Dell Seton Medical Center Opens State-of-the-Art New Teaching Hospital

Dell Seton Medical Center at the University of Texas recently held the grand opening of its state-of-the-art health care facility which includes the integration of Sonitor’s Real Time Location System (RTLS), Sonitor Sense. Dell Seton, a teaching hospital, opened on May 21, 2017 and is the centerpiece of a new health district in downtown Austin.

As a state-of-the-art health care facility, Dell Seton will leverage Sonitor’s Sense RTLS platform to increase efficiencies for caregivers by helping to manage workflow and capacity, quickly locate and track equipment to ultimately deliver seamless, best-in-class care for patients. To support those goals, Sonitor’s Sense RTLS platform has been installed throughout the facility including in the OR, PACU, ED and in all patient rooms. In addition, Sonitor’s SmartTags will be deployed to doctors, nursing staff and attached on medical equipment such as wheelchairs and IV pumps.

Sonitor’s Sense RTLS will provide actionable location and event-based data that allows the facility to make informed decisions on how to best improve staff work flow and patient flow, as well as manage and maintain assets and inventory.

“This is also about staff satisfaction and the impact it has delivering quality care. At the end of the day what we want out of an RTLS is to make life easier for caregivers, make it easier to track and locate equipment and underscore for patients that they are in a world-class facility,” said Doug Burkott, PMP, FHIMSS and Program Manager at Dell Seton. “Patients may not notice the RTLS location transmitters overhead and the SmartTags that the staff are wearing, but they will experience how smoothly things run and that the staff has more time to pay attention to their needs and be responsive enabling us to make a positive difference in their care.”

“Huge congratulations are in order for the Dell Seton community on the development of such an impressive new, state-of the-art medical facility,” Sonitor Technologies Inc. President and CEO Anne Bugge said. “It has been such a pleasure being part of the effort to bring their patients and community the very latest technology which is so central to quality health care delivery. We look forward to partnering together in the future.”
