Increasingly, pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, pharmacies, and other healthcare providers are looking for ways to better manage costs, increase efficiencies, ensure higher employee and patient satisfaction and, most importantly, improve patient safety.
Improving the performance of the entire system
Digital ID technologies can contribute to the performance of the entire healthcare system, which involves many processes that need identification, monitoring, controlling and documenting – strongholds of touchless RFID technologies.
From pharmacies to hospitals, RFID can help itemize and sort stock to ensure quality and prevent waste. The benefits go beyond return on investment as it has the potential to save lives. That’s why Avery Dennison has developed a portfolio of high-quality products, including tamper-evident RFID labels, and luminescent labels that provide pharmacists, hospitals, and those they are treating with vital information. These critical RFID-enabled solutions streamline efficiencies, improve accuracy, and help manage costs, all while fighting pharmaceutical brand counterfeiting.
Accurate tracking and authentication of medication
Integrating RFID into pharmaceutical products helps improve patient safety by enabling more accurate tracking and authentication of medication through the entire supply chain, with the goal of reducing error rates to nearly zero. It also eliminates the need for costly and, most important in today’s situation, labor-intensive in-house medication tagging, hence removing a considerable burden from the shoulders of hospital staff.
