RFID in Healthcare
Use Cases & Applications
RFID technology in healthcare offers insight into hospital operations; providing real-time actionable data, historical analytics and automated alerts to optimize workflows and improve processes.
Introduction to RFID in Healthcare
Passive RFID in its most basic form is a location tracking technology for anyone and anything. RFID infrastructure requires the installation of readers, antennas and software that can read a wide variety of RFID tags which can be applied to patients, consumable materials, equipment, surgical instruments, specimen and staff. Quake's RFID software (QiAM) can be used for process improvement, workflow automation and security while also providing actionable data analytics. With integrations into healthcare software this becomes a powerful tool for improving processes, workflows, patient satisfaction and security.
Medical Equipment Management
Asset tracking provides data for the optimization of clinical and equipment workflows along with maintenance reminders and other automated alerts for inventory awareness of medical, IT and facility equipment. Read more.
Specimen Workflow Optimization
Specimen tracking provides real-time location data for all active specimen and automated alerts for anomalies in the specimen workflow. Quake's system delivers hospitals greatly improved processing time with 99.98% accuracy of specimen identification. From the specimen collector to the processor and beyond; passively monitor the route of each specimen to ensure accurate data and delivery. Read more.
Clinical Workflow Optimization
Patient, staff and equipment tracking with RFID technology provides real-time data for the improvement of clinical processes. Increase patient throughput, optimize clinical or equipment workflows and reduce operating costs with actionable data, historical analytics and automated alerts. Read more.
Hospital Infection Control
Healthcare RFID technology provides location data for all active and tagged people and assets within a hospital. Historical and real-time location data gives hospitals the ability to develop more accurate containment plans in the chance of infectious disease outbreak. Read more.
