Discussion on the Application of RFID Technology in the Management of Medical Supplies


Medical care is an essential industry in people's daily life. RFID also plays a major role in the medical field. Today's topic is the application of RFID in medical material management. Hope this gives you more knowledge about RFID.

In the medical field, traditional hospitals often adopt manual recording methods for information collection and recording, which is likely to cause errors and confusion in information records, leading to hospital property losses and medical accidents. In response to the above disadvantages, more and more hospitals are beginning to consider the implementation of hospital information development, using RFID technology to maximize the improvement of the shortcomings and inherent shortcomings of the hospital, strengthen the management of patients, medical staff and hospital materials, and improve the comprehensive medical services of the hospital. level. Today, I will explain to you several application scenarios of RFID technology in material management in the medical field, so that everyone can have a deeper understanding of the significance of RFID technology for the medical industry.
1. Application of Hospital Storage Management

When medical staff put in hospital materials, they collect basic information such as the product name, specification, manufacturer, batch number, production date, and expiration date of the materials, and then affix the RFID tags written in the material information, and then classify and manage them. library storage. When materials need to be used or counted, the medical staff can use the handheld terminal PDA to read the RFID tags of the materials, and then they can effectively count the quantity of materials, material usage records, whether there is any expiration date, etc., and improve the work of material management. efficiency. Through the use of RFID technology, the hospital's management of materials has become easier, and the hospital's use and procurement process of materials has been further improved, and the use of expired materials has also been prevented, effectively curbing medical accidents caused by human negligence.

2. Application of Hospital Equipment Management

In the management of medical equipment in traditional hospitals, manual records are often made, and the resulting equipment loss occurs from time to time, and the protection and inspection of hospital equipment information is also very troublesome. By using RFID technology, affix RFID tags with detailed information on medical equipment, and read the RFID tags of the equipment through the handheld terminal PDA, the medical staff can know the specific information of the equipment, each use, maintenance, repair and inspection. The corresponding records of inspection can effectively prevent damage and loss caused by uncertain factors, and strengthen the management of hospital equipment. In each equipment inspection and maintenance work, data can also be written to the corresponding information, avoiding omissions in equipment management, and at the same time, after the occurrence of equipment-related medical liability accidents, the source can be better traced. Find the source of the problem.
3. Hospital Intelligent Call Application

Through the use of RFID technology, the speed and communication method of the hospital's intelligent call system can be optimized. It is no longer limited to the traditional method of only voice transmission, and can also be displayed using different audio-visual graphics. In this way, when the hospital is facing emergency patients, the personnel of various relevant departments can actively cooperate to quickly prepare and improve medical supplies and medical equipment, and at the same time reduce errors caused by information errors in the preparation process, ensuring the final treatment effect. promote. In the process of using RFID technology, the content of the intelligent calling system can also be updated in time, prompting it to make adjustments according to the hospital's own environment, so as to achieve better working results and improve past problems.

In the development of the medical industry in recent years, more and more attention has been paid to hospital material management, which has had a profound impact on the overall development of the hospital, social stability, and regional harmony at multiple levels. I hope that the relevant knowledge explained to you today will give you a better understanding of the application of RFID technology in material management in the medical field.
