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 closest thing you will find to a one-size-fits-all” RFID solution!

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.

Perfect for tracking returnable containers such as pallets, crates or totes, Metalcraft’s Standard RFID Tag attaches directly to non-metal assets.

The Universal Micro RFID Tag measuring 1 7/8” x 5/8” 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.

The only thing “mini” about this tag is its size! With a smaller footprint and lower profile, the Universal Mini RFID Tag easily fits where other tags may be too large and obtrusive and still gives incredible read ranges compared to other tags in its class.

The closest thing you will find to a one-size-fits-all” RFID solution! The Universal RFID Asset Tag is a surface-independent tag that uses a patented inlay design and passive RFID technology to obtain excellent read ranges regardless of the surface – metal, plastic, even wood.
