Trial at Singapore General Hospital uses wireless sensors to automatically monitor patients’ temperature and locations

Straits Times, news articles (extract), February 28, 2006:

Singapore General Hospital (SGH) is transforming the way doctors and nurses monitor patients’ temperatures and movements — reducing paperwork and the need of labour-intensive records.

In a $100,000 trial that began last Monday, patients in the orthopaedic ward are each tagged with 30mm diameter ThermoSensor disc to allow doctors and nurses to monitor their temperatures and locations anytime and anywhere on a personal digital assistant, a tablet PC or any of the hospital computers.
