					                                              Ekahau RTLS – ROI examples

                                                                                                                                          ROI example sheet
                                              in hospital environment
                                              There are tremendous financial and operational benefits to be gained in hos-
                                              pitals from Wi-Fi based RTLS (Real Time Location System) solutions which
                                              allow hospital assets and resources to be managed more efficiently. These
                                              two case examples illustrate the rapid ROI that can be achieved by using
                                              Ekahau RTLS for hospital asset tracking.

                                              CASE 1 – Reduction in the number of existing assets:
                                              A mid size US hospital is using 180 ICU grade ventilators in their daily operation.
                                              Departments are only using on average 100 ventilators full utilized but the hospital here
                                              has purchased 80 extra units, to secure the on-time availability of these devices, due
                                              to maintenance down-time, loss, and continuous misplacement of these units.
                                              Leveraging the existing hospital Wi-Fi network, and the Ekahau RTLS software and
                                              tags for real-time assets tracking, the hospital will improve the ventilator availability
                                              and utilization. They decide to reduce the number of excess ventilators from 80 to
                                              50 units, resulting savings of $325k after reduction. Additional savings are achieved
                                              over time, through reduction of maintenance programs, reduction of the short-term
                                              equipment rental programs and reduced number of lost equipment.
