The lack of end-to-end supply chain visibility in the medical device channel contributes to an estimated five billion dollars ($5B) of inventory waste for the U.S. health system today. (PNC Healthcare and GHX, 2011) RFID is a key technology that is enabling health systems, distributors and manufactures to partner together to remove this waste. Successful implementation of RFID in a healthcare delivery organization takes careful planning, execution, and change management agility.
This paper explores the RFID implementation journey at BJC HealthCare in St. Louis, MO and the corresponding lessons learned, and value gained through achieving end-to-end supply chain visibility.

Human cells, tissues, or cellular or tissue-based products (HCT/Ps) are a precious resource often provided by deceased donors and/or acutely grieving family members. Living donors also provide HCT/Ps that can improve and save lives of recipients in need. Tissue banks, eye banks and cellular therapy laboratories handle these products of human origin with care and respect, understanding the special gift of donation. It is important this care and respect is followed from the time of donation and recovery to the moment of implant, transplant, infusion, or transfer to a human recipient. This guidance document, developed by a work group of the AHRMM Learning UDI Community (LUC) provides information on HCT/Ps, HCT/Ps regulation as a medical device, traceability of HCT/Ps, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Unique Device Identification (UDI) Rule and its effects on HCT/Ps regulated as a medical device.
