RFID Technology in Healthcare

RFID technology is ideally suited to help all healthcare companies improve their operational efficiencies while reducing costs to patients and improving the services delivered to patients.

In a recent market research study the tremendous opportunities for implementing RFID technology is clearly demonstrated by the following facts:

  • Only ten percent of hospitals have been actively considering RFID to improve their operations.
  • The idea is that by using resources more effectively, hospital staff can spend less time running around trying to find medical supplies and more time with patient care.
  • Hospitals historically have been so focused on the priority of saving lives that they have been slow to adopt technology that saves money.

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.

  • 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 CodeTagRFID has developed RFID products to help facilitate these changes.

Representatives from hospitals and the healthcare industry illustrated how they have used the RFID technology to adopt leaner supply chain practices associated with manufacturing to pare down costs and improve safety.

Here are a few areas of how RFID Technology improves the patients care:

  • 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.
  • 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.

  • RFID technology is a natural for greatly improving the operational efficiency of running hospitals while reducing costs and improving patient care and Xindeco Technology has developed RFID products to help facilitate these changes.
