Automatically locate assets

Read thousands of items simultaneously, without line-of-sight. RAIN RFID tags are durable, low-cost, and don’t require batteries. Extend your asset management to include every valuable asset in your facility.

Automating tracking means asset availability data is always current and correct, thus eliminating slow, error-prone manual processes.

Maintain availability while lowering capital costs

With an average of 15% of hospital assets lost or stolen each year, there is a real financial cost from an inefficient asset management system. Automating asset management both improves access and reduces capital costs.

Automate inventory counts for optimized supplies

Managing supplies is often a manual and error-prone process, relying on clinical staff and distracting them from their primary focus of patient care. Automate inventory counting and medication management to reduce costs, eliminate waste, and, most importantly, reduce errors that impact patients.

Eliminate waste from expired medications

Gathering and restocking supplies takes time. And managing product expirations is challenging across all locations. Save time and money with automatic, accurate data about inventory levels, identification of expiring medications, and insights that inform planning.

Improve patient charge capture

Inaccurate tracking of consumed supplies can have a direct financial impact on health systems due to incomplete charge capture for procedures. Automate identification of supplies consumed in caring for patients and ensure complete and proper charges.

Simplify bulk handling of laundry items

Sorting, handling and counting laundry by hand is a time consuming and inaccurate process. Laundry tagged with RAIN RFID can be identified and tracked by the client in bulk. And, as a hands-free system, it also eliminates the need for staff to touch soiled or dirty items.

Clean laundry to standard

Laundry processes are difficult to keep track of, with some pieces requiring special treatment. Data about the type of cleaning that has taken place can be encoded into the RAIN RFID tag as actions are completed to guarantee laundry is done to standard every time.

Ensure delivery to the correct customer

Because things like linens, towels, and robes, may look alike from one client to another, it can be difficult to ensure that freshly laundered items end up at the right location. Identify the origins of tagged laundry and ensure each client receives the correct linens.
