Carolinas HealthCare System (CHS), the third largest public healthcare system in the United States, has selected Ekahau Inc. (Reston, Va.), a provider of Wi-Fi-based Real Time Location Systems (RTLS), to deploy an asset tracking application that will work across its acute care facilities.

According to the company, CHS, a 20-hospital system based in Charlotte, N.C., expects to track thousands of assets across its campuses, starting with infusion pumps and ventilators.

The solution is server-based and can scale to support thousands of tags on a single server, says Ekahau. The company also says by using patented software-based algorithms to compute the location of tracked objects, it eliminates the need for exciters, choke points, receivers or other proprietary hardware infrastructure.
