(Via RFID Journal) Mark Roberti writes, Hospitals are discovering that RFID is the right prescription for many problems. Mark writes,When deployed properly, RFID can deliver many benefits simultaneously. In the warehouse, RFID can be deployed to increase inventory visibility, reduce labor costs and cut shipping and receiving errors all at the same time. The Jacobi Medical Center in New York City is using RFID wristbands and tablet PCs to reduce manual data entry, improve data accuracy and give staff more time to tend to patients - all while cutting. When fully deployed, the system should save Jacobi $1 million annually. Other hospitals are using RFID to track assets - wheel chairs, defribulators, incubators, even scalpels—and to keep patients safe. As the technology matures and spreads, hospitals will be able to use RFID in their complex supply chains to ensure they are ordering and receiving the right amounts of bandages, sutures, gauze and other goods.
