New York-Presbyterian Hospital launched Redwood City, Calif.-based AeroScout’s Wi-Fi solution to track thousands of infusion pumps and other high-value equipment across four of its distributed campuses in New York City.

The solution uses AeroScout’s Wi-Fi-based Active RFID tags to track the location and maintenance status of Sigma infusion pumps and other assets over the Hospital’s Cisco Wi-Fi network. Hospital staff use AeroScout’s Web-based MobileView software platform to view current or historical asset movement, and search for pumps by maintenance status.

The Hospital has deployed over 3,000 tracked assets so far, and plans to expand to 10,000.
