Eclipsys and PanGo Deliver RFID Solutions to Healthcare Organizations

    Online News published in DMReview.com
February 17, 2006

Eclipsys Corporation, The Outcomes Company and PanGo Networks announced a joint partnership to help hospitals and other healthcare organizations expand the value of existing wireless and mobile networks using active radio frequency identification (RFID) technology. The companies also announced that El Camino Hospital, Mountain View, CA, is their first joint customer under the partnership.

As a PanGo Certified Solutions Partner, Eclipsys will re-sell, deploy and support PanGo's leading asset-tracking solution. This enables hospital staff to track hundreds of mobile biomedical assets, from wheelchairs to IV pumps to telemetry equipment, instantly identifying available resources and routing them to where they're needed most. In addition, the biomedical engineering department can quickly locate specific equipment for routine equipment maintenance, supporting compliance with stringent Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) regulations.

PanGo's turnkey 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 and custom healthcare and business applications. 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 proprietary hardware and wiring.

The IT leadership at El Camino Hospital, a full-service acute care facility, is recognized throughout the industry for a vision that consistently sets new standards in leveraging innovation. The team turned to long-time information solutions partner Eclipsys for new ways to boost response time and improve efficiency using El Camino Hospital's existing Wi-Fi network. A wireless networking team from Eclipsys will lead the implementation of PanGo's active-RFID technology, scheduled to begin in March.

"Our mission is to deliver the highest quality of patient care, cost- effectively," said Mark Zielazinski, chief executive officer of El Camino Hospital. "As the El Camino Hospital campus grows, our technology partners will play an important role in helping ensure that staff efficiency and patient care don't skip a beat."
