’s RFID solution to track the location of patients throughout the hospital.
At OHMC, 601 Wi-Fi-based Active RFID tags will be attached to patients’ chart-holders and accompany them as they move throughout the ten floors and two patient care towers of the 632-bed facility, says the company. The tags use OHMC’s pre-existing standard San Jose, Calif.-based Cisco Wi-Fi network, which is also used for laptops and wireless phones at the hospital.
