Preventable hospital errors result in the deaths of over 50,000 people every year in the U.S. Many of these errors are due in part to the lack of communication between the many devices dedicated to patient treatment, drug delivery and patient monitoring. Initiatives such as the Integrated Clinical Environment (ICE) and technologies such as DDS can be used to build smart connected systems with the potential to greatly improve patient safety. This whitepaper from RTI (Real Time Innovations) describes how IIoT technology can make the difference.
