Description: Code Alert is a Radio-frequency identification (RFID) security system designed to track the physical location of individuals. This technology is designed for infant and pediatric security as well as for the monitoring of flight-risk patients. This technology interfaces with proprietary transmitters worn on the patient`s body and provides perimeter-based exit monitoring of the facility. Additionally, this software is designed to assist staff members in providing patient care by integrating multiple safety solutions into one platform, enhancing workflows, providing collaborative resources, and allowing for customization to fit an organization`s specific needs.

This technology has two editions: Standard and Enterprise. Both are covered in this entry.

This technology stores data in a proprietary Microsoft Structured Query Language (SQL) Server database.

This entry covers the Desktop Edition of this technology and not any mobile versions. Please note that the implementation of mobile technology applications that operate on Mobile Operating Systems must be reviewed and approved by the Mobile Technology and Endpoint Security Engineering Team:
