Innovation in Action: Using IOT to Make Hospitals Safer
If there’s anything the pandemic has taught us, it’s the importance of hospital resources.
Unfortunately, many hospitals have outdated infrastructure for modern-day operations. This can lead to problems with equipment, safety, security and more.
That’s where Cox Prosight comes in.
Prosight is a real-time location system that helps hospitals monitor assets, environments and people across a facility. From tracking the status of hospital equipment to helping patients navigate through a facility to supporting staff safety, Prosight helps streamline healthcare operations.
Prosight, a Cox Communications innovation, is a full stack solution including software, hardware and services from a single provider. It’s designed to help hospitals improve operational efficiency, staff safety, clinical workflows and patient engagement.
