Track location and movements of personnel and assets, fungible consumption, besides access control in your sites, anytime, anywhere

eTaggate is an application focused on real-time monitoring of assets, people, and consumables in hospitals, convention centers, and other large settings by tracking RFID tags associated with those assets.

With the support of an RFID reader infrastructure installed in portals and gates in a facility and the RFID labeling of goods, eTaggate relates assets to locations allowing real-time tracking of the relevant resources of a hospital facility, easing their location, availability, and security.

Similarly, people can be located through the use of RFID wristbands or badges assigned to personnel, patients, and visitors, allowing or denying access to restricted areas, and thanks to defined rules, to know their availability in emergency cases.

WHY DO I NEED eTaggate?

Hospitals spend a significant part of their budget on medical supplies, especially drugs, equipment, furniture, and consumables. Given its high variability, purchase logistics are complex, but in-hospital logistics are even more complex due to the urgency of many medical procedures and the difficult task of predicting future needs.

This leads to buying material in excess and being without efficient control within the hospital facilities, it can be lost, stolen, or simply not be where it is needed when it is needed. Such control of assets, consumables, or even people is impossible if it is not automated by sensors in each zone that identify them and record their movements.

  • Exhaustive monitoring of medical and consumable equipment favors internal and external logistical efficiency, leading to a reduction in expenses and waste as well as greater agility in the availability of resources.

  • Other procedures such as the use of bar codes depend on explicit actions carried out by personnel, spending personnel time, and also being susceptible to human errors.

Although the investment in the infrastructure is significant, the benefits are important due to lower material losses, a reduction in the purchase of material, the increase in staff productivity, and the improvement in the quality of the service.

WHAT BENEFITS PROVIDE eTaggate?

  • Ability to control the availability and location of mobile assets in real-time.

  • Control of inventory in real-time by zones, warehouses, locations, floors, and buildings.

  • Management of personnel access as well as their location or availability.

  • Identification of material consumption in surgical or emergency areas (also applicable to drugs, blood, samples, etc.).

  • Monitoring of patients in the premises, and especially in predefined circuits (ambulatory surgery, rehabilitation, test procedures, etc.)

  • Notifications or automatic actions linked to rules by location or availability.
