Great article by Claire from RFID Journal on the work we’ve been doing in the Transfusion Medicine supply chain. Read about it below, and check out www.s3edge.com/healthcare.php for more information.
An interesting snippet from the piece that captures the essence of the overall solution:
The consortium found that the use of RFID during the pilot resulted in a 33 percent reduction in reconciliation issues or misplaced products at the blood-donation points, as well as an 87 percent decrease in reconciliation issues or misplaced products when blood arrived at BloodCenter of Wisconsin’s headquarters. In addition, efficiency during final inventory check-in at the BloodCenter of Wisconsin increased by 63 percent. At the hospital, product visibility was improved and the correct blood product was delivered to patient bedsides without a single error, for a total of 144 transfusions.
Cheers and Happy Thanksgiving!
