Medical lease provider upgrades lease tracking management system with RFID
Equipment rental providers are leveraging RFID tracking technology and rental management software systems to gain insight into channel and consignment inventory. The technology and process enables consignment inventory management, lease management, dynamic query of consignment goods and even real-time visibility of warehouses.
Efficient medical lease management system services are essential for medical institutions with various instruments such as orthoses, implants, endoscopes, laparoscopes, surgical instruments and other medical equipment. Equipment manufacturers need to know at all times which instruments are in each sales representative’s consignment inventory, where the inventory is physically located, and how to utilize it efficiently and improve inventory utilization. Many enterprises are looking for new solutions that can make the whole process more time-saving, efficient and less error-prone.
The core is that the RFID electronic tags that can be used in the medical sterilization environment allow comprehensive tracking on site and complete automatic data collection. Passive RFID electronic tags fit seamlessly from warehouse storage to packing shipments and aseptic processing (SPD) processes, professional designs can be used to install on all types of metal and plastic pallets and containers.
Medical rental systems with real-time visibility have integrated solutions and support consignment inventory management functions, such as these major multinational companies: SPM surgical instrument management system from STERIS; LoanerLink rental management system from Censis Technologies; SpaceTRAX system from Stanley Healthcare. By incorporating tracking capabilities into their workflows, these industry leaders, medical suppliers can directly benefit from streamlining field inventory and its location and identification.
The real-time medical management system built by medical institutions using RFID technology has obvious advantages
The benefits of digitalization also extend to healthcare facilities, where increased asset availability contributes to improved patient outcomes due to better surgical case coordination, scheduling between institutions and providers, shorter pre-procedure notification readiness times, and enhanced overall accountability.
1. Manage rental equipment and medical devices in the medical aseptic processing department (SPD): deal with complex disinfection and sterilization environments, a wide variety of equipment and devices, and increase management efficiency and accuracy.
2. Operating room rental system: The operating room will focus on the scheduling system of equipment and instruments, that is, to obtain the correct equipment in the correct room on time, improve the operating efficiency of the operating room, and reduce the difficulty of management. Each set of instruments prepared for a specific case is labeled to help shorten the procedure preparation process and ensure patient safety.
3. RFID for surgical tray and container management: RFID tracking equipment is in the form of passive UHF RFID tags, professional design is more suitable for installation on surgical borrowing trays, containers and boxes. RFID tags are made of 316 stainless steel, engineering plastics and other medical-grade materials, which are shock-resistant and safe to process, and can be used in disinfection and sterilization processes.
Xerafy has developed Roswell Autoclavable, a dedicated autoclavable label for medical sterilization environments, and Gamma XSKIN flexible labels for medical supply chains that can withstand medical Gamma rays and electron beams. Roswell Autoclavable is a sturdy metal tag with good 180-degree multi-directional reading performance. It can be used to track medical equipment, containers and trays. It has a strong installation solution and high-strength label performance. It can withstand repeated disinfection procedures and handling. It also has a wide range of uses in industrial fields other than medical treatment.
Medical Lease Tracking: Barcode or RFID?
Medical device manufacturers are no strangers to the medical supply chain, and many are considering upgrading their tracking solutions to RFID. The technology is replacing first-generation rental and consignment program tracking solutions that used barcodes, QR codes, and other camera/computer vision technologies.
Several operational advantages of RFID solutions:
RFID enables real-time inventory tracking, further realizing inventory automation;
And it can be fully integrated with operating room, sterilization processing SPD and other medical sites to provide more complete data accuracy and seamless access to the medical management system.
In addition, the unique identifier provided by the RFID tag complies with the UDI (Unique Identification of Medical Devices) standard, enabling complete traceability from the manufacturer to the patient.
