East Midlands Ambulance Service Uses RFID to Track Equipment Quickly

The management of critical equipment aboard ambulances involves not only ensuring that each item intended to treat a patient is onboard when needed, but also providing scheduled maintenance and servicing to guarantee that if a piece of equipment is required during an emergency, it will function as expected. East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) NHS Trust is tracking onboard equipment within its ambulances via an RFID solution known as CheckedOK Medical. The solution, provided by CoreRFID, consists of EPC Gen 2 ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) passive RFID tags applied to medical equipment (such as resuscitators, ventilators and monitoring devices), as well as handheld readers to capture the ID numbers encoded to those tags, and software residing on CoreRFID's hosted server that stores data.
