AUSTIN, Texas, July 9, 2024 – HID, a worldwide leader in trusted identity solutions, today announced it has acquired Vizzia Technologies (Vizzia), a leading provider of hardware-agnostic, full-service real-time location systems (RTLS) platforms designed for healthcare and hospital applications. The addition of Vizzia expands HID’s offering and relevance in the Healthcare RTLS space, including support for asset management and tracking, as well as other use cases designed to meet the unique needs of healthcare facilities. 

“Welcoming Vizzia and their innovative RTLS platform allows us to help healthcare professionals enhance the patient, visitor, and staff experience,” said Björn Lidefelt, EVP and Head of HID. “Thanks to this acquisition, our RTLS portfolio is now better equipped to empower hospitals to optimize their layered security approach and improve overall care.” 

Vizzia offers a robust RTLS platform that is built with clinicians in mind. The platform includes an innovative asset management and tracking solution, which includes a modern user interface that tracks real-time location data and provides insights on equipment utilization, equipment inventory and purchasing decisions, as well as maintenance requirements. Vizzia also provides on-site managed services. 

The platform offers best-in-class asset management and tracking capabilities, helping healthcare facilities – including leading hospital systems – save money and improve patient safety. Vizzia’s award-winning solutions allow users to find equipment quickly, eliminate lost and stolen equipment, prevent hospital-acquired infections, and help healthcare facilities rent and buy only the equipment they truly need. 

In addition to its asset management and tracking capabilities, the addition of Vizzia provides additional solutions to HID’s Healthcare RTLS portfolio, including environmental monitoring, patient workflow, and hand hygiene compliance. 

Marc Bielmann, SVP and Head of IdentificationTechnologies, HID, said, “Incorporating Vizzia into our Identification Technologies business further demonstrates our commitment to being a top contender in the Healthcare RTLS space. This acquisition is yet another exciting step in our journey to enabling safe and efficient workplaces using real-time location data for people and things.” 

Founded in 2005 and headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, Vizzia is now part of HID’s Identification Technologies Business Area. The Vizzia solution will merge into HID’s Internet of Things Services (IOTS) Business Unit and benefit from HID’s sales and other global functions to support its offering. 

“At Vizzia, we have built a strong presence in providing outstanding technologies and services to our customers in the Healthcare space,” said Andrew Halasz, CEO, Vizzia. “We are excited to begin our next chapter with HID and look forward to combining forces to increase our market presence and leadership in this vertical that touches everyone’s lives.”
