The 311-bed King Hamad University Hospital (KHUH) was selected from forty regional
hospitals, by a jury of experts who unanimously selected KHUH and also acknowledged the
hospital’s status as the most technologically advanced hospital in the Middle East. King
Hamad University Hospital leverages Ekahau’s RTLS with Azimuth’s Symphony. Symphony
integrates asset locations derived from the Ekahau RTLS location engine, passive RFID
tags, and barcode audits and integrates this location information to clinical, enterprise
resource planning and access control systems data. Ekahau asset tags and state-of-the-art
PDAs with Symphony minimize data entry time for staff who can quickly analyze location
data whenever and wherever they need it.

With Ekahau’s patented RF fingerprinting location algorithms, KHUH uses one of the
most accurate Wi-Fi based location solutions in the world, enabling visibility into assets
and people wherever their standard Wireless LAN network is installed. The WLAN installed
at KHUH, designed by Azimuth and Ekahau engineers, delivers greater than 2.5m accuracy,
with Room Level Separation throughout the 66,000m2 facility.

“King Hamad Hospital represents the future of hospitals everywhere because it
demonstrates just how powerful location intelligence can be in solving complex workflow
challenges. We are honored to work with Azimuth and help the hospital use location to
improve its processes in meaningful and creative new ways” said Mark Norris, CEO of
Ekahau.

Major General Sheikh Salman bin Attiyatulla Al Khalifa, Commander and Chief Medical
Officer of King Hamad University Hospital noted “Adding location intelligence to patient
data allows our caregivers to make better decisions and spend more time with patients
instead of paperwork. Azimuth’s Symphony minimizes double-entry issues and unproductive
time associated with disparate information systems.”
