Hospital equipment tracking, as well as patient tracking, are essential for safe and proper management of resources and treatments in a hospital. For hospital equipment, RFID tags can be used to track inventory, locate assets, follow maintenance cycles, and optimize equipment usage across the hospital for different procedures. Enhanced visibility and traceability through RFID help in reduction in loss of equipment allowing hospitals to stock lower levels of this equipment and tools.

RFID Technology plays a crucial role in the pharma & health-care industry, it includes equipment tracking, people identification and tracking, medical report monitoring, medicine tracking, and supply chain.

Benefits of using RFID in hospital equipment tracking:

  • RFID is an asset visibility solution to make the work process simpler. By tracking and identifying assets through RFID hospitals can make it easier for staff to find idle equipment and avoid the purchase of unnecessary capital.
  • RFID tags on hospital equipment help in keeping an account of inventories. RFID provides improved visibility of pharmaceuticals, implants, surgical instruments, and other items that can be difficult to track manually. Keeping count of inventory saves time and ensures that facilities never run low on important items.
  • RFID tags make it easier for medical equipment to be tracked and traced, enabling hospital employees to easily locate equipment when it is required urgently, thereby enhancing the safety of patients.
