Summary:

Celebration Health is tracking its nurses as they move throughout the day to help set employee-friendly schedules, cluster patients more effectively and manage costs. Learn how on this week’s podcast.

The Internet of Things IOT Show 2014

We spend a lot of time on the podcast discussing the theoretical benefits of real-time tracking of things or people, but Celebration Health, a hospital just outside of Disney World has actually implemented such a system, using gear from Stanley Healthcare. In this week’s podcast we chat with Ashley Simmons, who is in charge of performance improvement at Celebration Health, about what the organization has done so far and what it has learned in the three years it has been building out a connected hospital.

If you are considering tracking your operations, your people or just using data to help make your company more efficient, the second half of the podcast featuring Simmons is a must listen. And in the first half Kevin Tofel and I try to parse the future of fitness tracking, talk about our experiences with voice recognition on the Toq watch and with the Ubi in my home, and finish up with a debate on where we should keep the home network’s brainpower.

Host: Stacey Higginbotham
Guests: Kevin Tofel and Ashley Simmons, the director of performance improvement at Celebration Health
