Hospital Ixtapaluca is employing an RFID solution to improve the efficiency of its surgical tool management and reduce the incidence of lost instruments. Up to 11,000 surgical instruments are being tagged and tracked at the facility. The hospital is monitoring the tools before, during and after surgery, as well as identifying when they require maintenance, such as sharpening or replacement.
