RFID Solution to Track Equipment Used by Emergency Medical Service Personnel

Equipment Management Service and Repair (EMSAR), a company that services and repairs health-care and medical-services equipment for clients nationwide, is providing an RFID-based solution developed by Silent Partner Technologies (SPT) for its clients to track its assets' locations.

The solution is focused on solving several problems. It helps an emergency medical service (EMS) provider's staff to quickly locate items requiring maintenance or inspection, and also helps crews, such as ambulance drivers or other emergency responders, to ensure that they do not leave their often-expensive equipment behind when going out on a call.

The RFID Asset Management system includes 433 MHz, 915 MHz or 2.4 GHz active RFID tags mounted on equipment, as well as RFID readers installed within emergency vehicles, and computers running software that tracks read data, both remotely and in the cab of the vehicle itself. The tags and readers are supplied by a variety of vendors, depending on a customer's particular needs.

EMSAR, located in Wilmington, Ohio, was founded 15 years ago to service medical capital equipment, such as stretchers and other patient-lifting equipment and beds for the healthcare and EMS markets. The firm is among the largest such service companies in the United States.
