RFID access points are installed at strategic locations to monitor the entry and exit of tags within a zone. They also have the capability to detect the direction of a tag’s movement. While the initial investment in RFID infrastructure can be substantial, the tags themselves are relatively low-cost, making it feasible to track items in large volumes.

How RFID RTLS Systems Work

Passive RFID systems harness electromagnetic fields to detect and monitor tags affixed to items or people. Their adaptability allows for seamless incorporation into current healthcare operations, such as inventory control and patient registration, where tags or labels are routinely printed and can be effortlessly upgraded to include RFID capabilities.
