Healthcare Tech Outlook | Tuesday, April 26, 2022

Interface enhances personal protection monitoring services to create a security suite for businesses, hospitals, and birthing centers.

FREMONT, CA: Patient Safety's objective is to prevent and minimize risks, errors, and injury to patients during health care provision. Continuous improvement is a cornerstone of the profession, based on lessons learned through errors and unfavorable events. Patient safety is critical to providing high-quality vital health care. Interface Security Systems, a leading managed service provider that provides business security, managed network, unified communications as a service, and business intelligence solutions to distributed enterprises, has expanded a suite of Personal Protection Monitoring services that utilize active RFID tags to protect infants from abduction, prevent mother/infant mismatches, and monitor memory care patients.

“Our experience in implementing lone and mobile worker safety solutions has given us deep insight into the challenges associated with delivering personal protection monitoring solutions. Our new solutions for infants and wandering patients build on this capability and give us the opportunity to help healthcare service providers ramp up security and protect lives,” states Brian Garavuso, Chief Technology Officer, Interface Security Systems.

Personal Protection Monitoring was established in June 2020 to safeguard vulnerable lone and mobile workers in retail, restaurant, and hospitality companies. With today's introduction, Interface expands its Personal Protection Monitoring products to include healthcare solutions. This consists of the addition of the following new service offerings—infant security devices for newborn infants at birthing centers and hospitals to avoid abductions and the infant being accidentally paired with the wrong parent and patients in hospitals, behavioral health facilities, and memory care facilities can use the Wander management system.

Interface has teamed up with GuardRFID, a market leader in real-time location systems (RTLS), to deploy newborn security and wander monitoring solutions. Interface will deploy GuardRFIDs RFID active tags in conjunction with the RTLS and integrate the solution with onsite alarm systems and video cameras to enable real-time alarm monitoring and the ability to verify alarm events via video.

"GuardRFIDs in-house designed and manufactured RTLS solutions meet stringent certification and standards needed by healthcare facilities. We are excited to partner with Interface, who can offer a broad array of physical security solutions for healthcare customers on our platform with their superior solution design, integration, and maintenance support," comments Kerry Brock, President & Chief Revenue Officer, GuardRFID.
