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.

Also, it seems that you forgot these two, Mika:-

Thinking about using BlueTooth? Maybe you need to think again. frown

Has anyone got RFID tags on their medical assets ?

Do they affect the performance of the medical device if placed in close proximity or stuck on the unit ?

Many UK hospitals have them.

They should not interfere with the functioning of the device (especially if they are the passive type) ... unless, of course, you stick them across the "Off" button or something daft like that! smile

thats good.

I wonder if active RFID tags can affect performance of wifi reliant medical devices..

Like an active RFID tag on an infusion pump

I should imagine that manufacturers have considered all that, Andy ... and (hopefully) system suppliers will have, too.

Otherwise, take a look at the frequencies involved. And (or) if you're lucky enough to be well-endowed with nice test equipment, carry out some tests with a Spectrum Ananlyzer!* smile

Meanwhile ... "Harland-Simon in Administration" (probably why the links no longer work). frown
