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 readers and thousands of tags in use. Additionally, RFID has proved to be more cost-effective for Aionex and its customers, as infrared wrist bands and scanners cost significantly more than their RFID counterparts.

"We continue to work with customers across all industries to apply RFID as a true networking technology," said Rob Balgley, CEO of SkyeTek. "By choosing SkyeTek, Aionex is not only helping its customers to improve their operations but also allowing them to reap the benefits of enhanced security, improved reliability, and lower costs."

Aionex chose SkyeTek's active RFID reader technology because it offers powerful functionality in an extremely small form factor that is embedded easily into a variety of wireless devices, including handheld PDAs. The SkyeModule M1, a multi-protocol embedded high frequency RFID reader module for OEMs, provides a low-power, high-performance, and cost-effective option for embedded applications. The SkyeModule M1 runs ReaderWare software, the brains behind all SkyeTek readers, easing integration and providing customers with a significant cost-performance advantage.
