Improve Tracking of Critical Healthcare Supplies with RFID Technology
Using RFID in healthcare can transform daily hospital operations. Radiofrequency identification (RFID) provides an efficient, cost-effective, and automated way to collect and manage information while also supporting best practices in patient care. RFID data collection can deliver benefits in a variety of areas such as:
- Equipment & Asset Tracking – Handheld and fixed RFID readers can allow for faster locating of critical healthcare assets. With RFID, facilities can monitor the movement of supplies and prevent lost assets, items sent to the wrong location, delays, or even errors in patient care.
- Work In Process & Compliance – Create a system of compliance for healthcare workflows such as autoclaving and medication administration. Trigger notifications when an item is sent to the wrong location or doesn’t follow a complaint process.
- Inventory Management – RFID reduces time, labor, and guesswork in managing items in inventory. RFID checkpoints provide instant verification of the items and quantities that enter and leave your facility, in addition to verifying that the right supplies have been received in your shipment.
Using RFID To Increase Visibility within Healthcare Equipment Tracking & Inventory Management
Hospitals cannot afford to miss a beat due to lost or misplaced inventory. By tracking healthcare equipment with RFID, hospitals can monitor and account for inventory as it moves throughout a facility. All the solution requires is:
- Fixed RFID Readers
- Passive RFID Tags
- RFID Asset Management Software
As a result, hospital staff can avoid losing expensive assets, or jeopardizing proper patient care by not having the right equipment, medicine, or supplies at hand.
