Healthcare is considered one of the fastest growing business and largest service industries in the world. To cope with this expansion, healthcare industry must change its traditional operations and deploy a new information system to manage unpredictable processes and supply accurate responses in time.
Hospitals can tag patients, check reports and ensure timely treatment by reviewing information on RFID tags. They can also tag and track all medical devices and equipment. Using RFID, all assets in hospitals can be tagged and tracked in seconds.
Management of medical acticles – Fast tracking of mobile medical articles ensures a better use of them, which reduces lesses and, consequently, new acquisitions while considerably reducing the amount of time wasted by staff searching for equipment;
Patient care – Correct identification of patients and their location at all times may lead to increased security (for example in case of patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease). Better management of hospital beds within a medical unit.
Management of drugs and dangerous medical substances – Drug traceability is fundamental to eliminate counterfiet drugs. A significant decrease in the number of errors in patient medication administration can be achieved through quick and accurate drug reading, thus also ensuring the checking of prescribed dosage for a patient.
Inventory Management – Early identification of inventory items and rapid inventory achievement may result in the elimination of overstocked or low stock situations and optimization of current inventory etc. With the use of RFID technology, it can help managing the supplies.
