End-to-end visibility and traceability
Inefficient supply chains and logistics processes can create challenges throughout the whole healthcare system. Improving the processes not only leads to a reduction of inefficiencies and costs but most importantly frees resources to the patient care improving the overall services in the healthcare facility.
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a highly accurate identification technology that enables fully automatic and massive tracking of large volumes of products. Each RFID tag is distinguished by a unique serial identifier that is impossible to duplicate.
The technology offers a simple-to-use and efficient system for tracking and managing assets, patients, employees, medical devices, pharmaceutical products, and much more. It prevents loss, enables quick identification and location, enhance security, and maximise efficiency and emergency response. The technology also enables collaborative models such as vendor managed inventory.
RFID is particularly useful for end-to-end supply chain visibility and traceability and to combat grey and black market. Tagging every product, box, pallet, or shipping crate with an RFID label enables manifold opportunities in the DC as well as during transportation. Detailed RFID tracking and transparency can help save valuable time and operational costs.
RFID has an ever-growing list of use-cases, many of which have revolutionised industry processes from Asset Tracking to Cold Chain Management:
- Supply Chain Management
- Track & Trace
- Asset tracking
- Brand Protection
- Inventory Accuracy
- Cold Chain Management
