Management of inventory turns, reducing waste due to product expiration, and reducing inventory reconciliation adjustments are all possible thanks to the UDI barcode. In this webinar, leading experts discuss best practices for data capture and the approaches that achieve the best outcomes based on potential use case scenarios.
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.

Cybersecurity vulnerabilities and intrusions pose risks for every hospital and its reputation. Become aware of what you can do to prevent cyber security in your facility.
In order to become data-driven organizations, healthcare providers need to leverage data standards and information technology. In the past, lack of standards across healthcare has been a major roadblock. However, numerous governmental and industry initiatives pursuing the adoption and implementation of supply chain standards across health IT systems are giving providers the opportunity to do just that. Standards lay the foundation for supply chain operations to leverage information technology to help transform healthcare providers into data-driven organizations.
