Enterprises across industry sectors face a common challenge how can they track, analyze and interact with employees, assets and customers based on their movement and physical location Existing solutions, GPS and Wifi, are expensive, battery intensive and insufficiently accurate indoors. Current location tracking services often fail to initiate appropriate actions based on location. Enterprises require a solution that interprets a specific movement with sufficient accuracy to initiate an activity. Lassie is proposed, a location aware medical concierge service. We use a lightweight, low cost, highly configurable physical infrastructure enabling accurate indoor location tracking. We leverage the context provided by this knowledge to deliver a suite of innovative improvements to the traditional medical care service delivery model. Lassie is built in accordance with Service Oriented Architecture best practices and leverages a mature, enterprise capable platform as the foundation architecture. Phase 2 activities will focus on development and enhancement of the existing proof of concept applications, extension of the foundation architecture, and development of supporting administration modules. This is a patient focused service however the underlying platform establishes the prerequisites for clinician and operations staff focused services.
