Intelliguard® RFID Solutions
Intelliguard® RFID Solutions for critical pharmaceutical inventory are key to ensuring patient safety
Using RFID, error prone tasks such as manual counting and item-level scanning are eliminated. RFID is emerging in healthcare because it is low cost and creates multiple efficiencies. Using RFID allows you to reduce process steps, optimize labor resources, avoid errors and enhance data collection. Often, RFID in hospital pharmacies is driven by greater emphasis on patient safety. RFID automation in the hospital pharmacy supports automation of manual error prone tasks that put patients at risk. Hospital administrators are also finding that RFID saves thousands of dollars in optimizing labor, reducing supply waste and lowering carrying costs.
MEPS Real-Time, Inc. currently offers a suite of Intelliguard®RFID Solutions that employ radio frequency identification (RFID) technology to manage pharmaceutical inventory:
- The Intelliguard® Kit & Tray Management System uses advanced RFID technology to automate medication kit and tray replenishment for faster processing and reduced errors. The System can inventory more than 150 items in seconds, providing details as to what’s missing, what’s expired and what’s soon-to-expire in medication kits, trays, tackle boxes and fanny packs/duffel bags.
- The Intelliguard® Inventory Management System offers RFID- enabled Controlled Temperature Cabinets (CTCs) for high-value, critical-dose pharmaceuticals. By automatically updating cabinet inventory each time the door is opened and closed, pharmacy managers can quickly identify expired or recalled medication and detect shortages to avoid stock-outs.
