Improving Patient Care and Efficiency
Hospitals are deploying sophisticated equipment, complete with sensors, software, pervasive networking and mobile components, in the quest to improve patient care and efficiency. Yet the reality is that most medical equipment is not connected, leading to administrative and patient care inefficiencies, cost overruns, medical errors, longer recovery times and even death. Today, medical errors account for hundreds of thousands of preventable deaths annually.
