RFID Systems for Ambulance Services

Across Canada and the U.S.A., the professionals in Ambulance Services are the first responders to many critical situations daily: from natural disasters to medical incidents, they are at the front line and are often put in situations where rapid response and decision making is the difference between life and death.

GAO RFID solutions for Ambulance Services are designed to help EMS organizations tackle the common challenges faced each day, including:

  • Checking the inventory of medication
  • Checking the expiration dates of medical supplies
  • Monitoring equipment maintenance schedules
  • Tracking patient triage status
  • Managing EMS fleet location and maintenance schedules
  • Tracking and managing patient reports and documentation

Our RFID solutions help to automate ambulatory care processes to ensure the efficient operation of each ambulance vehicle and increase the care and safety it can provide to the patients they serve.

The GAO RFID Ambulance Services System

The GAO RFID Ambulance Services System ensures that the wide range of assets is managed for optimum efficiency in every EMS organization. Every stage of the emergency response process for Ambulance Services  is critical, and it is important to have absolute visibility of assets, inventory, and patients to ensure prompt and professional care is always provided.

Inventory Management

Supplies and consumables on vehicles can be checked within minutes–not hours, before and after each shift. The GAO RFID Asset Management feature of the Ambulance Services System provides you with a way to check inventory levels and expiration dates, ensuring that every ambulance is equipped properly and in compliance with the law.

Equipment Management

IVs, catheters, and ambulance vehicles are all critical equipment that need to be on board and precisely maintained to ensure they are always in operating condition. Installing UHF RFID Tags to each equipment enables the GAO RFID Ambulance Services System automates the equipment tracking and maintenance schedule monitoring processes, ensuring all equipment are on board and in working order.

Document Management

Patient Report Forms completed by EMS staff at the scene of emergency can provide key information about the patient to the receiving hospital. These documents are also susceptible to clinical audits to promote a high standard of care. The GAO RFID Ambulance Services System automates the management of these forms and any other related documents to ensure documentation can be tracked and located in real-time when required.

Patient Tracking

In many emergency response situations, the patient requires urgent treatment; this means they are transported from the scene to the hospitals that can provide the best care. Patients assessed at the scene are tagged to determine the status of patients and to which hospital they are transferring to. When using paper tagging methods, the tracking ends at the scene, making it difficult to locate patients after they are transported. The GAO RFID Personnel Tracking solution is an integral part of the Ambulance Services System uses RFID tags and readers to identify and track patients as they are transported from the scene to the hospital, making patient tracking efficient and accurate.

Integrating our Solution with your Healthcare System

At the core of our solution is GAO RFID’s AUTO-ID Engine that incorporates middleware and essential RFID functions to perform RFID data collection and information processing. This information is directly accessible by and useful to the emergency administration staff. Furthermore, using a proper API, this data can be passed on for further processing to your organization’s emergency management and emergency management systems.

Our team of professionals will use our hardware and system integration expertise to integrate the GAO RFID Solution with your IT architecture. The result is an RFID solution that is seamlessly unified with your emergency management system.
