Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Technology
Radio frequency identification is the perfect service to guarantee the traceability of SPTs. The RFID tag is placed on each SPT and contains a unique ID to identify the specific pack being used, including item number, lot number and expiration date.
The signal from this ID can be picked up by a reader, which keeps track of inbound and outbound SPT movements and functions as real-time inventory control. This consumption information can be easily interfaced with MedStock for automatic replenishment and reporting purposes.
Through its automation, RFID offers you full product traceability and inventory tracking, more efficient purchasing processes and time savings.
Additional benefits of RFID include:
- Easier consumption reporting and efficient purchasing
- Precise analysis of the procedure cost per patient
- Improved picking time and faster preparation for surgery
- Increased staff satisfaction
- Reduced human error
- Cost savings.
Medline is proud to be one of the first companies to introduce this technology to surgical packs.
