AeroScout announced that York Hospital in Pennsylvania has implemented AeroScout’s Wi-Fi-based RFID asset tracking solution in emergency, biomedical engineering and transportation departments.
The solution deployed at York Hospital, a 580-bed WellSpan community teaching hospital, consists of AeroScout’s MobileView software and Wi-Fi tags. These tags are attached to mobile hospital assets, including gurneys, infusion pumps, feeding pumps, portable physiological monitors and circulatory assistance pumps. The solution allows staff to immediately locate a tagged item via any computer on the network using the MobleView interface.
According to Chad Noll, manager of biomedical engineering at WellSpan, Aeroscout’s solution was quick and easy to implement because it runs on the standard Wi-Fi already in use at the hospital. Because of the existing network, hospital staff can also locate computers and portable IP phones without the need of a tag.
