Mobile terminals technology five benefits in the medical industry

Over time, RFID technology has proven its ability to provide a strong return on investment (ROI) in hospital settings. Based on Xerafy's experience with hospital clients around the world, these five benefits are key areas of improvement in ROI.

1. Labor saving

In the operating room, nurses and other staff spend time manually counting surgical instruments before and after each operation. While this process is time-consuming, it ensures patient safety (no instruments are inadvertently left in the body after the patient is sutured), ensures the correct tools are used for the procedure, and reduces asset loss. With RFID, these manual techniques are eliminated and hospitals can automatically track instruments through the sterilization process.

2. Asset utilization

Nursing staff typically spend time each week looking for vital equipment: wheelchairs, IV pumps, monitors, and other assets. Because these items are in high demand, departments sometimes hide or hoard them so they don't run out. This leads to inventory imbalances and asset "losses". By using RFID to detect asset locations, hospitals can make it easy for staff to find the closest needed equipment. This visibility also makes it easier to identify idle assets, thereby avoiding unnecessary asset purchases. Such tracking could also increase the utility of the FDA's Unique Device Identifier (UDI) requirement for tracking medical devices.

 3. Inventory management

 Using RFID to tag high-value inventory can improve the visualization of medicines, implants, surgical instruments, and other items that are difficult to track manually. Using specialized inventory software, hospitals can set replenishment levels so that when the solution senses that inventory has dropped below that point (using RFID data), new inventory can be ordered automatically. This saves time and ensures that the facility does not run short on important projects.

 4. Patient Safety

 By tracking the sterilization process of assets, including very small surgical instruments, RFID can help ensure that each item is properly cleaned. This helps reduce the types of postoperative infections that lead to poor outcomes and additional treatment. In some facilities, RFID is used to track the location of patients to help ensure that the correspondence between patients and locations is correct. In assisted living and other facilities, these tracking systems ensure that patients with dementia and other disabilities do not walk into unsafe areas.

 5. Pharmacy and Laboratory Operations

 Using RFID, hospitals can ensure that samples are properly connected to recertification and go through the correct procedures in the laboratory. Likewise, pharmaceuticals, especially highly controlled and regulated substances, can be counted and better managed under federal and state regulations. It also ensures that the drug is not counterfeit and is being administered to the correct patient.

RFID handhelds make inventory smarter and more accurate.

Because the traditional inventory work is done manually, it not only wastes a lot of human resources, but also is prone to errors and low efficiency due to the cumbersome operation. However, after adopting RFID technology, these problems can be solved well, so that the inventory work can be completed quickly and with high accuracy.

The information of the goods is read through the RFID handheld device and compared with the goods in the system, so that the quantity, type, warranty period and other information of the goods can be easily checked. Compared with traditional inventory work, it not only saves a lot of human resources and reduces labor costs, but also improves work efficiency and accuracy, and reduces corporate losses. Adjusting the cargo position through the management system does not require manual adjustment, which is more intelligent and accurate.

Compared with traditional barcode scanners, RFID handhelds overcome the following problems:

1. The barcode cannot be scanned normally when the light conditions are too poor;

2. Only one barcode can be scanned at a time, which is inefficient;

3. The barcode label is easy to be damaged or fall off, if this happens, the scanner will be difficult to identify;

4. The barcode scanner can only read barcodes when it is at a close distance and there is no object blocking.

RFID is translated into electronic tag in Chinese, also known as radio frequency identification technology. With the continuous progress of society and the continuous development of science and technology, electronic tags have been widely used in the daily life of modern people. Short-range RFID products are not afraid of harsh environments such as oil stains and dust pollution, and can replace barcodes in such environments, such as tracking objects on the factory assembly line. Long-distance radio frequency identification products are mostly used in traffic, and the identification distance can reach tens of meters, such as automatic toll collection or identification of vehicle identity.

1. In the retail industry, the application of barcode technology enables tens of thousands of commodity types, prices, origins, batches, shelves, inventory, sales and other links to be managed in an orderly manner;

2. The automatic radio frequency identification technology of vehicles is adopted to avoid the phenomenon of vehicles queuing for customs clearance in road, bridge, parking lot and other toll collection places, reducing the waste of time, thus greatly improving the efficiency of transportation and the capacity of transportation facilities;

3. In the automated production line, all aspects of the entire product production process are placed under strict monitoring and management;

4. In harsh environments such as dust, pollution, cold, heat, etc., the application of long-distance RFID technology improves the inconvenience of truck drivers having to get off and go through procedures;

5. In the operation and management of buses, the automatic identification system accurately records the arrival and departure time of vehicles at each station along the line, providing real-time and reliable information for vehicle scheduling and whole-process operation management.

In addition, the technical application of RFID radio frequency identification electronic tags is very extensive. At present, the typical application scope of RFID technology: animal chips, access control, air parcel identification, document tracking management, parcel tracking and identification, animal husbandry, logistics management, mobile commerce , Product anti-counterfeiting, sports timing, ticket management, car chip anti-theft device, parking lot control, production line automation, material management, etc.
