The healthcare system is being stressed by multiple factors; the Affordable Care Act reduces patient reimbursement and imposes penalties, demographics, limited supply of medical professionals, high cost of expanding facility capacity and increasing patient demand. Hospitals and ambulatory medical facilities need to do more with less.
MetriHeal develops WiFi real time location system(RTLS) technology which provides hospitals and ambulatory facilities a simple to self-install workflow management tool, communication tool and asset-tracking to improve efficiency, quality of health care and patient satisfaction.
This RTLS product may significantly disrupt the rate of adoption of RTLS in the healthcare sector by reducing the cost of ownership by as much as 8X, and removing installation barriers. The ROI for healthcare providers from the resulting efficiency increase and quality improvements have already been proven by past RTLS deployments in this sector.
