RFID for Medical: Hospitals and Healthcare

Tracking assets can be life-saving—trust in Metalcraft solutions

As one of the most heavily regulated industries, healthcare requires a strict level of asset management to maintain regulatory compliance and support patient outcomes. Many hospital assets such as wheelchairs, diagnostic equipment and pumps need to be located quickly for vital patient care. Not to mention that they are often loaned from one facility to another. Metalcraft’s asset tracking technology allows the medical industry to easily gather real-time data for critical medical needs.

The benefits of hospital staff keeping tabs on where critical equipment is located at all times include:

  • Tracking maintenance of life-sustaining machines

  • Tracking asset location in real-time

  • Recording calibration information easier

  • Reducing unnecessary equipment purchases

  • Providing a real-time account of safe handling

  • Preventing theft and counterfeit of supplies

Diagnostic and scientific medical equipment are used in harsh conditions and pushed to their limits while having equally challenging regulations. And, medical staff need the certainty of having key equipment at their fingertips. RFID and barcode technologies provide the authentication you need for all your safety concerns—from accurate tracking and authentication of medication to improving accuracy of where equipment is located in real-time. Partnering with the deep expertise from Metalcraft will create products that assure patient safety. Now that’s ID Made Better®.

The European Universal RFID Asset Tag is a surface-independent tag that uses a unique inlay design and passive RFID technology to obtain excellent read ranges regardless of the surface – metal, plastic, even wood - allowing you to use only one RFID tag for your asset tracking application.

A versatile and affordable RFID tag made in the USA to fit a wide array of on-metal and standard applications, the Universal MC RFID Tag is available both preprinted and onsite printable to handle whatever asset tagging application you have.

Metalcraft's RFID Standard Single Side RFID Labels are ideal for asset tracking applications on non-metal surfaces that require attachment directly to the asset.

Measuring 1 7/8" x 5/8", the Universal Micro RFID Tag is a great solution to your identification projects that require a small RFID tag with great read range. With a tiny footprint and low profile, the Universal Micro RFID Tag easily fits where other tags are too big and obtrusive.

With a smaller footprint and lower profile than the original Universal RFID Asset Tag, the Universal Mini RFID Tag easily fits in smaller places where other tags may be too large.

This revolutionary product line features surface-independent tags with a patented inlay designed to obtain excellent read range regardless of the surface - metal, plastic, even wood.

Hospital Asset Management

Often times, when we hear from our healthcare customers, they are having issues keeping track of equipment and supplies that are necessary for them to give proper care to their patients. Things like intravenous pumps, wheel chairs and supply kits go missing at the drop of a hat, forcing employees to use their valuable time to track down what they need. When things go missing, it can also force the hospital to unnecessarily purchase new items, which causes flawed record-keeping.
