SkyeTek's Secure RFID Solution to Improve Hospital Call Station Operations
WESTMINSTER, Colo., Oct. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- SkyeTek, Inc., the leading provider of embedded RFID solutions, today announced that Aionex has adopted SkyeTek's RFID reader technology to streamline delivery of patient care in hospitals. Aionex is leveraging SkyeTek's M1 HF SkyeModule to RFID-enable emergency rooms, operating rooms, and intensive care units. The readers provide Aionex's Patient Response Platform (PRP) with the information it needs to monitor patient care, authenticate hospital staff members, and track process efficacy.
"Our customers utilize our application and rules engine to track and report timed events as well as to verify and locate of staff and patients," said Curt Freemyer, CEO of Aionex. "As a result, our systems are directly involved in the day to day operations of hospitals and have an impact on the effectiveness of patient care at each facility. By combining our patented infrared solution with SkyeTek's RFID readers, we can now provide our customers with a robust tracking solution for our patient response platform that operates with the highest level of usability and reliability."
The Aionex Patient Response Platform (PRP) is a unique and fully integrated communication and transaction software product that rapidly communicates and documents information from various sources to specific personnel responsible for delivering patient care and services. Aionex relies on infrared technology for staff but needed RFID for patient wrist bands to improve the overall usability of the platform. The company researched several RFID readers before choosing SkyeTek's SkyeModule(TM) M1 and has been working with SkyeTek to develop its RFID-enabled PRP since last year.
Hospitals that have implemented PRP use RFID badges and wristbands to
identify staff members and patients, greatly improving wear-ability and
durability. One hospital has more than 350 RFID reade
