Identiv’s unique radio frequency identification (RFID) technology can fit the needs of any medical device, from withstanding high temperatures, bonding, or embedding in special materials, to avoiding electrical interference.
RFID-Enabled Medical Device Solutions
Medical devices bring life-saving technology to patients in hospitals, clinics, and homes. The addition of RFID technology to these products – ranging from electronic thermometers to the most advanced surgical robots – can transform inventory and logistics, automate device calibration, simplify regulatory requirements, and streamline training.
Medical device manufacturers must be able to identify every device, at times down to the component level, to meet regulatory demands and ensure patient safety, especially in the unlikely event of a product recall.
Medical Device Security Through RFID
RFID gives a digital identity to physical objects. It does more than identify a product; it can authenticate connecting components, and eliminate counterfeit and aftermarket parts. Unlike an easily copied and transferred barcode, RFID tags can hold secure information that should only be modified by an authorized individual, like training records. The applications are as varied as the devices themselves.
Our customizable RFID portfolio enables an easier workflow for healthcare organizations and medical facilities with more reliable test results, helping them cut laboratory costs and providing better test outcomes for patients suspected of suffering from various issues.
Integrated RFID solutions for medical devices can power:
Near field communication (NFC)-enabled capacitive sensing syringes
RFID connectivity to any object in the IoT market
Thin antennae and microchips embedded into labels
Ultra high-frequency (UHF) RFID inlays
Smart injectable dose monitoring
Innovative tamper detection
Patient safety is critical, which is why we provide customizable, specialty RFID solutions that make healthcare smarter and safer. RFID technology can help hospitals track life-saving equipment and protect patient privacy, ensure pharmacies improve cold chain distribution processes and make digital healthcare more connected and accessible, and provide labs with the tools to better analyze specimens while cutting costs.
