In the hospital, the loss of medical equipment (misplacement, theft, maintenance is not timely, etc.), when looking for medical personnel, leading to the medical rescue of sick patients delay, medical personnel looking for special medical equipment time waste, special patients' regional activities lead to cross infection, temperature monitoring of temperature sensitive drugs, etc. let the hospital management in a passive state, the medical industry problems should be how to solve. Now will briefly share, in the medical industry have what type of electronic label and its application value.
l RFID Personnel Management
Hospital staff tags, generally card-shaped, worn on the neck or chest, can be used according to the actual needs of dual-frequency card.
1, Set up RFID access control attendance channel, medical staff then wear the corresponding RFID staff card, RFID attendance channel automatically identify the medical staff RFID card, automatically complete the attendance record management.
2, Special, important areas set up separate RFID access control, to enter the staff for permission detection and access records. In some occasions with high security level, biometric technologies such as fingerprint and iris can be set up to strictly manage the entry and exit of staff.
3, Security personnel patrol positioning, route management records. Security personnel wearing RFID tags that can be positioned, can monitor the activities of security patrol personnel, important places can be confirmed by RFID reading and writing equipment for patrol personnel identification confirmation.
RFID visit card
In the medical process, patients complete registration to obtain RFID access card (with social security card, you can directly use the social security card).
Patients with the card can go directly to any department, the system automatically transmits the patient information to the workstation of the doctor in the corresponding department, in the process of treatment, the doctor prescribed examination, medication, treatment information will be transmitted to the corresponding department, the patient just hold the "RFID access card" in the relevant department on the reader to scan it can Check-ups, medication, treatment, no longer need to scratch, pay the bill and run back and forth. At the end of the visit, you can print out an invoice and a list of charges at the charge office with your card. The whole process is intelligent and greatly enhances the efficiency of the hospital.
Patient tags, generally in the form of wristbands, can be easily worn on the wrists of patients. Different patient categories can be developed according to the need for different tag packaging styles, as well as to increase the number of different functions.
1, general patients only need ordinary wristband tags, only as identification purposes.
2, RFID wristbands with positioning function can be used for real-time positioning of special patients to prevent loss and cheap search.
3, according to the special patient needs to integrate pulse, body temperature and other sensor pieces of RFID wristbands, can record relevant data in real time, these data will help the hospital to carry out related medical services, and in excess of the security value automatically alarm.
4, The tag can also have an alarm function, adding 1-2 emergency buttons on the surface of the tag, which can be used to call for help at any time in case of an emergency.
5, In the application of newborn mother and baby identification, the baby tag will use special clean encapsulation measures. Not only can the matching management of mothers and babies be achieved, but also the safety of the identified object can be fully guaranteed. When someone attempts to steal the newborn out of the hospital ward, RFID identification equipment can real-time monitoring and alarm, and notify security personnel of the latest location of the stolen baby.
l RFID Asset and Equipment Management
Fixed assets and equipment in hospitals are of high value and have a long life cycle. Traditional medical asset management has many drawbacks and shortcomings, the use rate of assets is not high, the loss of unidentified assets, for fixed asset depreciation and maintenance, such as information asymmetry, there are financial data and physical situation does not match the problem.
The use of RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology for automated data collection of hospital assets, through the network to the data centre of the management system, can be predictable, scientific, automated, safe and reliable information management.
1, to achieve the modernisation and informationisation of the hospital's asset management, to solve the unnecessary waste of human resources and costs, to manage more scientifically, accurately and effectively, and to enhance the overall management of the hospital.
2, Convenient asset and equipment inventory: Through RFID non-contact reading, fixed asset information can be read very quickly and conveniently, thus realising the inventory enquiry of fixed assets. Not only is the inventory fast, but it also avoids repeated inventory and wrong inventory.
3, Real-time positioning and monitoring of fixed assets and equipment. By installing RFID reader antennas in each room of the warehouse, real-time positioning monitoring of all fixed assets with RFID tags can be achieved.
4, Fixed asset equipment flow monitoring, mobile records: through the room, warehouse, building exit or school entrance to install RFID reader, in and out of the warehouse without manual registration, automatic records, asset registration automatically associated with the asset owner information, illegal carry equipment out, the system automatically alarm. Make management personnel understand the destination of fixed assets and minimize the rate of fixed asset loss.
5, Equipment maintenance, use record management: RFID tags with storage function, equipment maintenance, use, can be easily recorded in the tag, can also be transmitted to the system background, for the use of equipment, scrapping, etc. to provide the basis for maintenance due to remind, etc.
l RFID Surgical Instrument Management
The operating theatre is one of the busiest and most important departments in the hospital, and each operation touches the hearts of many people, and every mistake in surgery can cause incalculable losses. As the main tool for surgery, the importance of managing surgical instruments is self-evident: incomplete surgical instruments, left in the patient's body, etc. can cause fatal mistakes. Using the fast multi-tag reading capability of RFID technology, rfid surgical instruments tag can be managed more intelligently.
The specific way to achieve this is to add small RFID electronic tags to each surgical instrument, install RFID readers or use RFID handheld terminals in the links that need to be identified, and carry out accurate identification for each occasion where surgical instruments need to be counted and identified, in order to reduce the occurrence of errors and improve management efficiency.
1, Pre-surgical disinfection management: surgical instrument cleaning and disinfection need to go through multiple procedures, the omission of procedures may trigger may cause safety hazards, and the addition of RFID automatic identification technology supervision measures can effectively solve this problem.
2, Surgical instrument packing and packet management, check, surgical instrument packing and sorting can use RFID reader to detect possible omissions in the packing process.
3, Operating room instrument management, surgical process management mainly includes pre-operative check, post-operative count, doctor confirmation, each link needs accurate identification, avoiding surgical instruments missed in the patient's body causing serious consequences.
l RFID Clothing Fabric Management
In hospitals, there are a large number of garments and fabrics that need to be washed every day, such as: surgical gowns, work clothes, patient uniforms, bed linen, towels, etc. The traditional processes of recycling, handing over, washing and issuing take a lot of manpower.
Using RFID technology's non-contact, fast scanning, high identification efficiency, not easily damaged, uniqueness and other characteristics, RFID laundry tags is now mainly used in hotels, laundries and hospital fabric laundry management, by sewing a strip-shaped RFID tag on each piece of fabric, with a globally unique identification code in the tag.
The washed clean cloths are placed in the corresponding laundry cabinets by the laundry operators as prompted by the system, and the hospital department staff collect the clean cloths by swiping the QR code or work permit, and the system automatically records the relevant information. When the laundry needs to be washed after use, the dirty cloths are thrown into the recycling cabinet, which automatically reads the cloths and counts the quantity and specifications without the need to use other reading equipment separately.
1. The whole process is fully automatic and intelligently visible, avoiding fabric leakage and human losses. The system automatically generates a delivery sheet when the cloths are collected. The handover of cloths between the hospital department and the laundry is done through the management system, without manual counting and without the need for the department to arrange staff, and the handover data is accurate and transparent, greatly improving efficiency and reducing disputes.
2. At the same time, the hospital department can also use the management system to grasp the washing cost, washing times, washing quantity and other data in real time, and provide reference data for the fabric procurement plan by tracking the number of washing times and estimating the service life of the fabric. All-round to achieve a seamless connection, improve the overall efficiency of the operation, fundamentally reduce the management costs.
l Medical Supplies Medicine RFID Management
The many good features of RF tags make them the first choice for supply chain management of medical products. In the medical field, a large number of errors in prescriptions, drug distribution and medication administration occur every year, resulting in many medical incidents.
Improving the tracking of medicines and medical consumables can help hospitals save money and curb the proliferation of counterfeit medicines and medical consumables.
1. By attaching RFID tags to the packaging of pharmaceuticals and medical consumables, they can be quickly identified by the tags during the manufacturing and distribution process, speeding up the manufacturing and distribution process.
2. The tag can be used for anti-counterfeit processing of drugs and medical consumables. Hospitals and pharmacies can read the RFID tag when accepting drugs and medical consumables, and read the information from the factory to identify the authenticity of the drugs and medical consumables.
For the management of blood, bone marrow, sperm, eggs and other special medical products, RFID tags also have numerous applications.
In blood management, for example, RFID blood tags are attached to blood bags and used to record key data and operator information in all aspects of blood collection, testing, storage and use, allowing each bag of blood to be monitored throughout, effectively ensuring blood quality and traceability of information.
In addition, RFID tags combined with temperature sensor technology have important applications in the cold chain logistics and storage of medical supplies.
RFID temperature sensor tags can detect the temperature in real time and transmit to the system through the reader to achieve real-time monitoring and early warning of temperature. The RFID active temperature sensor tag with battery can record the temperature information during the whole process of medical supplies logistics, so as to ensure the quality and safety of medical supplies.
l Sample RFID Management
In the medical samples field, samples are often collected in a decentralised manner and passed on to the relevant competent medical testing organisations for laboratory testing. During the handover process, the handover samples are inventoried, including the quantity and information about the samples. Here, the disadvantages of traditional barcode management become apparent: the inventory is slow, inefficient and prone to error, and the long inventory time is detrimental to the preservation of samples. RFID medical samples tags has fast inventory with high efficient and accuracy, and save the labor process time.
1. To achieve rapid inventory of the sample handover process and improve efficiency.
2. Reducing errors in the handover process.
3, Shorten the inventory and handover time and ensure the quality of handover samples.
l Medical waste management
Medical waste is a hazardous waste product, containing a large number of harmful pathogens, toxic and harmful chemical contaminants and radioactive contaminants, and is therefore extremely dangerous. The Ministry of Health of China clearly stipulates that medical waste in hospitals must be stored in closed storage, at designated points and transported by special personnel. Medical waste must be incinerated to ensure sterilisation and avoid environmental pollution, and recycling and reuse in any form is not allowed.
Some irresponsible units and individuals often do not dispose of medical waste as required for the sake of convenience, causing considerable harm to society.
The disposal of medical waste involves a number of departments such as medical, urban construction, environmental protection and scientific research, and requires the collaboration of all links and increased supervision.
RFID Medical waste tags combined with wireless communication and satellite positioning technology can be a good way to track and manage the disposal process of medical waste.
Medical waste bags or plastic containers are equipped with RFID tags, and the waste disposal vehicles are equipped with radio frequency reading equipment to read the tag information on the vehicle without interruption. At the same time, satellite positioning equipment and wireless communication devices are installed on the waste disposal vehicle, which continuously transmits relevant data to the monitoring centre during the transportation process.
From the monitoring centre, the location of the waste truck can be tracked transparently and the waste on the truck can be monitored dynamically. Each bag (box/bucket) of medical waste can be traced back to its destination and the person responsible for it. This makes it possible to monitor the proper disposal of medical waste and to eliminate public concerns with transparent management.
