Aionex developed the Advanced Patient Response Platform (APRP), a fully integrated software solution that communicates and documents information from various sources to specific personnel for delivering patient care and services.  This tracking system allows hospitals to monitor patients and staff and to report timed events to ensure efficient operations and delivery of high-quality patient care.  The APRP is used in emergency rooms, operating rooms and intensive care units.  SkyeTek's embedded RFID readers provide Aionex's APRP with the information it needs to monitor patient care, authenticate hospital staff members and track process efficacy.
