Executive Summary

Hospitals have always had certain needs which must be met in order to properly treat their patients. Patient medical information needs to be maintained in a way that is secure yet provides an efficient means of access and updating. Patient identification and location within the hospital must be known at all times, for reasons involving safety and practicality of treatment. In many cases, vital signs must be measured persistently, even with patients who are independently mobile. The RFID Patient Monitor (RPM) system meets these disparate needs in one convenient package. Incorporating RFID monitoring, a means to effortlessly access patient records using only an Android mobile phone, and persistent monitoring of pulse and temperature, the RPM system is the clear choice for hospitals that want to be at the forefront of patient treatment.

Recent budget cuts, a weak economy, and the trend in the United States toward socialized medicine do not invalidate the need for up-to-date patient-care, utilizing current-generation technology. The unique QR code data access system appeals to the increasingly budget-conscious organizations, eliminating the need to equip the hospital with any number of barcode scanners; technology that is employed by other wristband patient-ID systems. With the download of a simple application, any Android phone can be used to scan the patient’s bracelet, though a password access system is implemented for privacy and security reasons. Elimination of barcode readers allows the RPM system to beat the competitors’ price points, while offering equivalent ID capabilities.

RFID tracking functionality allows hospital staff to pinpoint patient location at all times, meaning doctors and nurses can quickly find the patient in order to administer treatment, and the possibility for patients to get lost in the hospital is eliminated. Pulse monitoring allows hospital staff to be aware of one parameter of the patient’s general condition, and, along with the RFID monitoring, can quickly move to the patient’s location and treat the patient when abnormalities in pulse are detected.

An array of useful functions in one easy-to-use, affordable system is what makes the RPM such an attractive product, especially to larger hospitals. More capabilities and easier patient identification and database access as compared to similar products, at a price at or below the competition, will give the RPM a clear market advantage. Hospitals will want to incorporate this latest development in patient care to provide the ultimate in patient care.
