HATBORO, Pa. - InfoLogix, a market leader in Healthcare Information Technology total solutions announces HealthTrax, their new solution for Real-Time Location Tracking and management of medical devices. HealthTrax was developed with InfoLogix partner AeroScout, the leader in the field of Wi-Fi based Active RFID solutions. The first demonstration of the integrated solution will be in San Diego at HIMSS 2006, the top Healthcare Informatics Conference for the year. Also at HIMSS, InfoLogix and AeroScout will discuss performance and ROI of HealthTrax for Asset Tracking and for Patient Location Tracking.
"Integrating the RFID Asset Tracking Technology of HealthTrax helps hospitals become more effective and cost efficient by having real-time management of mobile assets, for both affordability and effectiveness," said David Gulian, President of InfoLogix. "Already, our products and services ease the burden of meeting JCAHO reporting requirements and support preparedness for JCAHO audits. Our total Asset Management solution will enable our customers to always know where medical equipment is located and make preventive maintenance more efficient." HealthTrax Asset Tracking was designed to remove the high cost and complexity of determining medical equipment location. "We fully expect to make a real impact on utilization of medical equipment assets, which costs healthcare millions annually. Most hospitals are unaware of their true inventory value and what they are spending in replacement costs."
HealthTrax is a complete solution for tracking assets and people within hospitals, and includes both RFID asset tags and enterprise software that can be used with standard wireless networks. The HealthTrax RFID tag is 802.11 Wi-Fi-based and leverages the existing wireless infrastructure; hospitals will not need a separate or redundant wireless network for Asset Tracking. Once the tags are attached to desired items, hospital staff can quickly locate what they need and when they need it on an easy-to-use Web-based electronic floor plan. This tagged hospital equipment can also provide security benefits by triggering an alarm if hospital assets are taken from designated areas.
