Washington-based Walter Reed Army Medical Center (WRAMC) has selected San Diego-based Awarepoint's Real-time Awareness Solution to provide a hospital-wide RFID asset management system.

According to Awarepoint, hospital staff will use the system to track the location, status and movement of the hospital's mobile medical equipment within the hospital's 1.1 million square feet and building topography including cement fortification.

Awarepoint's says its wireless sensor network, that can be configured in days, offered WRAMC a non-disruptive, dust-free installation. WRAMC is in the process of tagging 4,000 assets.
