Hardware and software platform
NGEMS anchors are installed at fixed intervals throughout a hospital and work together to provide a complete area of coverage. Small hardware tags attached to medical devices and equipment are monitored by the anchors to determine their location.
This information is then made available to users through a cloud-based, web browser-accessible dashboard that visualizes asset location onto digitized floor maps, along with offering traditional list views. When an asset leaves the area of coverage, the dashboard alerts users to its last known location allowing an immediate response from equipment managers.
The hardware platform consists of wall-mounted anchors and tags attached to equipment.
NGEMS anchors work together in anchor arrays to scan electromagnetic frequencies and locate wireless devices. Easy to install and inconspicuous, the anchors attach to the wall or ceiling.
NGEMS tags are battery-powered, and are designed to function for 1 year and can be optimized further for 4+ years. NGEMS tags are attached to equipment so they can be located by the NGEMS anchors.

HOW DOES IT WORK
Detecting signals from NGEMS Tags, NGEMS anchors locate assets within a predefined area.
2. Collect and Visualize
Using ethernet or the available Wi-Fi network, the data is transmitted to the NGEMS cloud. It is then converted into readable lists and visualized onto digital floor maps.
The mapped locations are made available to equipment managers and authorized personnel through a secure, responsive web browser interface.
