Tags, Radiofrequency Identification, Asset

Definition : Tags containing device information designed for asset identification using radiofrequency (RF) signals. These tags frequently consist of electronic chips with antennae that can transmit data using RF electromagnetic radiation. RF tags may include batteries to power an attached radio transmitter (active tag); other tags work with the RF energy supplied by a location device (passive tags). Some tags include batteries only to supply energy to the internal circuitry or to attached sensors (semi-active tags) but not to generate RF signals. Patient identification tags are usually attached to the surface of assets (e.g., surgical instruments, pharmaceuticals, laboratory devices). Dedicated tags (i.e., chips) intended for sensoring the condition in or around the device (e.g., temperature, humidity) are also available. The tags are used mainly to locate assets, to facilitate inventories, and to track devices and/or the conditions in the environment during asset storage and/or transportation.
