Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

Application Overview

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags are intelligent bar codes that use radio waves to send data, at distances of 25 feet and more, to a networked system that identifies, tracks, and counts whatever items they are attached to.

In 2008, the first RFID-based system was approved for use in the operating room. The system aims to reduce or eliminate the most common and costly surgical "never event" - unintentionally retained foreign objects in surgery. The system automatically provides a device-reconciled count by directly matching the unique identifier on each tagged item that enters into and out of the surgical case.

RFID-based systems can also be utilized to track and monitor controlled drugs within a hospital environment. Scanners within the locked storage case can not only detect what drugs are being removed, but also recognize the individual removing the drug.

TConneX develops middleware that integrate this recognition technology with varied back-end applications, for example those applications that maintain inventory levels.


Electronic Health Record (EHR)

Application Overview

Electronic Health Records or EHRs are a record in digital format that include a whole range of data about an individual in comprehensive or summary form, including demographics, medical history, medication and allergies, immunization status, laboratory test results, radiology images, vital signs, personal stats like age and weight, and billing information.

Its purpose can be understood as a complete record of patient encounters that allows the automation and streamlining of the workflow in health care settings and increases safety through evidence-based decision support, quality management, and outcomes reporting.

Historical paper-based clinical notes will typically be scanned and stored as a retrievable image within the EHR, requiring the provider to review many pages of notes to retrieve a piece of information.

TConneX Solution

TConneX has implemented semantic digital scanning technology that allows free form data to be recognized in terms of content and meaning, allowing it to be placed directly into the database structure.

Training

TConneX facilitates the delivery of digital course content for occupational and professional training programs.

Application Overview

Most Federal agencies have a Training & Employee Development organization whose role is to provide occupational and professional development courses to the employee base. Learning Management Systems (LMS) - software applications for the administration, documentation, tracking, and reporting of training programs, classroom and online events, e-learning  programs, and training content - are being utilized to manage these programs and their associated resources.

A Learning Content Management System (LCMS) is a related technology to the LMS in that it is focused on the development, management and publishing of the content that will typically be delivered via an LMS. Course developers may create, store, reuse, manage, and deliver digital learning content from a central object repository - it provides developers, authors, instructional designers, and subject matter experts the means to create and re-use e-learning content and reduce duplicated development efforts.

TConneX Solution

All of these training systems rely on a Content Management System behind the applications to facilitate access to the underlying digital course content.

Logistics

TConneX middleware facilitates innovative logistics applications.

Application Overview

Libraries have utilized RFID technology to increase efficiency and reduce cost, as well as provide security for the range of different media they offer. During scheduled inventory scans, RFID systems can be utilized to very rapidly scan all media offered within the shelves, transmit this information back to an inventory management system, and identify items which are out of proper order.

The addition of stationary RFID scanners within the shelving areas can also provide the real-time ability to alert the library staff when a media asset is misfiled, thus minimizing customer dissatisfaction when an "on hand" item cannot be found.

TConneX Solution

TConneX develops middleware that integrate this recognition technology with back-end inventory, or in the case of libraries, shelf management systems.
