1.     Enhanced Patient Monitoring and Record-Keeping:

MiTEQ's RFID Solutions, seamlessly integrated into patient-worn wristbands, facilitate the streamlined management of online medical certificates. These RFID tags, housing crucial patient information, enable hospital staff to effortlessly locate specific patients and access their updated personal records. The continuous transmission of radio signals provides real-time tracking of patient movement.


2.     Adaptive Access Control:

MiTEQ leads the way in RFID door entry systems, providing an accurate and scalable security solution for managing property access in healthcare facilities. Staff members receive personalized credentials stored in MiTEQ's advanced RFID cards or fobs, ensuring doors remain locked until a verified card is presented. With cloud-based systems allowing remote management, MiTEQ empowers security staff to monitor live event logs, adjust credentials, and revoke permissions when necessary.


3.     Real-Time Equipment Tracking:

MiTEQ's RFID Solutions excel in tracking surgical instruments, offering live records of sterilisation and use to reduce the risk of medical errors. These RFID tags also track assets in the hospital, assisting staff in planning rounds and providing timely indications when equipment requires maintenance. Automated alerts warn of impending maintenance needs, enabling safe equipment rotation and minimising the risk of instrument failures.


4.     Pharmaceutical Tracking and Asset Management:

MiTEQ integrates RFID tags seamlessly with cutting-edge asset tracking and management software to monitor pharmaceuticals in real time. This solution provides live updates on expiration dates, stock levels, and supply chain availability. Automated alerts, a signature feature of MiTEQ's RFID Solutions, notify staff of impending expiration dates, allowing for timely reordering if linked to a comprehensive inventory management system.


5.     Analytical Insights and Logistics:

MiTEQ's RFID tracking systems continuously transmit data, empowering management staff to analyse patient and staff usage of core facilities. Through state-of-the-art data analysis software, MiTEQ enables the prediction of patient flow and equipment use, facilitating efficient inventory ordering and employee scheduling. These insightful analytics also assist in adjusting treatment schedules, planned surgeries, and employee workflows to ensure optimal patient care and staff support.


In summary, RFID Solutions can enhance caregiving efficiency and fortify the security of patients and staff. Real-time data, automated alerts, and advanced analytics combine to provide immediate assistance, ensure resource availability, and make accurate predictions for future needs, solidifying MiTEQ's position at the forefront of RFID innovation in healthcare.
