  • Building a Smarter Hospital: Why Hospitals Are Rapidly Adopting RFID-Enabled Medical Cabinets
    Published June 2018
    RFID enables hospitals to wirelessly track items and individuals. From surgical instruments to blood samples, the technology is being used to create a network of smart devices throughout medical facilities. Jadak explains how RFID-enabled technologies allow for tracking consumables, identifying patients and personnel, monitoring medication for error prevention and anti-counterfeiting, and managing assets and devices. (7 pages)
  • 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)
  • Using RAIN RFID Technology to Fulfill the FDA's UDI Regulation and Improve the Health-Care Supply Chain
    Published May 2018
    The FDA passed a regulation in 2013 mandating the identification of medical devices using a UDI labeling system. Device manufacturers and hospitals are now realizing the benefits emerging from this mandate in terms of patient safety, clinical outcomes, operational efficiencies, cost savings and revenue capture. This paper, from VUEMED's Arnold Chazal and Lana Makhanik, illustrates how RAIN RFID can satisfy the UDI mandate and transform the health-care supply chain. (6 pages)
  • Hospital Supply Chain Survey
    Published April 2018
    Operating rooms require better supply chain management systems and analytics to help reduce costs and support patient safety, according to a new Cardinal Health survey of surgical personnel and hospital supply chain decision-makers. This document details the results of that survey. (31 pages)
  • The Missing Link in Health Care
    Published September 2017
    Medical professionals constantly seek new and better treatments for acute and chronic conditions, but patients don't always stick to treatment plans. Vodafone explains how the Internet of Things can help to solve this problem, and how connected medical devices encourage patients to follow treatment plans by providing them and their care providers with individualized health data. (8 pages)
  • Case Study: Tracking Medical Devices With RFID
    Published February 2017
    East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust (EKHUFT) implemented radio frequency identification technology to track medical assets at its three medical equipment libraries. The use of RFID has considerably reduced the amount of time clinical and engineering personnel spend searching for devices, while improving equipment utilization levels, increasing patient safety and helping to drive down the need for ad-hoc device hires.
