Product Creation Story An emergency department needs patient status and resource location information most when they are busiest but the irony is that this is when the department is least able to manually update computer-based tracking systems. Amelior EDTracker eliminates manual data entry through an interface to real-time locating technologies (IR, RFID, Wi-Fi, USID), an ED workflow rules engine, and interfaces to ADT and ancillary systems.
