Every day, hospitals move lots of equipment—everything from patient monitors and IV pumps to hospital beds and wheelchairs. In a large hospital, locating equipment is not always easy. So, how can your staff quickly find these items when needed? RAIN RFID technology holds the answer.

RAIN RFID is a battery-free, wireless technology that connects numerous items simultaneously to the internet, and allows you to instantly determine their location and status. Let’s take a look at the impact of RAIN RFID in healthcare:

  • RAIN RFID is efficient. Many healthcare organizations manage their assets using spreadsheets. Consider that a hospital in the U.S. with 400-500 beds would likely have more than 10,000 items to track. Manually tracking such inventory is time-consuming and error-prone. RAIN RFID can locate every item automatically, so items are less likely to get lost, or worse, stolen.
  • You can also use RAIN RFID to track inventory usage of other assets and supplies, such as medications, blood, devices, instruments, or prosthetics used for patient care and treatment. When integrated into finance systems, this data helps ensure more accurate billing and appropriate revenue capture.

The fact is RAIN RFID has broad impact for managing healthcare assets—from enhancing clinical efficiency and improving patient care to helping hospitals save money and improve billing accuracy. As the leader in RAIN RFID solutions, Impinj can help you explore all the compelling reasons to adopt this exciting technology.
