Sanford Health Launching $30M Tracking System

February 27, 2014, 6:36 AM

Sanford Health Launching $30M Tracking System
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Dakotas-based Sanford Health is spending $30 million on a system to track every patient, employee and piece of hospital equipment in its system.

Patient wristbands and employee badges soon will include a chip that will communicate with the tracking system by sensors mounted on walls in rooms and hallways. Equipment such as gurneys, wheelchairs, surgical devices and intravenous pumps will be tagged for instant tracking.

The software is from Intelligent InSites, a Fargo, N.D., business that's designed tracking systems for 70 customers in 150 locations.

Sanford will phase in the technology within five years, starting with a clinic in Moorhead, Minn. It eventually will cover Sanford's 126-city, nine-state network.

Sanford is based in Fargo and Sioux Falls, S.D. It bills itself as the nation's largest not-for-profit rural health care provider.
