Equipment and supplies that are not readily available when required for patient care can compromise safety and impact staff productivity. By appropriately tracking the location, availability and usage of equipment or high-cost, low-turnover supplies, an investment in RFID has the potential to save money, minimize waste and improve employee efficiency. This presentation will discuss one hospital's experience in developing a business case with a positive ROI to fund and implement RFID at a 248-bed, acute-care hospital, ambulatory surgical unit and nine medical office buildings.
