Representatives from hospitals and the healthcare industry report they have used RFID technology to adopt leaner supply chain practices associated with manufacturing to pare down healthcare costs and improve patient safety.
Here are a few areas of how RFID Technology improves the patients care:
Patient Care – Being able to correctly identify a patient and know where that patient is at all times results in improved safety for the patient.
Inventory Management – Being able to identify what exactly you have in your current inventory, and know where that inventory is being consumed greatly reduces out-of-stock situations. As more hospitals start programs to educate the medical and operational staff on the capabilities of using RFID technology, coupled with more ‘white papers” being published in the medical journals they read will also greatly help spread the word.
Asset Management – Locate mobile assets (people or objects) at all times results in better asset utilization management, while dramatically reducing the amount of time your staff spends searching for critical equipment.
RFID technology is a natural for greatly improving the operational efficiency of running hospitals while reducing costs and improving patient care and this is exactly why Xindeco Technology has developed RFID products to help facilitate these changes.
