Cognosos-Siemens Healthineers Partnership to Tackle Post-COVID Financial Pressures
Earlier this year, Cognosos announced a groundbreaking new partnership with global health technology pioneer Siemens Healthineers. The Cognosos real-time location system (RTLS) will join Siemens Healthineers’ vast portfolio of technology solutions and services available to hospitals and healthcare systems throughout the United States.
“The ability for Cognosos to implement site-wide, room-level visibility—using easily deployed, lightweight infrastructure—enables Siemens to provide truly measurable value while driving efficiency and workflow improvements,” said Ben Sperling, Siemens Healthineers’ Vice President and General Manager of Enterprise Intelligence, in the news release announcing the partnership.
Finding the right hospital RTLS partner
Siemens Healthineers operates at the forefront of technological innovation in health care, with particular strengths in artificial intelligence. The company understands the critical role high-quality data plays in advancing hospitals’ clinical care and optimizing their business operations and workflows.
Many hospitals and healthcare organizations are feeling tremendous financial pressure in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. An RTLS solution can relieve some of those pressures by helping organizations better manage their mobile fleets and reduce overall costs.
Interested in expanding its footprint in the United States, Siemens Healthineers sought a partner whose RTLS technology could help deliver hard-dollar savings for hospitals quickly and reliably. Unfortunately, the company discovered that many legacy RTLS companies were not suitable because they rely on heavy infrastructure and dated technology, leading to a reduction in return on investment.
In Cognosos, Siemens Healthineers found a perfect match. Founded with a similar innovation-focused ethos, Cognosos’ hospital RTLS solution delivers industry-leading accuracy with lightweight hardware.
New opportunities to streamline healthcare operations
By adding Cognosos’ RTLS—which features LocationAI™, a proprietary AI-powered engine—to its product mix, Siemens Healthineers can offer its hospital and healthcare clients powerful tools to radically enhance their asset tracking and optimize their mobile equipment workflows. These organizations will be able to realize clinical, operational, and workforce goals efficiently with minimal disruption to their current operations upon installation, facilitating a fast path to ROI.
“Siemens Healthineers has a rigorous selection process for technology partners,” said Cognosos CEO Braxton Jarratt. “This collaboration will enable hospitals to quickly and easily implement RTLS technology while providing the intelligence needed to accelerate processes and streamline operations within their facilities.”
By partnering with Siemens Healthineers, Cognosos joins one of the world’s leading brands in medical technology. As part of the Siemens Healthineers portfolio, Cognosos will gain a higher profile among the U.S. hospitals and healthcare facilities that currently work with the Germany-based company.
