Medical systems use RFID to optimize costs, availability and traceability for all kind of medical items delivered to and used in hospitals, like orthopedic implants, blood bags, instruments and other goods. In most of the situations these goods are made of metal, contain liquids or stack closely which poses many challenges for commonly used RFID technologies.
The PJM StackTag® technology, however is very robust and works reliably in these situations, especially in combination with Magellan's powerful stand alone tunnel readers which identify, read and write to thousands of tagged items in all orientations even when they are tightly stacked.
Magellan and its partners already have implemented a full out-of-the-box standard solution for the tagging of orthopedic implants which tracks all incoming and outgoing shipments of orthopedic implants between medical distribution centers and hospitals, reducing manual labor, stock levels and improving quality.
