World-class protection in healthcare environments
iC2 is a supplier and integrator of Xtag radio frequency identification (RFID) tagging systems. Xtag RFID is a leading technology for securing users of healthcare services which may be at risk. iC2 security consultants and engineers recommend the Xtag system wherever there is a requirement to protect people from certain threats specific to a healthcare environment.
Xtag is the most secure protection system on the market in the world for the prevention of:
- Abduction attempts of new born babies from maternity suites
- Being given the wrong baby – the mismatch of mothers with babies
- Risks to patients in paediatric wards
- Patient wandering and the risks to those with dementia conditions such as Alzheimer’s Disease
- Risks from confusion and uncertainty associated with head injuries
- Theft and misplacing valuable medical assets in busy hospital departments
- Failing CQC inspection due to services being ‘unsafe’ or otherwise falling short of an acceptable standard
Deployed as a ‘binary’ system in a maternity suite, and integrated with access control systems that unlock and lock doors, Xtag is able to ensure that a new-born cannot leave the maternity suite unless it is accompanied by its mother.
iC2 and Xtag RFID tagging solutions
The knowledge and skills of the team of security consultants and engineers at iC2 delivers world-class security solutions. Best of breed security technologies are integrated to form a security solution that meets the needs of your healthcare setting. Risk Assessment and analysis is fundamental to understanding how to design the system so that it is fit for purpose.
Integrating the Xtag RFID tagging system simplifies risk management in healthcare facilities and overcomes many of the drawbacks associated with manually operated electronic access control systems.
Xtag tags are tamper proof and activate alarms if slipped off, disguised, cut or are otherwise damaged. The primary healthcare environments that benefit are hospital units and care homes, reducing risks to babies, children, adults and vulnerable elderly people, as patients or service users.
Using the information gathered during the risk assessment, our security consultants design the solution that meets your needs. Xtag systems are deployed in line with manufacturers recommendations to ensure trouble-free use. iC2 support services are able to ensure reliable operation and are backed by an SLA (Service Level Agreement) to provide the peace of mind that any calls for support to rectify system issues are carried out in a time frame that suits the requirements of your healthcare organisation.
