At World of Health IT 2011, Ekahau will showcase how its Wi-Fi-based real
time location system (RTLS) and Wi-Fi site survey tools can deliver a host of
benefits to hospitals and healthcare facilities - from more efficient
operations and infection control to environmental monitoring and enhanced
patient/staff safety. Here's just a sample of what you can expect to see from

- Interactive Demonstrations - See Ekahau RTLS in action for a variety of
healthcare-related applications, including asset tracking, staff safety,
patient tracking and wireless sensing. Some of the latest applications

- Infection Control - Ekahau's Wi-Fi Hand Hygiene Monitoring
lution-for-monitoring-hand-hygiene.html) solution automatically monitors hand
hygiene of employees in the healthcare facilities to prevent the spread of
hospital acquired infections and other transmittable diseases. The prototype
of this solution has been developed conjunction with GOJO, whose
SmartLink(TM) Series Dispensers are equipped with the Ekahau RTLS technology
to track the location and staff interactions with patients and to measure
hand hygiene activity down to the individual caregiver.

- Temperature and Humidity Sensing - Ekahau recently added three new
wireless temperature and humidity sensor tags (
ew-wireless-temperature-and-humidity-sensor-tags.html) that provide an
automated way to measure, monitor and manage areas where changes in the
environment could be harmful. The tags are designed to assist with regulatory
compliance and improve operations in a number of industries, including
healthcare, retail, manufacturing and hospitality.

- Ekahau Site Survey (
www.ekahau.com/products/ekahau-site-survey/overview.html) - This
simple-to-use software tool is designed for professional Wi-Fi (WLAN) network
planning, site surveys and administration. With the addition of Ekahau Mobile
Survey (
nterprise-grade-wi-fi-network-analysis-for-mobile-phones-and-tablets.html) ,
the first enterprise-grade Wi-Fi toolkit designed specifically to operate on
mobile devices, IT managers now have a powerful tool to analyze and monitor
their Wi-Fi networks in real-time via Android smartphones or tablet

- Industry Solution Session - On May 11, from 1:45 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.,
Ekahau will host an industry solution session on Wi-Fi RTLS: How to enable
real time visibility to hospital operations? This session will be led by
