  • Building a Smarter Hospital: How RFID Can Reliably Eliminate Retained Surgical Items Left in Patients After Surgery
    Published June 2018
    Surgical items are sometimes left inside patients following an operation. Retained items can be instruments or tools, but the most common are sponges, which are used extensively during surgery. This can have potentially harmful and life-threatening consequences for patients. Jadak explains how RFID can address this ongoing problem. (6 pages)
  • RFID in the Beverage Industry
    Published May 2018
    Coca-Cola recently tested a new drink dispenser called Coca-Cola Freestyle. Utilizing technologies similar to those used to deliver precise doses of drugs, a single Freestyle unit can dispense more than 100 different beverages. Jadak explains how the system, which employs RFID-enabled cartridges, can detect supply levels and transmit data for re-stocking purposes. (6 pages)
  • Seizing The IoT Opportunity Requires Mastering Network Essentials
    Published May 2018
    The Internet of Things presents an historic opportunity for mobile network operators, but the path to capitalizing on the IoT has its own unique challenges due the unprecedented requirements from the IoT's structure and scale. Enabling tens of billions of tiny devices to stream data to the cloud and allowing enterprises to manage untold gigabytes of data introduces unique processes, service improvements, connections and business relationships between network operators and their customers and partners. Kerlink explains how the IoT can cause businesses, farms, cities and government agencies to experience tremendous operational improvements and a renaissance of innovation.
  • Using RAIN RFID Technology to Fulfill the FDA's UDI Regulation and Improve the Health-Care Supply Chain
    Published May 2018
    The FDA passed a regulation in 2013 mandating the identification of medical devices using a UDI labeling system. Device manufacturers and hospitals are now realizing the benefits emerging from this mandate in terms of patient safety, clinical outcomes, operational efficiencies, cost savings and revenue capture. This paper, from VUEMED's Arnold Chazal and Lana Makhanik, illustrates how RAIN RFID can satisfy the UDI mandate and transform the health-care supply chain. (6 pages)
  • Use of UAVs for Oilfield Equipment Inventory
    Published April 2018
    As RFID applications increase in the oil, gas, solar and other sectors of the energy-production industries, UAVs can be used to obtain important operational and inventory data. UAV use is particularly appealing in inaccessible and remote locations. The results of several UAV flights in experimental areas are presented and discussed in this white paper from Tali Freed, Ph.D., P.E., involving various brands of passive RFID tags for oilfield applications.
