World Wide Technology Inc (WWT) and AeroScout Inc announce the deployment of a cutting-edge temperature monitoring solution for Providence Health & Services (PH&S), a 27 hospital, 46,000 employee healthcare system operating in the Western US.

The new Wi-Fi temperature monitoring solution takes advantage of facilities’ existing wireless infrastructure to actively monitor, track, and log temperature information, eliminating the need for multiple departments to manually check and log temperatures and cutting implementation costs.

Facilities can use the solution to monitor items such as medications, food, organs, blood bags, vaccines, tissues, and breast milk.

To implement this solution, WWT integrated Cisco’s Unified Wireless Network with AeroScout’s T5 Sensor Tags and its Web-based MobileView software, which provides real-time alerts, on demand and scheduled reports, as well as alert dashboards and hospital map views of refrigeration units.

PH&S implemented the solution at its 390-bed Olympia, Wash facility.
