RFID is playing a major role around the world in field of healthcare from patient identification and monitoring, asset tracking, and patient-drug compliance. We have developed some phenomenal applications like tracking infants and mothers for hospital labor and delivery departments to ensure patient safety, they rely on positive patient identification. Being able to verify that the right patient is receiving the right treatment, medication and/or breast milk for both mother and newborn are critical. Focusing on these important patient safety and other issues, many hospitals are now looking for a Mother-Infant Identification system.
We with our RFID experience developed applications have developed another product that allows Mother-Infant identification using the tamper evident Active RFID wristband tag for location tracking and mother/infant matching authentication.
All mothers and infants are tagged with Active RFID bands to track their movement real time.
On bringing a child near to her/his mother a green light flashes on a positive match and a red light in case of mismatch.
This application also provides Geo Fencing feature adding more security to the system, any kind of unauthorized movement of infant from the desired zone will trigger an alarm, which can then only be turned off by taking necessary actions. These kind of alerts can also be sent to the Higher Management through SMS option.
