      Medical applications of telemetry continue to evolve with the demand for real time networked medical data, and with minimum intrusion to the mobility of the patient. This paper presents several architectures for managing a scalable hospital’s medical devices localization service and shows how these can be represented using the Unified Modeling Language (UML) model. It targets medical devices which are equipped with wireless technologies such as WiFi, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), etc. which can be incorporated into a networked telemetry system. The UML modeling demonstrates a scalable medical devices localization service for a hospital which can make use of client-server and cloud based architectures. The resulting model is a step towards a practical implementation of the service in tackling several problems which can arise due to the misplacement and improper sharing of medical devices in a healthcare scenario such as hospitals.
