Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/79slmw/global_lbs_market)
has announced the addition of the "Global
LBS Market in the Healthcare Industry 2014-2018" report to
The analysts forecast the Global LBS market in the Healthcare industry
to grow at a CAGR of 29.36 percent over the period 2013-2018. One of the
key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing
requirement of real-time location-based people tracking in hospitals.
The Global LBS market in the Healthcare industry has also been
witnessing the increasing use of LBS in hospital garment management.
However, the lack of reliability and accuracy of navigation information
could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
The key vendors dominating this market space are AeroScout Inc. (Stanley
Healthcare Solutions), Awarepoint Corp., Ekhau Inc., GE Healthcare, and
Hewlett-Packard (News - Alert) Enterprise Services LLC.
Other vendors mentioned in the report are Cisco Networks, Elpas (Visonic

Healthcare, Sonitor Technologies, ThingMagic (Trimble (News - Alert) Navigation Ltd.),
Versus Technology, Inc., and Zebra Technologies Corporation.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: Hospitals face
a lot of challenges in the management of hospital garments such as
operating gowns, robes, trousers, and patient clothing. This is because
it is difficult to track the movement of garments from staff members to
the laundry, then to the storage cabinets and back to the wards again.
Since there are various types of garment being used in hospitals, the
chances of misplacement or loss are high. Moreover, the time required to
trace the garments is very high and can cause a lag in workflow
processes. Hence, RFID-based LBS applications are used to track several
garments. In addition, during emergencies, the tracking of garments
reduces the buffer time taken by hospital staff to handle emergency
situations. Thus, the increasing usage of LBS in hospital management is
an emerging trend in the market.
According to the report, one of the main drivers in this market is the
increasing requirement for RTLS to track people in hospitals. Most

services to their patients due to lack of efficient patient-staff
