Ekahau Inc. announced that the Brooke Army Medical Center at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas has selected the Ekahau real time location system to track more than 5,000 pieces of mobile equipment throughout the facility.
For the medical center’s implementation the Ekahau system was integrated into Conexus’s Plexus Vision product, which offers a range of data collection and reporting options for hospitals. The combined solution allows the tracking of assets using Wi-Fi RTLS tags, passive RFID tags and barcodes, based on asset-specific requirements.
Brooke Army Medical Center is currently experiencing growth as the U.S. Defense Department consolidates the hospital with neighboring Wilford Hall Medical Center to create an integrated campus known as San Antonio Medical Center.
The initial system will use Ekahau Wi-Fi tags to track the more than 5,000 assets for the hospitals biomedical engineering group, with plans to expand the system to track as many as 20,000 assets across all San Antonio Military Center faculties.
