ATLANTA – January 13, 2022 – Cox Communications today announced Cox Prosight, a real-time location services (RTLS) healthcare platform, received the Enterprise IoT Platform Innovation Award in this year’s IoT Breakthrough Awards program. This recognition highlights the company’s efforts to modernize hospital operations through the power of IoT.
Hospital environments are known for being fast paced, with countless moving parts throughout the day. Now, as the pandemic has further complicated operations, its critical for clinical staff to find the right equipment, ensure environmental continuity, keep staff safe and enable guests to easily navigate the property. By tackling each of these common pain points in one extensible, secure solution, Cox Prosight streamlines these day-to-day operations and provides powerful tools to make healthcare workers’ lives easier and more effective.
Our mission with Cox Prosight is to empower hospitals to focus on what matters most – caring for patients,” said Sujata Gosalia, executive vice president and chief strategy officer, Cox Communications. “The fully-integrated platform provides the highest level of operational insight that will create a complete smart hospital experience for both staff and patients.”
Powered by Cox’s IoT platform, Cox Prosight offers advanced connected IoT capabilities to track and monitor assets, environments, and people across a hospital facility. The full stack platform seamlessly integrates with other healthcare IT solutions to allow hospital administrators and staff to gain real-time visibility and instant notifications of important changes. Guests also enjoy an enhanced experience with its wayfinding solution that delivers real-time, turn-by-turn navigation – also relieving additional pressure on hospital staff.
“Real-time location solutions technology have traditionally been built on outdated, legacy technology with proprietary, single-use product architecture, which is not only costly but also complicated to deploy and maintain,” said James Johnson, managing director at IoT Breakthrough. “Cox Prosight represents a true IoT ‘breakthrough’ for RTLS, breaking down those barriers by immediate value and ROI for hospitals and healthcare systems.”
In its sixth year, the IoT Breakthrough Awards honors the hard work and success of IoT companies, products, and technologies. This year’s program attracted more than 3,850 nominations from companies all over the world.
