WHITEPAPER – Why Hospitals are Rapidly Adopting RFID-Enabled Medical Cabinets
RFID-enabled medical cabinets, known as “Smart Cabinets”, are an integral part of a smart hospital’s ecosystem. They are becoming popular among healthcare facilities because they optimize workflow, increase patient safety, and reduce cost. They accomplish this through various means, such as inventory and consignment stock management, tracking high value medical devices, and secure access to pharmaceuticals. They allow hospital personnel to dispense medications quickly, safely, and accurately. In addition, what was once a manual, tedious task, is now automated: every item removed or added to the medical cabinet is recorded automatically, saving time, and eliminating human error.
