  • Building a Smarter Hospital: How RFID Can Reliably Eliminate Retained Surgical Items Left in Patients After Surgery
    Published June 2018
    Surgical items are sometimes left inside patients following an operation. Retained items can be instruments or tools, but the most common are sponges, which are used extensively during surgery. This can have potentially harmful and life-threatening consequences for patients. Jadak explains how RFID can address this ongoing problem. (6 pages)
  • Bar Codes Versus RFID for Work-in-Process Tracking
    Published January 2018
    This white paper, from BellHawk Systems, outlines when radio frequency identification and bar codes are each preferable to monitor WIP. With bar codes, a user must perform scanning, typically using a mobile computer equipped with an integrated bar-code scanner, whereas with RFID, scanning takes place automatically. BellHawk explores the merits of each type of tracking in manufacturing organizations, with an emphasis on the needs of organizations that make custom and semi-custom products. (5 pages)
  • Tracking Medical Devices: The Role of Active and Passive RFID as Part of an Effective Medical Device Management System
    Published February 2017
    Clinical and medical engineering teams across the United Kingdom and worldwide face a daily battle to locate equipment, while legal, regulatory and policy forces are driving the adoption of an effective medical device management system. RFID technology is highly effective in managing medical devices, providing a fast and accurate method of capturing asset data and automatically tracking devices' locations. This white paper, written by Ceri Anstee, provides an overview of the reasons driving and supporting the adoption of RFID technology, and explains how RFID works and can be applied in a health-care setting.

  • Case Study: Theatre Kitting With RFID
    Published October 2016
    Ordering and preparing materials for scheduled and emergency procedures is a key process that takes up a large proportion of hospitals' clinical time. By pioneering the use of RFID technology to centralize and streamline the management of theatre supplies, Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Trust (CUH) has freed up time for clinical personnel, optimized stock holding and minimized waste. Harland Simon explains how its RFID Discovery Inventory system tracks items used for operations with passive RFID labels and interfaces with CUH's inventory database, enabling the hospital to accurately record usage for each operation and ensure reliable inventory replenishment.

  • Plugging the RFID Implementation Gap and Improving ROI
    Published May 2016
    There is an implementation gap in RFID installations across most sectors, caused by the current model for tagging assets to be tracked. The Tagging Team's Martin Parsons explains how immediate implementation fills in that gap, improving a company's return on investment and enabling it to provide a complete solution.
  • Strategies for Ensuring Integrity for Medical Tissues and Devices
    Published April 2016
    Recent advances in medical device technology, surgical procedures and tissue preservation are revolutionizing the health-care industry. However, this expanded capability requires an equally sophisticated system to track devices, prosthetics and tissues as they move through the supply chain; a mistake or shortfall can have serious consequences. Terso Solutions's Joe Pleshek explains how RFID technologies can offer near-real-time item-level visibility, safely and securely. (9 pages)
  • The Recurring Costs of Passive RFID: Hidden Costs that Hurt Your Business and Your Budget
    Published April 2015
    Passive RFID solutions may appear less expensive than active RFID if only infrastructure costs are compared. But RF Code explains why that is only a small part of the total cost of ownership of an asset-management solution. When the total lifespan of a managed asset is taken into account, it becomes clear that active RFID is the more affordable solution and offers significant benefits that passive RFID cannot. (4 pages)
  • IT Asset Management: By the Numbers
    Published June 2014
    The key to the effective and efficient management of an organization's data center lies with the ability to capture and comprehend a comprehensive picture of which assets exists, where each is located and how each item is connected to other assets. Asset Vue discusses the critical, yet often neglected, process of inventorying and auditing all assets within a data center, and highlights the return on investment that can be achieved from deploying a passive RFID solution.
