MAKING SENSE OF A CROWDED MARKET…

The market for healthcare tracking technologies is crowded and confusing. Manufacturers utilize multiple technologies, sometimes in combination, to achieve a range of functions aimed at solving a range of problems. At VIZZIA, we take pride in our ability to select and deploy the most sensible technologies for each application required by our hospital customers. These technologies fall into three categories: real-time location systems (RTLS), passive RFID and software.

 

RTLS: CONTINUOUS VISIBILITY

RTLS has enjoyed a steady growth in popularity within the healthcare industry since its introduction more than a decade ago — in large part due to its “real-time” tracking capabilities.

RTLS systems utilize various technologies…

 

PASSIVE RFID: LOW COST, LARGE RETURN

A passive RFID tracking system can provide substantial ROI at a fraction of the cost of an RTLS system. While RTLS systems track movement in real time, passive systems require manual scanning of tags. Though not ideal for E.D. workflow improvement, surgical services or hand-hygiene compliance, VIZZIA’s passive systems are ideal for the tracking and management of moveable medical equipment. There are several different types of passive systems, each of which functions differently. Learn more about passive RFID…
