Tracking Vendor Buys RFID Firm

Pittsburgh-based TeleTracking Technologies Inc., a vendor of bed, transport and patient flow management software, has acquired RadarFind Corp., Morrisville, N.C., which sells complementary technology. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

RadarFind sells the Real Time Location System for patient and asset tracking. The system uses radio frequency identification technology to read coded tags on equipment and patient wristbands.

The tags send location data to readers and ultimately to tracking software via RFID signals. The system's readers plug into electrical outlets, rather than connect to the hospital's Wi-Fi network. The readers communicate the location data to a collector box, situated in a data storage closet. Data is then sent over Ethernet cable to a dedicated server and displayed on computers or Web-enabled PDAs via the hospital's intranet.

TeleTracking will integrate its technologies with RadarFind's system, but will continue to work with other real time location system vendors a hospital has implemented or is considering implementing.

More information is available at teletracking.com and radarfind.com.
