As indoor localization technologies become more affordable and sophisticated. An emerging market has yet to be realized commercially in the indoor environment. We think that the first adopter will arise from the healthcare domain where the need is the most critical. Thus, We aim to implement a set of location-aware services to assist in the management of the emergency department. We apply NTU Taroko, an active RFID module for to real time location tracking on patients, hospital assets, and medical staffs. In addition, we integrate context-aware system proactively to infer event notifications for reminding physicians and nurses. With the proposed system, we can shorten the process of emergency visit effectively and improve the quality of emergency care.
