Cardinal Health Showcases RFID Technology at HIMSS14
February 21, 2014 — Cardinal Health will feature newly acquired WaveMark and its radio frequency identification (RFID) technology at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual meeting in Orlando, Fla. With the WaveMark RFID technology, the company’s inventory management solution is powered by a SaaS-based analytics platform.
With the integration of WaveMark technologies, the Cardinal Health Inventory Management Solutions (CIMS) enables real-time tracking and management of inventory across the entire supply chain, from manufacturer to point of care. The product visibility and inventory control resulting from the solution’s use can help hospitals, integrated delivery networks, medical device manufacturers and distributors.
The system is compatible with hospital information systems and is in place in hospital systems such as the Veteran’s Health Administration, Emory- St. Joseph’s in Atlanta and Florida Hospital in Orlando, Fla. The software platform leverages RFID, barcode and demand signaling methodologies to enable acute and ambulatory care centers to assemble customized inventory management workflows.
WaveMark technology will now be marketed as a component of Cardinal Health Inventory Management Solutions. Cardinal Health Inventory Management Solutions will be featured in the HIMSS Intelligent Hospital Pavilion, which simulates real-life scenarios within a hospital environment. Pavilion visitors can gain an overview of how technologies are integrated to enhance patient care, optimize workflow and manage resources.
