Saint Luke's Hospital of Kansas City saves thousands with RFID

from RFID Journal

Earlier this year, the cardiovascular laboratory at Saint Luke's Hospital of Kansas City deployed passive EPC RFID tags and readers that have enabled the hospital to better manage its stock of pacemakers, coronary stents and defibrillators. Through improved tracking and control over these items, the facility has managed to reduce the size of its coronary device inventory by half a million dollars, while also more accurately associating each piece of equipment with the particular patient on whom it is used, thereby reducing costs associated with patient billing. The RFID system also has helped St. Luke's to save hundreds of thousands of dollars annually, by enabling the CV to buy more items in bulk, thereby earning bigger discounts. more
