Over the years, SmartSense has evolved to include wearable tags that match infant to their mother and tags for tracking equipment. “Cadi SmartSense solutions help in enhancing patient care, safety, operational efficiency, and facilitate Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation and HIMSS Stage 6/7 Recognition,” adds Dr. Goh. Cadi SmartSense also reduces hospital acquired infections and assists in obtaining ROI regarding cost savings and workforce savings.

More than 1.5 million patients in Singapore and the APAC region have used the RFID patient tags from the SmartSense system. For the infant safety solution, more than 90 percent of Singapore’s maternity and labor wards are using it today. Singapore General Hospital deployed SmartSense Infant Safety solution which ensures that the 'right baby' is brought to the 'right mother' also preventing 'babies' from being taken away from the maternity ward without authorization. SGH also leveraged the power of Cadi SmartSense technologies to optimize and automate patient flow from the point of admission to the point of discharge and reduced the time taken to get a bed from admission by three times.
Samsung Medical Center (SMC) in South Korea is also one among the many companies that reaped the dynamic benefits of Cadi SmartSense technologies. SMC utilized Cadi’s SmartSense system in the year 2013 in its health screening center. This technology instantly reduced the waiting time thus enhancing the patient’s experience. “SMC is the world's first health screening center that uses an active RFID system (Cadi SmartSense) to minimize waiting time and automatically guide the patients to the various screening areas. Cadi SmartSense also helped SMC win the Medical Korea Awards in 2016,” adds Dr. Goh.
Cadi SmartSense system was awarded Microsoft Health Users Group Award in 2010 for its contribution to hospitals in the healthcare space. Keeping in mind the hospital requests and the changing trends in the healthcare space, Cadi is adding new functionalities in Cadi SmartSense system, such as staff-patient contact tracing and hand hygiene compliance monitoring. 'Staff patient contact tracing’ records the episodes of contacts between staff and patient and 'hand hygiene compliance monitoring' which help in reminding the caregivers to fulfill the ‘hand hygiene’ practices. Going ahead, Cadi aims to ex-pand its offices globally spreading its best in class SmartSense technologies to hospitals across the globe.
