RFID Boosts Medical Equipment Usage at U.K. Hospital

During the 18 months since Addenbrooke's Hospital installed a solution that uses active radio frequency identification tags to track medical equipment, the 1,100-bed medical facility reports that it has more than doubled its asset-utilization rate, thereby reducing the need for excess rentals and purchases, as well as the amount of time employees previously spent searching for missing items.
