The hospital-focused design of the RadarFind Real Time Location System (RTLS) empowers hospitals to deploy the indoor tracking system as part of their overall infection control efforts.
While other companies offer Real Time Location Systems designed to help hospital staff more quickly locate critical patient care equipment, only RadarFind provides valuable, accurate information about a device's status and location history, which can assist a hospital's infection control and surveillance.
RadarFind's unique asset tag provides status information in two ways. First, when a staff member moves a simple slider switch to indicate that a medical device (such as an infusion pump) is available, in-use or needs cleaning, the tag communicates this information to the RadarFind server, which displays that piece of equipment as green (available), yellow (in use with a patient) or red (needs cleaning) on RadarFind's locator maps and reports. Second, because the tags themselves include a color-coded bar, staff have a visual cue on each tagged device to quickly determine that equipment is disinfected and available for patient use.
"The ability of our system to provide real-time status information about medical equipment sets it apart from other systems and allows RadarFind to play an instrumental role in hospital infection control efforts," said Terry Kane, M.D., chief executive officer for RadarFind.
RadarFind was developed after two years of intensive, physician-guided research and development focused specifically on the needs of hospitals. RadarFind offers clear advantages over other systems in the marketplace in terms of superior technology, accuracy, ease of installation and affordability.
Designed to seamlessly integrate with existing hospital infrastructure and operations, the system requires no new wiring and operates independently of a hospital's critical IT network. RadarFind's readers (locators) plug into existing hospital-grade electrical outlets, with the outlets still available for other electrical devices. These readers communicate with advanced ID tags affixed to equipment and the intuitive tracking software simply displays information on hospital staff's screens.
