Miami-based Jackson Health System has selected San Diego’s Awarepoint Corp. to help keep an eye on its assets with the enterprise-wide installation of a real-time location awareness solution.

By actively tracking 12,000 medical equipment assets throughout the hospital’s 3.9 million-sq.-ft.-campus, the company says the hospital will have immediate information regarding location, status and movement of mobile assets by tapping by into its “plug and track” network.

According to the company, the contract initially calls for 11,750 tracking tags plus 250 temperature monitoring tags, and provides expansion for an additional 8,000 asset tags. Awarepoint coverage encompasses 91 floors and 17 buildings and extends from several hospital wings and buildings. The deployment provides location accuracy of an average 1.5 meters or better throughout the entire enterprise, the company touts, which includes in-room accuracy as well as defined area accuracy, such as in hallways, open areas and closed carts.

Jackson is an integrated healthcare delivery system that includes Jackson Memorial Hospital, a tertiary teaching hospital with more than 1,500 licensed beds. In conjunction with the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine faculty, Jackson Memorial provides patient services, educational programs, a clinical setting for research activities, and a number of health-related community services.
