Description: The SecurTRAK technology is a locating system for clinical settings and uses radio-frequency identification (RFID) badges and infrared technology to automate tracking and workflow patterns. This technology interfaces directly with Access Control to protect staff, patients, and/or assets. The technology has two parts: SecurTRAK Controller and SecurTRAK Display. SecurTRAK Controller receives raw tag messages and Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) values from the EIRIS Management Software. It triangulates the locations of tags in real-time and forwards to the SecurTRAK Displayer in the form of XY coordinates for display on VA supplied Autocad Floor and Site plans. SecurTRAK Controller also passes information on to other HIS systems to eliminate duplicate data entry.

The data collected by this technology is based on ID numbers of reusable tags and ID numbers of clinical locations. This technology implements a Microsoft Structured Query Language (SQL) Server database which maintains historical location and process event information that enables tracking reports and workflow analytics.
Technology/Standard Usage Requirements: Users must ensure their use of this technology/standard is consistent with VA policies and standards, including, but not limited to, VA Handbooks 6102 and 6500; VA Directives 6004, 6513, and 6517; and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards, including Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). Users must ensure sensitive data is properly protected in compliance with all VA regulations. Prior to use of this technology, users should check with their supervisor, Information Security Officer (ISO), Facility Chief Information Officer (CIO), or local Office of Information and Technology (OI&T) representative to ensure that all actions are consistent with current VA policies and procedures prior to implementation.
Section 508 Information: This technology has not been assessed by the Section 508 Office. The Implementer of this technology has the responsibility to ensure the version deployed is 508-compliant. Section 508 compliance may be reviewed by the Section 508 Office and appropriate remedial action required if necessary.
