Kaiser Permanente

Kaiser Permanente is an integrated managed healthcare consortium, based in Oakland, California.  Kaiser Permanente is made up of three distinct but interdependent groups of entities: the Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc. Kaiser Foundation Hospitals; and the regional Permanente Medical Groups.  Kaiser Permanente operates in eight states and is the largest managed care organization in the US with 39 hospitals and 700 medical offices.



The Real Time Location Services (RTLS) solution at Kaiser Permanente supports mission critical systems in the healthcare environment.  Temperature monitoring and asset tracking play crucial roles to ensure quality care is maintained.  Kaiser Permanente required a validated design that would support the new RTLS solutions being used.



Understanding the healthcare environment, business use cases, and technical requirements from stakeholders, we delivered a validated, secure, redundant and scalable RTLS design that met mission critical criteria and requirements.  We worked with infrastructure and solution vendors directly, tested the solution in the lab and a production pilot site, and documented the design in detail.  


Our team designed, tested, and validated a RTLS solution to work with the wireless infrastructure at Kaiser Permanente from 2 major wireless vendors to support mission critical RTLS services.  Kaiser Permanente can now deploy the RTLS solution that leverages the healthcare wireless networks to track assets, monitor temperature of medication and vaccines, and improve operational efficiencies and patient care.
