Real Time Location Systems (RTLS) Leader Sonitor® Technologies to partner with Hospital IT and Oslo Medtech to Host IT Solutions Symposium in Norway


Sonitor Technologies, a global leader in real-time indoor positioning technologies, today announced that it will sponsor and participate in an international symposium on building sustainable public healthcare systems of the future. The symposium, hosted by Oslo Medtech (, a member organization that helps support the development of innovative medical technology and eHealth products and services for the Norwegian and global healthcare markets, will be held on May 24, 2016 at the Oslo Medtech premises in Gaustadalléen 21, 0349 Oslo, in the Forum meeting room.

Globally, healthcare systems face an array of increasing challenges, including meeting the needs of an aging global population and growing number of consumers requiring acute and chronic care. Climbing medical costs are also putting pressure on global healthcare systems, ultimately challenging them to provide sustainable levels of care. There is a growing understanding in the US healthcare market that technologies such as Sonitor’s real-time location systems (RTLS) can play a significant role in delivering operational intelligence. This insight can drive efficiencies that improve staff workflow, patient throughput, resource and asset management, and patient safety, all helping to address healthcare challenges today. During this symposium, representatives from European and United States healthcare facilities will share their knowledge and experience in applying innovative health IT solutions such as RTLS to deliver world-class and cost-effective care.

“There are a myriad of health IT applications making an impact on the healthcare system today, and RTLS is certainly one of them both clinically and operationally,” said Arne Øyen, Group President and CEO of Sonitor Technologies. “With a reliable, highly accurate RTLS hardware backbone, hospitals, long term care facilities, and their patients worldwide are benefitting from a growing list of highly productive applications which run on it including asset management, patient and staff workflow, duress and safety, and environmental monitoring to name a few. In this symposium we’ll discuss how RTLS is being used today and how it will enable healthcare system of the future to function efficiently to best serve its patients and stakeholders.”

Success of these applications requires strong integration between the RTLS and best-in-breed software solutions. Hospital IT, led by CEO Flemming Hegerstrøm, delivers a software platform that integrates with Sonitor’s open integration RTLS to automate and streamline processes. This workflow optimization and process improvement ultimately helps European healthcare facilities accelerate on-boarding of new staff, increase productivity and efficiency and free caregiver time to focus on delivering better, faster care. Hospital IT’s SmartSolution platform is seamlessly integrated with leading electronic medical records systems for long term healthcare and hospital facilities.

“We are very excited to welcome such esteemed hospitals and users to our forum, and to hear more about how the innovative technology of our member companies Sonitor and Hospital IT improve operational efficiency, quality and patient experience in US hospitals and elsewhere,” said Kathrine Myhre, CEO of Oslo Medtech. “Part of innovating is sharing ideas and experiences, between US and Norwegian hospitals, companies and users, and we are so pleased to provide a platform for this.”
