The Instituto do Câncer do Estado de São Paulo Octavio Frias de Oliveira (ICESP) in São Paulo, Brazil, will implement Ekahau Inc’s Ekahau RTLS as the underlying real-time staff tracking and bi-directional communications technology for its custom-built SIGAME software. The hospital will utilize the technology to track response time to patients who are in cardiac arrest or when their conditions quickly become unstable.

The SIGAME software integrates with ICESP’s existing VoIP PBX system, enabling the hospital to manage code occurrences and track all health care professionals involved in the process. The RTLS system stores the location and response time information of ICESP staff in a database, which enables the hospital to improve its response time to code occurrences.
