The Nemours Sidekick program aims to help Nemours’ associates perform their work efficiently and effectively
Jacksonville, FL – (January 14, 2021) – Infinite Leap is pleased to name Nemours Children’s Health System as its client for its Real-Time Location Technologies to strengthen operational effectiveness. Launched in August 2020, the Nemours Sidekick program aims to help Nemours’ associates perform their work efficiently and effectively through the use of a Real-Time Location System (RTLS). Nemours Children’s chose to brand their RTLS initiative as “Nemours Sidekick” to highlight that this technology tool is always there for staff when they need it and is helping them make a positive impact on the lives of their patients.
“We worked in partnership with Infinite Leap to develop a multi-phase, multi-year strategy and implementation plan to fully leverage IoT technologies to help our staff to be more efficient, deliver the highest level of safety for our patients, and enable us to personalize their experience while on our campuses,” said Bernie Rice, Enterprise Vice President and Chief Information Officer at Nemours Children’s Health System.
RTLS-enabled Temperature Monitoring, Asset Location, and Asset Management, powered by CenTrak, have been deployed at Nemours Children’s Health flagship hospitals: Nemours Children’s Hospital in Orlando, Florida and Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware.
The RTLS system provides real-time location and status for 6,000 pieces of mobile medical equipment and monitors over 1,000 temperature-controlled units, including low-temperature medical refrigerators. Infinite Leap was responsible for the installation and configuration of the RTLS system and will provide ongoing system maintenance to ensure optimum performance of the RTLS infrastructure. In addition, as part of the Managed Services Agreement, Infinite Leap will also provide RTLS program management guidance to assist Nemours Children’s Health System with generating the greatest sustainable value from the program and executing on the organization’s IoT strategy.
“Working with hospitals is what we do, but it is always a special pleasure when we get to work with those who specialize in caring for children. It’s always meaningful to help healthcare to use IoT to make things more efficient, reduce costs, and improve compliance, but it’s doubly special when we can lend our experience to an organization, such as Nemours Children’s, that raises the bar on caring for their pediatric patients, and spends the effort to make sure their staff has every advantage available for them to do so,” said Mark Rheault, CEO and Founder of Infinite Leap.
