Ekahau RTLS Selected by University of Kentucky Healthcare
Date:6/11/2009

RESTON, Virginia, June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Ekahau Inc., a leading provider of Wi-Fi-based Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS), today announced that UK HealthCare is deploying Ekahau RTLS to track mobile medical equipment at the University of Kentucky Albert B. Chandler Hospital in Lexington, KY. Chandler Hospital is the first member of the University HealthSystems Consortium (UHC) to deploy the Ekahau RTLS solution under a preferred-provider agreement announced earlier this year.

"Because Ekahau RTLS operates over any brand of Wi-Fi network, it was the ideal solution for leveraging our existing infrastructure," said Jean Sargeant, director of Supply Chain for UK HealthCare. "The solution enables us to track IV pumps, wheeled beds and wheelchairs quickly and cost-effectively, with the accuracy we require."

UK HealthCare selected Ekahau RTLS as its location tracking vendor because it can be quickly and easily deployed over the existing 802.11 Wi-Fi networks and delivers room-level and bed-level accuracy without requiring proprietary chokepoints or readers, which can cause interference with medical equipment. The Ekahau RTLS tags also support two-way communications, enabling location information to be sent from the tags to the system and push alerts and upgrades back to the tags. In addition, the Ekahau software enables the IT staff at Chandler Hospital to create zones in order to ensure equipment is where it needs to be, while tracking historical movement for compliance and usage optimization.

The initial deployment at Chandler Hospital will be comprised of 2,600 tags in the approximately 500-bed facility. UK HealthCare expects to expand the location tracking system to a new replacement hospital that will begin opening in phases in
