Ekahau teamed with software developer and manufacturer Conexus Inc. to deliver the winning asset tracking and management solution that has been certified by use in the Army’s medical treatment facilities. The combined solution allows BAMC to track assets using Wi-Fi RTLS tags, passive RFID tags and barcodes, based on asset-specific requirements. BAMC is the first facility to deploy the integrated solution.
Ekahau RTLS has been integrated into Conexus’ Plexus Vision product, which provides a full range of data collection and reporting option for hospitals. Ekahau RTLS enables the medical center to leverage its existing, campuswide Cisco Wi-Fi network for location tracking, without the need for a separate proprietary network or installation of additional infrastructure. The initial system will use Ekahau Wi-Fi tags to track more than 5,000 assets for the hospital’s biomedical engineering group, with plans to expand the system to track as many as 20,000 assets across all SAMMC facilities.
"Government officials are clearly committed to efficient and responsible use of resources, enhanced by automated systems. As they take advantage of significant advances in wireless connectivity, it makes financial and logistical sense to add automated, real-time asset tracking delivered through the existing medical grade 802.11 Wi-Fi networks," said Laker B. Dunford, CEO of Conexus. "Ekahau RTLS is the industry’s top solution for Wi-Fi-based asset tracking, having been deployed in major hospitals around the world. The result of our collaboration is a state-of-the-art, asset management solution with a single, secure, user-interface that can support existing accounting systems to deliver the efficiencies and cost reductions that military hospitals desire."
