Intelligent Hospital joins international Medical Trade Center

The Intelligent Hospital and RFID in Healthcare Consortium (RHCC) have announced an agreement for an integrated showroom in the international Medical Trade Center in Nashville, TN. This one-of-a-kind technology complex (see video) encompassing 80,000 square feet will include: The Intelligent Hospital, The Center of Excellence, and International Technology Pavilions destined to attract healthcare decision makers from around the world.

The Intelligent Hospital will closely replicate the actual environments of a hospital including registration, surgical services, emergency rooms, and critical care units — a complete hospital deployment. In order to demonstrate “best in breed” technology capabilities surrounding the concept of an intelligent hospital, a variety of technologies will be seamlessly integrated to provide automated solutions such as “real-time” patient information delivered to smartphones or tablets from the operating room, intensive care unit, ambulatory/step-down and emergency department rooms, all coordinated through a Central War Room.

Displays will allow healthcare decision makers to see first-hand how information is collected through the use of data capture technologies from diverse patient care environments including remote locations. The Intelligent Hospital will showcase pioneering solutions that incorporate auto-ID/Bar code scanning, RFID, RTLS sensors and wireless technologies. This delivery methodology optimizes and enhances workflow, patient care and safety enabling dynamic monitoring and rapid response to critical issues. A version of this showcase has been a part of the HIMSS tradeshow for the past two years but inside the trade center a much more adaptive and expansive concept will be created.
