Hi, as far as I can tell, most of the existing health facility systems use existing WiFi infrastructure and as such use "active" tags rather than passive ones. The only addition detectors/receivers needed then are if you want to have "pass through" senors/alarms at doorways and the like.
There are also bluetooth based systems available such as Tracker.
