Zebra’s FX7500 and AN480 Help Danish Hospital Improve Quality of Care

Posted April 20, 2016

Zebra FX7500 RFID ReadersZebra has announced that Det Nye Universitetshospital has selected its RFID technology for a pilot conducted at Åarhus University Hospital (AUH). The solution is designed to improve operational visibility, staff productivity and quality of patient care. It includes Zebra FX7500 fixed RFID and AN480 RFID antennas which are used to track equipment, medication and staff throughout the hospital.

Constructed to extend the existing Åarhus hospital, the new AUH is one of several ‘super’ hospitals being built in Denmark. When the construction is complete, AUH will be the largest hospital in Northern Europe with 9,500 employees and 4,000 patient visits daily. The RFID system tracks 20 different RFID tagged assets – from hospital personnel with staff name tags embedded with RFID to wheelchairs, beds and medical equipment to labels used on patient specimen samples. Staff can now quickly track and locate these assets through a map on their mobile devices to optimize workflows, increase accuracy and improve patient care.

The RFID solution provides AUH with a real-time, accurate and fail-safe view of its resources from staff to equipment. Staff will spend less time looking for equipment, nurses and doctors are more easily located and moved to where they are needed, and patient samples are tracked in real time to avoid errors.

“We now have a reliable, high-performance system in place, which allows our staff to locate our resources quickly and accurately. The feedback from our staff has been very positive, and we’re looking forward to exploring many more uses of the RFID system.” – Lars G. Knudsen, chief information officer, Det Nye Universitetshospital


Plant Access Grows Its Competitive Edge: Industry-First RFID Case Study

Posted March 14, 2016

Plant AccessIntermec IF2 RFID Readers is a specialised logistics services provider, catering for the green life industry. Plant Access provides a highly efficient service utilising a unique, innovative steel stillage design used to pick, crossdock and deliver nursery plants to Bunnings Warehouse locations across Victoria and South Australia.

Weeding out manual processes

Plant Access manages the orders and provides the steel stillages that are used to transport plant products from over 67 nursery supplier sites to Bunnings stores across Victoria and South Australia. Shipments from different suppliers are consolidated at the Plant Access cross dock facility before orders are transported to Bunnings locations and plants are sold to consumers direct out of the steel stillages.

At any one time, Plant Access has thousands of re-usable steel stillages spread across hundreds of sites throughout the supply chain. Knowing the location of all these stillages and the status of an order was a serious challenge for Plant Access under a legacy paper-based manual ordering system.

A new automated tracking system was necessary to capture real-time data from nursery supplier sites, the Plant Access cross dock logistics facility and the Bunnings stores, in order for Plant Access to have an accurate and instant visibility of their stillage assets and the products they were transporting.
