June 16, 2010

Grand Rapids MI (June 10, 2010) – Skytron, a division of the KMW Group, Inc., announced that University of Mississippi Medical Center has selected the company’s real-time location (RTLS) solution, powered by Awarepoint,  to automatically track and manage over 6,000 hospital assets throughout their 756 beds and 1.9 million square-foot facility.

The wireless infrastructure enabled quick installation without disrupting patient care throughout the entire enterprise. Skytron asset tags, powered by Awarepoint, broadcast low-power radio messages which enables UMMC to quickly locate specific assets and provide real-time information about their movement and status. The installation provides true hospital-wide awareness – not only room-level, but persistent accuracy across the entire hospital footprint. With easy access to the RTLS system via a desktop icon, all authorized employees can easily locate needed equipment as well as the nearest available equipment in real time situations.
