RFID and NFC labels for multiple applications in the healthcare industry
Smart labels with integrated RFID technology support digitization in the healthcare industry: Devices, medicines, containers, consumables and equipment are provided with RFID, NFC or Bluetooth labels and then automatically and contactless captured, read and controlled. The result: Optimized processes, increased patient safety and reliable product and brand protection. Schreiner MediPharm develops customized smart pharma labels adapted to the manufacturing processes which can be used in various application areas of the pharmaceutical industry, medical technology and clinical research while ensuring reliable functionality—from production to the end user.
The lock-and-key principle ensures that a medical device and its consumables, for example a drug, belong together without any doubt. The device is equipped with an RFID reader (= lock). It reads a consumable equipped with an RFID label (= key) automatically and contactless. The data stored on the RFID chip ensures that only original products are used.
At various stations, the RFID labels attached to the product are automatically recorded and seamlessly documented. RFID sensor labels can be used to digitally monitor the integrity, first opening or tampering of a container.
Drugs equipped with NFC labels can be digitally authenticated via smartphone and possible tampering with them can be detected. In real time, the user receives a clear result indicating whether he is holding an original drug in his hands. The pharmaceutical manufacturer receives information for monitoring the supply chain and avoiding possible gray market activities.
Through their interactive applications, NFC/RFID labels support medication adherence and improve a patient's compliance. Physicians can individually adjust the medication dosage as needed. At the same time, loyalty to the drug and the pharmaceutical company is built up among the physician and user.
