RFID Technology for Asset Tracking
US Med-Equip is changing the way hospitals manage their equipment by tagging medical equipment with passive RFID tags to track equipment without disturbing patients.
How does it work?
- RFID readers can locate tagged equipment up to 25 feet away.
- The RFID reader emits radio waves that read the RFID tag and relay equipment information to the hand-held scanner.
- Patients experience minimal disruptions as the waves bounce under closed doors, around corners and through walls.
- The RFID scanner and tags do not interfere with other medical equipment and systems.
How does it benefit my hospital?
- Quickly locate equipment that may be potentially missing, recalled or in need of preventative maintenance.
- Increase utilization of hospital equipment leading to reduced rental needs.
- Locate equipment which may be hidden from sight, such as in a drawer, closet, under a bed, locker, etc.
- Fast identification of “wanted” equipment
- Helps with PM compliance
