Reltronics Technologies is implementing solutions
Today Reltronics Technologies is providing the right RFID solutions, not just for
supply chain management, but for the broader health care marketplace as well. Among
those benefiting are the many small to mid-size providers and clinics seeking an
edge to improved operational efficiency to enhanced patient safety — against
larger competitors. RFID solutions that Reltronics Technologies implements include:
Patient safety at point-of-care
There is global awareness of tragic wrong-site, wrong-patient and wrong-procedure
surgeries. Having the RFID tag attached to a patient, enables the physician to verify
the correct patient, procedure and site — prior to the start of any invasive
procedure. In the operating room, a handheld reader is employed to authenticate
the information on the tag, the patient’s chart and ID wristband.
Reltronics Technologies currently utilizes RFID to help caregivers scan patient
ID badges to authenticate and access appropriate levels of information and clinical
data. For instance, RFID tags containing full patient histories can provide emergency
workers with a potentially life-saving “head start” to make treatment
decisions. Alternatively, this can also alert a nurse to a patient’s medication
allergy at their bedside or even inform a doctor making rounds to recent test results.
Increasingly, hospitals want to track patients in real-time, and Reltronics Technologies
provides customized solutions to meet this requirement. RFID tags can be attached
to the ID bracelets of all patients, or just patients requiring special attention,
to ensure that their location is tracked constantly. Physicians can use the RFID
system to easily locate patients, increasing their productivity on rounds. RFID
tags can also be placed on door locks to enhance safety of the infirmed, elderly
and infants or on bed rails to reduce bed exit accidents. Additionally, tags are
being used to reduce errors in patient identity authentication for admission, diagnostics,
interviews and release.
Reltronics Technologies RFID asset tracking solutions are helping hospitals better
manage highly mobile medical equipment, such as IV pumps and wheelchairs. Asset
tracking employs RFID tags to transmit location data to workstation software, which
displays the data on a floor plan of the hospital. Trained nurses can use the software
to locate the items during their daily routines. Not only does the hospital reduce
inventory and labor costs, but nurses save hours a day that they can devote to patient
An RFID-enabled meds management solution allows a clinician to scan a patient’s
wristband to validate identification and review current orders from a physician.
Likewise, tagged medications can be scanned to verify that patient, medication,
dose and timing are consistent and accurate. In another application, RFID-enabled
prescription bottles have the potential of signaling when the container is opened
and can provide caregivers with a record that indicates when medicines are taken
As in retail, RFID in health care provides a simple, low-cost solution that allows
tracking of supplies from the factory to storage shelves. By enhancing supply chain
efficiencies, hospitals and clinics achieve improvements in availability of supplies,
less duplication and loss of equipment, and savings in inventory costs.
End-to-end, start to finish
Through our deep commitment and breadth of capabilities, Reltronics Technologies
can guide you through your RFID transformation from business case and deployment
strategies, to solution building and pilot programs, to enterprise rollout and integration.
Design a Pilot >> Feedback >> Run >> Implement
The execution of integrated and concurrent work streams can help accelerate RFID
readiness. We follow a systematic approach that ascertains implementation
success by staging the application and hardware appropriately first in the QA or
test environment prior to promoting it to the production environment.
The Reltronics Technologies advantage
Reltronics Technologies is now leading the way in the development and integration
of custom RFID solutions to provide dramatic benefits for health care providers,
caregivers and patients as well as insurers, pharmaceuticals and medical manufacturers.
Simultaneously, Reltronics Technologies is developing exciting solutions to integrate
disparate IT systems for doctors and hospitals and capitalize the benefits of RFID.
Reltronics Technologies RFID solutions enable users to essentially collect, integrate
and manage data collected from tags, readers and even wireless Wi-Fi networks. Prominently,
Reltronics Technologies systems are massively scalable, enabling hospitals and clinics
to handle an unpredictably large stream of data, all transmitted without the normal,
delay factor due to human input. These systems can be deployed in stages and are
capable of scaling for full business utilization. RFID’s automation of many
business processes will make your organization more responsive, flexible and cost
