Sanatorio Finochietto Leads the Way in Infant Security with Hugs® Wi-Fi Infant Protection

Innovative Patient Safety Solution Provides Facility-Wide Security for Newborns

WALTHAM, Mass., and BUENOS AIRES, Argentina, November 6, 2014 — STANLEY Healthcare, a market leading provider of visibility solutions and analytics to advance the quality of care for the healthcare industry, announced today that Sanatorio Finochietto in Buenos Aires has deployed its Hugs Wi-Fi Infant Protection Solution to provide state-of-the-art security for the 3,500 newborn infants the healthcare facility delivers each year.

Opened in October 2013, Sanatorio Finochietto is a leader in deploying innovative, intelligent technology solutions to ensure unparalleled excellence in patient care and safety. To this end, Sanatorio Finochietto engaged a cross-functional team of technology and healthcare experts to identify the best-in-class infant security solution for protecting newborn infants from the threat of abduction. They reviewed a wide range of solutions based on: functionality, scalability, ease-of-use, reliability, reputation, and performance track-record.

In addition to these rigorous selection criteria, Sanatorio Finochietto also sought a Wi-Fi-based solution that would enable its staff to access real-time information about the status of newborns so their safety could be monitored on a continuous basis throughout the entire healthcare facility. This security requirement was particularly important because the facility has an open-door policy, which means its main doors remain unlocked for patients, visitors and staff.

After careful evaluation of the leading infant protection solutions, Sanatorio Finochietto selected STANLEY Healthcare's Hugs Wi-Fi Infant Protection Solution, which leverages the advanced AeroScout® Wi-Fi Real Time Location System (RTLS) platform to extend protection to infants hospital-wide.

"Our goal was to deploy the best infant protection solution available in the marketplace today, in keeping with our vision of being one of the most innovative healthcare organizations in Argentina. To date, we've received excellent feedback about the powerful safeguards associated with STANLEY Healthcare's Hugs Infant Protection Solution," said Luciano Graffi Moltrasio, Project Leader at Sanatorio Finochietto.  "Additionally, we appreciate the fact that the underlying AeroScout® Wi-Fi Real Time Location System (RTLS) platform is scalable, which means we can easily leverage our initial technology investment to add new patient safety applications going forward."

"We're pleased Sanatorio Finochietto joins the 1,400 other hospitals worldwide who've chosen our Hugs Infant Protection solution to safeguard their newborn infants," said Ricardo C. Berrios, Vice President of Emerging Markets and Europe at STANLEY Healthcare. "The hospital-wide protection afforded by the newest generation of our Hugs solution provides an unprecedented level of security and peace of mind for families and caregivers alike."
