US Air Force Medical Service Selects Shipcom Wireless for Major Healthcare RFID Contract
Date:5/20/2008

Healthcare IT provider wins multi-million dollar, multi-year technology

contract at Keesler Medical Center, Biloxi, MS

HOUSTON, May 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Shipcom Wireless, Inc., a leading global provider of enterprise and healthcare solutions, announced today that they have been selected by the Air Force Surgeon General's Office to review the current uses of RFID technology across the Air Force Medical Service and then pilot RFID systems to improve clinical operations at the Medical Center at Keesler Air Force Base in Mississippi.

Mr. David Baker, a clinical engineer with the Air Force Surgeon General's office noted that this project, "Expands from just asset tracking to tracking lab specimens, medications, and possibly patients. When we first presented the concept and potential applications of RFID technology to the Air Force Surgeon General, he quickly saw potential value on the clinical side. The biggest shortfall to this point is the lack of a well defined business case that clearly shows the technology saves bottom line dollars."

The project will involve a baseline assessment of the existing implementations of RFID at Air Force medical centers, using Shipcom's HOCAM(TM) (Hospital Operational & Clinical Assessment Model). This assessment will be followed by recommendations on how the Air Force can most effectively utilize RFID and related technologies to improve patient care and make clinical processes more efficient. Finally, Shipcom will model and implement specific RFID solutions at Keesler Medical Center using Shipcom's x/Care(TM) suite of healthcare applications, including the patient care module p/Care(TM) and the Asset Management module a/Care(TM).

"Like the rest of the healthcare industry, our military's care system is in the process of modernizing its IT infrastructure and they are taking all possible steps to ensure patient safety and improve hospital management," said John Shoemaker, President of Shipcom.
