Awarepoint Corp, San Diego, announces that UCSD medical center is expanding its Awarepoint real-time location system (RTLS) deployment to include its Hillcrest campus—the primary hospital for the University of California San Diego School of Medicine.  
The recently renovated Hillcrest campus is a 386-bed hospital with nearly one million square feet of space. The expansion more than doubles the coverage area and triples the number of equipment assets the medical center is wirelessly tracking.
Currently, UCSD employs Awarepoint RTLS for its 119-bed, medical-surgical facility, Thornton Hospital.
The Awarepoint RTLS offers UCSD room level location accuracy on an enterprise-wide basis, while providing a 100% wireless, cost-free installation that includes a fully managed service model that allows easy scalability on a per asset per month basis. The system also aims to improve the medical center’s responsiveness to Joint Commission and FDA requirements.
