More and more forward-looking OEMs are integrating RFID technology into their medical devices at the manufacturing stage, thus increasing value throughout the supply and use chain. From easier tracking within the factory
to the creation of features that enhance patient safety, embedded RFID leads to significant benefits for all stakeholders.
Of course, integrating an RFID tag into a product begins with sourcing the RFID tag itself. There are two ways to do this. The first option is to invest internal resources into engineering, R&D and building of an RFID solution from the ground up. For most organizations, this proves extremely costprohibitive. As a consequence, leading medical device OEMs typically turn to an RFID partner with the experience and track record to do the job correctly in an efficient, cost-effective manner.
This guide is designed to help OEMs find such a partner. It will outline what manufacturers should look for in an RFID supplier, present case studies detailing successful engagements and detail proprietary technologies that make true RFID integration a reality.
