Interface Launches Solutions for Infant Security, Wandering Patient Management
Interface partnered with GuardRFID, a provider of real-time locating systems (RTLS), to implement the new security and management systems.
EARTH CITY, Mo. — Interface Security Systems, a managed service provider, announces an expanded suite of Personal Protection Monitoring services that use active RFID tags to protect infants from abduction, prevent mother/infant mismatches and monitor memory care patients.
Personal Protection Monitoring was first launched in 2020 with a focus on protecting at-risk lone and mobile workers in retail, restaurant and hospitality brands. With this latest launch, Interface adds healthcare solutions to its Personal Protection Monitoring portfolio.
This will include the following new service offerings:
- Infant security system for newborn infants in birthing centers and hospitals to prevent abductions and accidental pairing of the infant with the wrong parent.
- Wander management system for patients in hospitals, behavioral health facilities and memory care centers.
Interface has partnered with GuardRFID, a provider of real-time locating systems (RTLS), to implement the infant security and wander management systems. Interface will deploy GuardRFID’s RFID active tags along with the RTLS, and integrate the solution with onsite alarm systems and video cameras for real-time alarm management and the capability to provide video verification of alarm events.
“GuardRFID’s 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,” says Kerry Brock, president and chief revenue officer, GuardRFID.
“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,” says Brian Garavuso, CTO, Interface Security Systems.
