Coordinating care for a growing oncology population is no easy task. Leading cancer centers find that RTLS technology can play a significant role in streamlining the patient experience.

 

Empower your staff to focus on patient care, not logistics.

  • Identify exposure to contagions with automated contact tracing.
  • Improve staff communication and care coordination
  • Respond proactively to scheduling changes
  • Keep patient visits running smoothly
