Inventory Control (Tracking) Solutions
In the retail market, radio frequency identification (RFID) has already proven that
it can reduce costs. RFID can provide a
simple, cost-effective solution that allows tracking of supplies from your
receiving dock to your storage rooms to your supply stations. This is accomplished by placing a passive RFID tag on your inventory
cases and items and automatically gathering the location of an item each time
it passes through various areas. In the
future, most items will already be tagged before you receive them.
By increasing the efficiency of the supply chain and knowing exactly what supplies
you really have, hospitals can achieve many of the same benefits that the
retail industry is experiencing such as:
lost and stolen supplies
the rate of non-charged consumables
the time staff spends searching for inventory
the utilization of current inventory
inventory replenishment within your facility
inventory to be ordered
RFID can not only increases the visibility of your inventory but also identify each
item. While bar codes can identify the
type of product, RFID can identify each individual item. In addition, RFID tags provide additional data storage.
Healthcare organizations can experience all of the same benefits of inventory
tracking currently proven in the retail market.
