What is BabyMatch?

BabyMatch is an Active RFID/RTLS Safety, Security and Visibility Solution that helps hospitals prevent baby abductions and unintentional baby mismatching in maternity units.

BabyMatch provides continuous supervision of each baby by automatically tracking the real-time location of the infant from the time of delivery to the time of discharge.

Elpas Triple-Technology is recognized as the optimal, approach to RTLS that best delivers precise real-time location awareness with the accuracy and flexibility that today’s healthcare facilities require.

Elpas’ bestof-breed RTLS methodology employs continuous Radio Frequency (RF) communication for cost-effective real-time zone location, infrared (IR) communication for explicit room and sub-room tracking accuracy and user adjustable Low Frequency (LF) for instant doorway and pinpoint locations.

Only Elpas’ fieldproven Triple-Technology ensures reliable, accurate real-time location awareness in challenging healthcare environments.

At the time of birth the infant is issued an Elpas Active RFID Infant Protection Bracelet, which is placed on the baby’s ankle and can later be adjusted should the baby lose weight before discharge.

The tag emits real-time ID and location tracking data about the infant down to explicit bed-level precision without causing EMF interference to hospital equipment.

Should an attempt occur to move the protected infant from the secured area without approval or an authorized escort,
the bracelet will trigger the BabyMatch system to alert personnel of the security threat.

Elpas BabyMatch provides a mother-baby match confirmation feature.

The mother is given an Elpas Active RFID wrist tag, which is paired with the infant’s Active RFID bracelet provided at the time of birth.

During the patient’s stay and upon discharge, staff and parents can confirm a correct mother-baby match.

The BabyMatch Solution also features flexible baby escort options, easy to use software and the option of matching multiple infant tags to one mother tag to accomodate multiple births.
