RFID is not just a contribution in the field of clothing. Its technology can be said to bring some simple and efficient ways in the fields of various industries, such as logistics, transportation, retail, business super, medical, military, asset management, personnel positioning, package tracking, and almost management. Some help!
1. improve the tracking of surgical instruments
Many hospitals are using this technology to track surgical instruments and other items to save time by eliminating manual counts, to ensure that each item is properly sterilized, to reduce the risk of infection and to better manage inventory.
2. improve patient safety
In addition to ensuring proper sterilization of equipment, RFID can also be used for the safe management of drugs in hospitals. The wristbands of RFID patients can also help ensure that patients receive appropriate doses of each drug at the appropriate time. In some institutions, RFID has even been used to track the location of dementia patients and prevent them from losing.
3. better supply chain management
Hospitals are facing increasing pressure to reduce costs. By using RFID to track inventory of supplies and medical equipment, suppliers can create solutions to trigger supply orders automatically according to real-time inventory information. This helps to avoid unnecessary orders and ensures that employees can access 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 and allow medical total to be easier to track and manage their devices in the medical structure, all of which have no bar code scan requirements. Therefore, it is more precise, simpler and more time saving.
5. improving asset management
Nurses and doctors waste their time looking for equipment. By linking RFID tags to wheelchairs, beds, IV pumps and other items, hospitals can locate and improve asset utilization. This saves time for the nursing staff and helps hospitals to avoid unnecessary waste of assets through more accurate asset counts, saving time and saving capital.
In addition, RFID can also be used in hospital contact history tracking control applications, and medical and epidemic prevention and government units can instantly and accurately grasp the dynamic information of the whole process, and prevent the recurrence of nosocomial infection control in the case of SARS.
