Nowadays, IOT is in the stage of rapid development, and RFID application has penetrated into most industries.
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), is a new type of communication technology. It can identify specific targets by radio signals and read & write related data without establishing mechanical or optical contacts. RFID technology has been widely used in medical, retail, manufacturing, logistics, public transport and other industries. It has brought great convenience to people’s lives, and has also made a qualitative leap in the work management efficiency of enterprises.
In the field of medical treatment, traditional hospitals often adopt manual recording for information collection,which is easy to cause errors and confusion in information recording, resulting in property losses and medical accidents. In view of the above drawbacks, more and more hospitals are beginning to consider the implementation of hospital information development, using RFID technology to maximize the deficiencies and inherent shortcomings of hospitals, strengthen the management of patients, medical staff and hospital materials, and improve the level of comprehensive medical services in hospitals. Today,we are going to explain some application of RFID technology in medical material management, so that we can understand the power of RFID technology for the medical industry more deeply.
1. Application of Hospital Warehousing Management
When medical personnel carry out the storage of hospital materials, they collect the basic information such as the name, specification, manufacturer, batch number, production date and effective date of the materials to write a RFID which is to be sticked to the materials to classify the management, and finally store the materials in the warehouse. When materials need to be used or checked, medical staff can use the handheld terminal PDA to read the RFID tags of materials, which can effectively count the quantity of materials, materials use records, whether there is expiration or not, and improve the efficiency of material management. Through the use of RFID technology, the management of materials in hospitals has become easier, the use of materials and procurement process in hospitals has been further improved, the use of expired materials has been prevented, and medical accidents caused by human negligence have been effectively curbed.
2. Application of Hospital Equipment Management
In the management of medical equipment in traditional hospitals, it is often recorded manually. The consequent equipment loss problems occur from time to time, the protection and check of hospital equipment information are also difficult. By using RFID, attaching RFID tags with detailed information on medical equipment and reading the RFID tags through handheld terminal PDA, medical staff can understand the specific information of equipment, the corresponding records of each use, maintenance, maintenance and patrol inspection, effectively prevent the damage and loss caused by uncertainties, and strengthen the management of hospital equipment. In each inspection and maintenance of equipment, the corresponding information can also be written to avoid the omission of equipment management. at the same time, after the occurrence of equipment-related medical accidents, it can better trace the source of the problem
3. Application of Hospital Intelligent Call
By using RFID technology, the speed and transmission mode of hospital intelligent call system can be optimized. It is no longer limited to the traditional method of voice transmission, but also can be displayed by different audio-visual pictures and texts. In this way, in the face of emergency patients, hospitals can actively cooperate with the staff of various relevant departments to prepare medical materials and medical equipment quickly, while reducing the errors caused by information errors in the preparation process, to ensure that the final treatment effect is greatly improved. In the process of using RFID technology, the content of intelligent call system can also be updated in time to make adjustments according to the hospital’s own environment, so as to achieve better work results and improve past problems.
In recent years, more and more attention has been paid to hospital material management in the development of medical industry, which has had a far-reaching impact on the overall development of the hospital, social stability, regional harmony and so on. I hope that today’s explanation of the relevant knowledge for you, so that you can have a further understanding of the application of RFID technology in the medical field of material management.
