Drug management system in health sector such as hospitals and pharmacy in developing countries takes a lot of time and generates a lot of inconveniences for the patients due to inefficient method employed for inventory, identification, tracking and administration of drugs which is subject to manipulation. This paper presents the development of a RFID moveable asset tracking system. A smart medical cabinet through the use of RFID technology is designed to automate most of the processes involved in the dayto- day running of the pharmacy to track the movement of drugs within the hospital environment thereby offering a better and more secure inventory system. This system is made up of both hardware and software components. The hardware components include: a RFID active tag, RFID tag reader, web server and a database server. The tag readers are mounted in the smart shelves that houses the drugs to be administered to patients in the hospital or the pharmacy
