The caller was almost frantic.
“I need an IV pump …now,” she screamed.
Becky Brown, Director of Information Technology at Unity Point Health (Methodist, Peoria), was certain that there was a pump in the room where the nurse placed the call. After all, it said so on the TeleTracking floor plan screen Becky was looking at, and that system tracks items and people down to precise room level.
“With some of the other systems,” Becky says, “you can get close, but it’s not real time.”
