Oregon Health & Science University Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) is a public university in Oregon with two associated hospitals, a level 1 trauma center and a children's hospital. It uses MobileView software from Stanley Black and Decker division Stanley Healthcare, integrated with data visualization from Tableau Software, to track the real-time location and status of 4,000 infusion pumps for infusing fluids, medication or nutrients into a patient's circulatory system with a degree of precision that would be unreliable if performed manually.
