RFID has not only made contributions in the field of clothing, its technology can be said to have brought some simple and efficient methods in various industries, such as logistics, transportation, retail, supermarket, medical, military, asset management, personnel positioning, parcel tracking, almost need to manage the place, it can bring some help!
1. Improve surgical instrument tracking, many hospitals are using this technology to track surgical instruments and other items, so as to save time by eliminating manual counting, ensure that each item is properly sterilized to reduce the risk of infection, and better manage inventory. 2. Improve patient safety
In addition to ensuring the correct sterilization of devices, RFID can also be used to safely manage drugs in hospitals using “smart” cabinets. RFID patient wristbands can also help ensure that patients receive the right dose of each drug at the right time. In some institutions, RFID has even been used to track the location of dementia patients to prevent them from getting lost.
3. Better supply chain management, hospitals are facing increasing pressure to reduce costs. By using RFID to track the inventory of supplies and medical equipment, suppliers can create solutions that automatically trigger supply orders based on real-time inventory information. This can help avoid unnecessary orders and ensure that employees have access to the materials they need.
4. UDI compliance: FDA requires medical device manufacturers to uniquely identify medical devices to help simplify tracking and recall management. By using RFID tags for UDI applications, manufacturers can maintain compatibility while allowing healthcare providers to more easily track and manage their devices within the healthcare structure, all of which have no bar code line of sight scanning requirements. So it’s more accurate, simpler and time-saving.
5. Improve asset management, nurses and doctors waste time looking for equipment every week. By connecting RFID tags to wheelchairs, beds, IV pumps and other items, hospitals can position them and improve asset utilization. This saves time for nursing staff, and can help hospitals avoid unnecessary asset waste through more accurate asset count, which saves time and capital!
In addition, RFID can also be used for hospital contact history tracking and control applications. Medical epidemic prevention and government units can immediately and accurately grasp the dynamic information of the whole processing process, so as to prevent the recurrence of nosocomial infection control problems similar to SARS.
