The ACEP (American College of Emergency Physicians) annually demonstrates innovative technology during the live CODE BLACK simulation which draws hundreds of people from throughout the conference into the exhibit hall.
AirPatrol for Healthcare and AirPass were used throughout the simulation to show the precise location of admitted patients. The locations of those holding AirPass were shown in real time via the AirPatrol dashboard on the large simulation TV screen.
