They needed to receive, document, test, and transport more than 3,500 passengers of a cruise ship on which 21 people had contracted the coronavirus. The location needed to support medical staff, logistics teams, and other response parties; connected devices such as patient-worn armband RF scanners and PCs; and the Joint Patient Assessment and Tracking System for tracking patient location throughout the process.
