  • 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.
  • Best IT Asset Management Through Smart RFID Software
    Published December 2013
    Art Barton, RFTrail's director of RFID strategies, discusses how CIOs, finance managers, IT managers and others responsible for managing the IT assets of their organizations are experiencing the pressure to cut costs, enhance IT asset security, increase regulatory compliance and improve their IT asset-auditing procedures. In response to these growing demands, organizations are increasingly turning to RFID-enabled IT asset-tracking and management systems to help achieve these goals.
  • Better Data-Center IT Asset Management Through Smart RFID Software
    Published December 2013
    Art Barton, RFTrail's director of RFID strategies, explains how IT asset managers and facilities managers at data centers worldwide are being challenged to cut costs, increase regulatory compliance of their IT assets, and improve auditing procedures. This white paper also outlines how, in response to these growing demands, organizations are turning to RFID-enabled IT asset-tracking and -management systems for innovative and effective ways in which to achieve these goals.

  • Active Solutions for Active Environments: Achieving ROI through Automated Physical IT Asset Tracking
    Published September 2013
    Tracking and managing physical IT assets is a never-ending challenge. The level of difficulty and expense increases dramatically as an organization becomes larger, more complex and distributed across multiple sites and geographic locations. Understanding the source of the costs associated with physically tracking such assets is the key to streamlining the process—an automated solution for performing periodic audits of sensitive IT equipment is the only effective way to achieve a time-independent verification of asset records. This white paper, from RF Code, explains the distinction between tracking enterprise assets and merely collecting inventories of equipment and related static location data, and why this is critical to any company seeking to implement an IT asset-management program.
