Overview: Real-time locating systems (RTLS) are becoming mainstream in healthcare environments. Although currently there is only a 29% adoption rate, this number is expected to grow to nearly 70% by 2011. However, there are many different RTLS offerings as well as remarkable variation in the implementation processes, functionality, and long-term success with each system. This white paper explores the implementation costs between two popular RTLS solutions: Wi-Fi RFID (radio frequency identification) from Cisco and hardwired Infrared-RFID from Versus, and outline system performance expectations following implementation.
