules, inclement weather and illness. January is an especially challenging time for blood centers—and a drop in donor turnout can put our country’s blood inventory at critically low levels.

That’s why January has been designated National Blood Donor Month.

Whether as a patient, family member, or caregiver, we’ve all heard the bells, beeps and chimes emitted by monitors and other equipment necessary for patient care. As a family member, I have been in awe that nurses can distinguish between a routine sound and a more urgent alert, while maintaining quality care.
