“IntelliGuard RFID technology was introduced here over three years ago. This simple, unique, no label product immediately resolved long standing issues with monitoring medications in code trays not just for expiration dates but also for utilization. Access to these metrics allowed us to remove drugs prior to their expiration date for utilization in our cleanroom and thus reduce IV waste. Routine utilization metrics data allowed my staff to determine which medications are truly needed in a code or rapid response event. As times goes by we are continually finding new uses for this technology. Its current advantages over existing bar code technology for monitoring expiration dates cannot be over emphasized. This tool is a great asset in pharmacy inventory management.”
