Improve Efficiency, Safety, & the Patient Experience with Location Technology

Wait times are a problem for patients and cancer programs alike. Implementing real-time location system (RTLS) technology enabled Eastern Maine Medical Center to improve the patient experience by decreasing wait times, expediting patient visits, and streamlining the chemotherapy and pharmacy process. Programmatic benefits include the ability to monitor room and chair availability, record benchmarking data to enhance Lean processes, and improve staff efficiency.
