These small Wi-Fi RFID tags from AeroScout are designed for tracking patients, staff and medical devices. The tags work with pre-existing, standard Wi-Fi networks, enabling hospitals to track people and medical equipment enterprise-wide -- without having to install dedicated RFID readers or a proprietary network. The tags can also be used for chokepoint detection, such as alerting staff when a wandering patient leaves the ward unattended, or for room and bay-level location, such as identifying a patient within a preoperative suite.
