Ingenica Solutions, Terso Solutions Partner on RFID-enabled Medical Device Tracking

U.K.-based Ingenica Solutions and Terso Solutions, a global RFID technology company, have partnered to combine software with RFID-enabled intelligent storage options in the United Kingdom.

Ingenica's 360/Atticus solution, an inventory-management and supply chain tool, can now be integrated to utilize Terso's automated inventory solutions, for use with products managed and stored within a hospital environment. RFID capability enables the system to monitor high-value medical devices and temperature-controlled scientific products and medicines, the companies report.

Managing high volumes of high-value medical devices can be challenging in Great Britain's National Health Service (NHS), and RFID technology is being adopted by an increasing number of hospitals across the U.K. to tag equipment. RFID is being used to improve asset visibility, utilization and patient safety, as well as boost operational performance and cost efficiencies.

"We are very pleased to be working with the team at Terso," said Nicola Hall, Ingenica Solutions' managing director, in a prepared statement. "The Terso technology and capability to our solution expands our data-capture options for our customers and truly enables one system to manage the various multiple challenges we find health-care providers need to solve."

"Terso is beyond excited to work with Ingenica on offering an innovative solution for automated inventory management in the U.K.," said Joe Pleshek, Terso Solutions' CEO and president, in the prepared statement. "This partnership affords hospitals the ability to track inventory in real-time and greatly improve supply chain processes using RFID and IoT technologies. This will mitigate costs, increase efficiency, and ultimately improve patient outcomes."
