Thinking Outside of the Clock: How Sapling Differentiates their Wireless Clocks as the Ideal Product for the Healthcare System

In today’s society, many people fail to see eye-to-eye on what’s most important. Some people believe financial success lies at the top of the proverbial “importance hierarchy.” Others may attempt to undermine that notion with the claim that spirituality or happiness among friends and family constitute what’s most important. Despite the variety of differing opinions in this day and age, one thing can be cohesively agreed upon; healthcare is certainly high up there in importance. Even if one does not agree with this statement, whatever his or her top priority in life is becomes nullified if he or she passes away from an avoidable error. Regardless of what a person advocates as being most important, the very existence of that person has the possibility of being put in jeopardy if he or she is treated by a disorganized hospital. Maximum efficiency and effectiveness from a hospital’s medical staff is contingent on having a reliable, wireless clock system in place.

To quote Al Pacino in Oliver Stone’s blockbuster sports drama, Any Given Sunday, “life is a game of inches.” The fictional football coach then proceeds with making statements regarding how one inch can make the difference between winning and losing a football game, symbolic to how it also has the potential to decide the outcome of winning or losing in life. A key quote in his speech, in terms of its meaning to this article, is when he makes the comment that moving an inch half a second too slow or too fast decides whether or not a player catches the ball or completes the pass. Listening to the speech in its entirety, it can be argued that the coach is stating that time holds just as much significance as an inch, in life and in football.
Although one lacks the capability of controlling time, having accurate and consistent time displays is easily accomplished with Sapling clocks.

Sapling manufactures its clocks in a rather unique way. Wireless clock systems normally have one or two transmitters, which send the signals to a range dependent on the amount of wattage it uses. These transmitters send the present time to all of the clocks. The issue that occasionally occurs is that a clock or two falls out of the range of the transmitter. The out-of-range clock isn’t receiving the signal, and more than likely displaying an unreliable time. A solution for this issue is purchasing another transmitter, sometimes known as a repeater, to enhance the size of the range. However, Sapling’s innovation of building transmitters within each clock eliminates this unnecessary additional purchase. Inside of each Sapling clock is a repeater. This enables each clock to essentially act as a transmitter to its neighboring clocks. Not only does this save money, it also increases reliability, which is very important in a healthcare institution.

Healthcare organizations are increasing their awareness of reliable time deliverance. Sapling has proven to be a pioneer in this area and has no signs of slowing down in the near future. The “transceiving” wireless clock is just one of many kinds of products that Sapling manufactures. At Sapling, there is a product line for every major industry that has a reliance on time. There may be a handful of situations where knowledge of the time to the exact second is not a top priority. However, for those industries that do rely on being aware that half a second too early or too late can lead to negative results, Sapling is here for you.
