Track and Monitor the movement of Patients throughout the Hospital

The flow of patients through the hospital is a constant process and a recurring issue is the length of waiting time that a patient undergoes. However, beyond knowing when the patient arrives at the hospital and when the patient leaves the hospital, not much else is known of their time spent within the hospital. Continuous improvement in resource management and the patient experience is facilitated by up-to-date data on how long patients are spending in each tracked hospital location.

RFIDMedical is a complete solution for hospitals and healthcare facilities that tracks and monitors the movement of patients that are wearing an RFID-tagged wristband within a fixed-reader environment.

Information for all tracked patients is stored centrally on an RFIDMedical server ensuring that all data can be shared both internally and externally with the relevant personnel.


Furthermore, there can be specific cases when we would want to track a vulnerable patient, for example, a disabled or aged patient (with dementia), or an unaccompanied minor. ASD’s RFID tracking solution allows hospital staff members to know where these patients are. Alerts and messages will notify staff members whenever patients move from one area to another.

Once patients are wearing an RFID-tagged wristband and known to the RFIDMedical system, they are automatically monitored as they move within the fixed reader environment without the need for data to be manually entered into a system.  Transactions that users forgot to enter into the system become a thing of the past.  If unexpected or unauthorised movements occur, the system will issue alerts within a defined timeframe to the appropriate personnel via e-mail or text message to highlight the movement.

By assigning the RFID-tagged wristband to the patient it is possible to know how long the patient spends in the hospital including how long they spend in each department and how long they spend waiting. The system can then help to identify bottlenecks within the organisation.

Collecting this data over a period of time allows the hospital to build up vital statistical information, which can be analysed in order to improve service delivery and the following benefits should be expected:

Better patient experience

Automatic data collection.
Knowledge of the location of the patient.
Improved efficiency.

Improve patient flow by assigning an RFID wristband to the patient to track their location in any given area. By doing this it is possible to know how long the patient spends in the hospital including (most importantly) how long they spend waiting – which is a primary negative experience for a patient when attending a hospital. RFIDMedical provides hospitals with traceability and visibility of patients and all RFID-tagged items.

Using industry standards, RFIDMedical provides data that can be shared internally within the hospital, data that can be interfaced to other hospital systems and data that can be shared externally with selected suppliers and business partners.  Standing on the foundation of such industry standards allows hospitals to avoid customization of any kind with suppliers.

All RFIDMedical solutions are GS1 / EPC accredited and comply with the GS1 EPC Tag Data Standard.
