U.K.-based GE Healthcare is collaborating with CenTrak, Inc. of Newton, Pa. on a technology that they say is capable of dividing a room or segmenting a bay by creating RFID “virtual walls.”

The technology was developed to meet the needs of healthcare providers to track tagged mobile medical equipment down to portion of a single room, according to the companies. The Asset Optimization System gives hospitals the ability to accurately locate assets within a monitored area as small as 6’ x 8’, the size of a typical small patient bay.
