Hospitals and emergency personnel in Long Beach, California will implement an electronic patient tracking system (EPTS) to improve the availability of patient information.

Raytheon’s EPTS will help California’s emergency and medical staff in triage, treatment and the transportation of mass-casualty victims by providing important patient information to all parties involved, the company said.

The system identifies critical patient information through barcode and radio frequency identification tags, which is then transferred to a secure Raytheon-hosted database, Raytheon said.

Hospital staff can access this database to check a patient’s location, medical status and personal information.

This data will continue to be collected until the patient is admitted, discharged or moved to another hospital, the company said.
