The Wi-Fi RFID solution for tracking patients and equipment
Prival is committed to excellence in our practice of providing services to hospitals. Our specialized and experienced team recognizes the challenges you are called upon to overcome. Consider them as partners eager to help and accompany you in accomplishing your mission. Always ready to listen, nothing fascinates them more than to advise you and offer the services that will meet your needs. It is for these reasons Prival has chosen to deploy the Wi-Fi RFID solution from AeroScout, the world leader in location-based tracking.
AeroScout is widely recognized as the worldwide leader in Healthcare RTLS. In fact, according to the recent KLAS report published in 2009, “AeroScout has the largest market share and the most organizations looking to them for RTLS needs.” AeroScout is exclusively endorsed by the American Hospital Association and also is a preferred provider for some of the most prestigious healthcare organizations, such as Premier and University HealthSystem Consortium (UHC). Healthcare customers around the globe are driving benefits which are essential to their operations – ensuring regulatory compliance, improving patient safety, reducing capital and operational expenditures, increasing staff efficiency and enhancing patient care.
AeroScout provides hospital-wide patient, staff and asset tracking as well as wireless temperature and humidity monitoring. Over 400 hospitals have chosen AeroScout’s Asset Management, Equipment Management, Temperature & Humidity Monitoring, Patient & Staff Safety and Workflow Management solutions. All of AeroScout’s solutions leverage existing and standard Wi-Fi networks to speed deployments and reduce TCO.
Using wireless access points (APs) from all of the leading WLAN vendors, hospitals can now locate and track items with AeroScout tags and software, without adding additional network hardware. This joint solution enables low-cost, highly reliable location-based applications.
Wi-Fi RFID offers the ability to locate valuable assets and people without the need for an intrusive separate network, and use this location data to improve business processes. Hospitals, manufacturers and other enterprises can now use a single, unified wireless network for data, voice and visibility services.
How it Works
AeroScout's Wi-Fi RFID tags and software are fully integrated with the standard wireless networking equipment from multiple leading vendors. Through these partnerships, the vendors' APs can now act like RFID readers, picking up transmissions from AeroScout tags and other Wi-Fi devices, without interrupting their normal operations.
Location is determined by either the AeroScout Engine or the networking vendor's location appliance, and AeroScout MobileView provides the enterprise software layer to deliver business value from Wi-Fi RFID asset location and status. The end result is that users benefit from a high return on investment, as well as a system flexible enough for numerous environments and multiple visibility applications.
