ThingMagic and Avery Dennison enter healthcare market

Retail RFID solutions have been in the spotlight over the last two years as retailers embrace the technology for the inventory accuracy it provides, which can lead to increased sales.

While there is great potential in retail, where it is believed RFID will become ubiquitous within two years, RFID stands to make an even greater impact in healthcare, where huge gains are already occurring in hospital facilities.

With that in mind, Avery Dennison Healthcare Provider Solutions, a business of Avery Dennison Corp., is collaborating with Trimble to deliver ThingMagic® powered passive RFID-based systems to hospitals. By entering the market, Trimble hopes to take advantage of the huge opportunity for ThingMagic readers within large healthcare facilities. (Read the release here).

By utilizing Avery Dennison Healthcare Provider Solutions, hospitals can select a single area of focus and expand based on resources and critical needs. For example, hospitals can begin with a focused, high-impact application like loss-prevention, and then expand to a hospital-wide system that integrates asset-management and patient flow. This approach minimizes involvement from the IT department or clinical staff, making the system easy to deploy and scale.

“We favor passive RFID as a technology because the infrastructure is scalable and reliable, and the tags are low cost and available in a variety of form factors,” says Jim Ettamarna, general manager of Avery Dennison Healthcare Provider Solutions. “This technology enables hospitals to track thousands of critical items, and use proven application software to control their improved processes. We are excited to work with ThingMagic to help hospitals drive meaningful impact.”

The systems offered by Avery Dennison Healthcare Provider Solutions are designed to help healthcare customers optimize processes for improved patient safety and reduced costs. Included in the offering are RFID readers, best-in-class application software, RFID tags, and implementation and process-improvement support. ThingMagic Mercury6 and Astra® UHF RFID readers are available with the systems, providing customers with a choice of form factors proven across diverse hospital environments.

Avery Dennison Healthcare Provider Solutions leverages Lean and Six Sigma expertise to improve, error-proof and control the interrelated processes that support and impact patient care. Benefits are maximized by taking a holistic approach, which often involves tracking a wide-range of objects and people moving through the hospital, including equipment, consumables, specimens, documents, patients and employees.

“The Avery Dennison solutions allow hospitals to focus on driving impactful outcomes,” said Tom Grant, general manager of Trimble’s ThingMagic Division. “We’re pleased to be working with Avery Dennison Healthcare Provider Solutions to enable hospitals to leverage our RFID reader platforms for process improvement and set higher benchmarks for success.”
