We are pleased to share the news that the 2023 RFID Journal Award for ‘Best Healthcare RFID/IoT Implementation’ went to Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein, for its deployment of a multifunctional RFID inventory management solution utilised throughout the organisation.
TSL’s 1128 Bluetooth® UHF RFID Reader played a prominent role in this solution, providing high performance data gathering for passive UHF RFID transponders embedded in hospital equipment, textiles and other high value assets. Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein is now reaping the rewards of this investment in RFID technology, including:
- A decrease in the loss of high value items
- Less time spent finding critical medical equipment
- Greater inventory accuracy
- A massive 86% decrease in inventory time for hospital linen (from 72 to 10 hours)
- Half the number of staff now needed when counting assets
