Real Time Patient Tracking an example of RTLS “Real Time Patient Tracking is a subset of Context-Aware Healthcare Solution where the Patient movement is tracked and Recorded for the entire treatment cycle for improved Customer Satisfaction and Enhanced Resource utilization in a typical hospital environment” www.blazeautomation.com
Real Time Patient Tracking - Overview Active RFID TAG www.blazeautomation.com
Real Time Patient Tracking - Components involvedActive RFID TAG Wireless RTLS Infrastructure Standalone Application Software www.blazeautomation.com
Active RFID TAG (Wrist Band Type) – FeaturesThis active wristband RFID tag operates at the frequency of 2.45GHz ISM. Its output power is 0dBm, the read ranges from 0 to 100m. It alerts the authorities when the strap is tampered. Encapsulated within a soft, durable and waterproof housing, the tag is very comfortable to wear. In addition, this wristband RFID tag features low power consumption and long battery life more than 4 years. www.blazeautomation.com
