Efficiency vs humanity
While the inner data nerd in me gets all excited at the idea of optimising a person's workflow to make them more efficienct, in a very "customer" focused business like healthcare, it needs to be taken into consideration that while not all of a nurse's duties contribute to the physical rehabilitation of patients, some of the polite bed side manner enquiries or questions can really help people through a tough time. Often times nurses act as part counsellors during rough experiences so it'll be important to see beyond the data when implementing any changes.

Tracking people politely
What's the best way to introduce this kind of personal motion detection tech so it seems useful rather than intrusive? Will be interesting to see if this hospital is able to make the jump from nurses using the tech to getting doctors to accept it.
