Oregon Health & Science University
Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) is a public university in Oregon with two associated hospitals, a level 1 trauma center and a children's hospital. It uses MobileView software from Stanley Black and Decker division Stanley Healthcare, integrated with data visualization from Tableau Software, to track the real-time location and status of 4,000 infusion pumps for infusing fluids, medication or nutrients into a patient's circulatory system with a degree of precision that would be unreliable if performed manually. The technology also allows OHSU to analyze historical and current par levels to predict and better plan future par levels, improving inventory allocation and utilization.
