MyChild® is an electronic system designed to track the location of infants and pediatric patients and prevent abductions.
In a Basic MyChild System, patients wear RFID-enabled security tags that communicate wirelessly on an FCC-compliant radio frequency that does not interfere with hospital equipment.
MyChild™ tags continually communicate their presence and locations to the server via receivers that are placed throughout the protected area. This allows users to track patients throughout a protected area and receive notifications of security tag tampering and low battery. If a tagged patient approaches a controlled exit, door locks engage if closed, or trigger an alarm if open.
MyChild™ system architecture is stable, available, and redundant. Disruptions on the hospital IT network will not hinder egress protection on infant or pediatric units.
Events, alarms, and videos are all displayed on workstations through the MyChild software.
MyChild™ is one of a number of RTLS (Real Time Locating System) applications for healthcare from McRoberts Technologies.
