Keeping the overview in the hospital with IoT solutions

Dear Sir or Madam,

In the emergency rooms of hospitals many processes interfere with each other. IoT solutions are available to help maintain an overview in exceptional situations. Real-time localization and visualization offer possibilities for process optimization. How this can prove useful for example in a pandemic situation is the subject of our current Interview.

Stay healthy!
