PanGo Networks announced that it has contracted with Denver Health to provide real-time visibility into the precise location of critical clinical equipment in the new Women's and Children's Pavilion, scheduled to open in August.
Denver Health, home to the Rocky Mountain region's academic Level I trauma center and the 398-licensed bed safety net hospital for the city and county of Denver, will use the PanGo Locator application to track more than 1,000 biomedical devices.
"In a large, fast-paced environment like ours, biomedical equipment is constantly being moved throughout the hospital to care for patients," said Jeff Pelot, chief technology officer, Denver Health. "The ability to quickly locate, manage and maintain equipment is paramount to excellent patient care."
PanGo's complete location management solution includes an intuitive end-user application for asset monitoring and reporting, true Wi-Fi active RFID tags and a location management platform that integrates location data into third-party or custom healthcare and business applications. According to the company, PanGo Locator is the only active RFID solution available today that leverages any Wi-Fi access point infrastructure as its reader network, eliminating the need for a separate and costly overlay of hardware, wiring and associated labor.
