RFID Kanban Inventory Management
Hospitals epicenters of activity never stop for a single second, because many times, lives to depend on what happens there. A critical part of the solution hospitals and their personnel provide to patients involves all supplies from every day to critical care. Nurses and other caregivers must be sure that these supplies are consistently available.
In the past, keeping track of medical supplies was very difficult, with so many staff members accessing the same supply stock. Along with the typical hospital floor or department’s hectic pace, it was easy for stock to be depleted and not replaced, allowing critical supply inventory to fall short.
That’s why Pegasus created EZ Swipe. This revolutionary RFID-based failsafe inventory alert system can save up to 50% in labor costs, improve the morale of hospital staff and optimize patient care.
EZ Swipe works with the Pegasus Kanban system. So once the last supply is depleted from the front bin, all it takes is a simple swipe of the EZ Swipe slider to change the green in-stock position to the red on order position. At that point, an RFID signal is sent to the cloud, indicating that the supplies in that specific bin need replacing. The signal is then sent in the form of a pick order from the cloud, usually to an iPad or email address in the materials management warehouse.
Materials management personnel picked the applicable orders from the shelves, placed them on a trolley. And deliver them to the various storage areas within the hospital from where the easy swipe signals came. The materials management personnel move the older supplies from the back bin to the front bin.
Refill the backbend with a full stock of the depleted supplies. And move the EZ Swipe slider from the on-order indicator to in stock with a simple swipe of the hand with EZ Swipe by Pegasus. It really is just that easy to make sure hospital personnel and nurses have all the critical supplies they need.
