RFID prevents $578K worth of cancer drugs from spoiling at Newport Hospital

Just days after Lifespan, a health system of four hospitals in Rhode Island, deployed an active RFID solution to monitor the temperature of storage refrigerators, the system prevented more than $500,000 worth of rare cancer drugs from spoiling. When a refrigeration unit failed during an overnight shift, the system sent an immediate alert to hospital personnel at Newport Hospital who were able to move the drugs to a different refrigerator. Without the RFID-enabled system, the malfunction may not have been discovered for days, rendering the drugs useless.

After deploying an RFID temperature monitoring system, Newport Hospital avoided the spoilage of more than $500,000 worth of cancer drugs.

With nearly 600 temperature sensitive tags deployed, Lifespan is saving more than 12,000 labor hours required previously for manual inspections.

In February, Rhode Island Hospital conducted a pilot to track physicians as they traveled through the hospital. Six physicians carried RFID tags in their pockets for a week so hospital officials could gain a better understanding of hospital workflow, part of the hospital’s Six Sigma program to eliminate unnecessary processes.
