Derby implements RFID25th November 2011
A radio-frequency identification (RFID) system to improve its tracking of equipment has been introduced by Derby Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
It has bought mobile PDAs with radio frequency scanners and supporting software from Harland Simon to track specialty beds and infusion pumps in a pilot scheme, before looking to extend the system to other pieces of equipment. There are more than 10,000 assets currently held in the trust’s central ‘equipment library’ and the new system will replace the existing asset-tracking method which relied on “paper, white boards and big felt-tip pens”.
