Summary: Celebration Health, a Florida-based hospital, is using data gained from Real Time Locating System (RTLS) tags—worn by nurses and several of its doctors—to understand demand and improve workflow efficiency. The hospital uses Tableau Software as an analytics tool, and looks forward to using analyses to optimize scheduling and improve its understanding of patient length-of-stay. Says Ashley Simmons, Director of Performance Improvement, "we want to show what did we do to provide the best value for each patient while they were here."
