A top medical device manufacturer came to RGIS for help revising their inventory process. The inventory process included the handling of sterile trays and devices, often unwrapping them. A
post-inventory sterilization was then required, adding to the cost.
RGIS set in motion a large-scale plan to
convert their inventory process, incorporating RFID technology into their trays.
In the first year,
RGIS placed RFID tags and built a data file to update the client’s system.
The next year, RGIS completed a full physical inventory with the RFID readers. The new RFID technology dramatically reduced the need to open and re-sterilize trays.
By switching to an
RFID inventory process, our clients were able to save the hospitals they service
$150 per tray. Joint hospitals can save up to
$18,000 per year and free up essential resources.
