Using RFID technologies, this paper reports a proof-of-concept design
and deployment for tracking expensive medical supplies for
tuberculosis patients. The supply chain starts from the distribution
centers down to regional health units. The supply chain tracking
system features the novel use of an integrated subversion based
staging server to provide data synchronization between the various
distribution centers and a remote backend database.
