RFID Labels & Tags for Medical Use
RFID is used in some hospitals. RFID labels & tags help prevent the time loss of equipment not being available. They also aid in helping with staff frustrations due to operational inefficiencies.
Benefits of RFID for hospitals:
- Manage assets
- Track patients

RFID tags are used on hospital equipment including bed, IV pumps, surgical equipment, and wheel chairs.
RFID also has a place in pharmaceutics. They ensure a patient is receiving the correct medication and helps to prevent distribution of counterfeit drugs.
