BJC Healthcare Adopts RFID Cabinets to Track Surgical Devices

BJC HealthCare, which operates 12 hospitals in Illinois and Missouri, is in a multiyear process of deploying radio frequency identification technology to track and manage the thousands of medical supplies it uses. The high-frequency (HF) RFID system consists of cabinets with built-in readers, passive HF RFID tags, handheld reader wands, and Cardinal Inventory Management Solution software on a cloud-based server to manage the collected data, all provided by Cardinal Health. BJC is installing the technology first in its cardiac cath labs, followed by its gastrointestinal (GI) labs, its intervention radiology department and its operating rooms.
