Improving Safety, Reducing Costs and Increasing Efficiency at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center

Breakout Session
Long Beach Memorial Medical Center is using an automated RFID-enabled kit and tray replenishment solution to manage medication kits, trays and tackle boxes for faster processing and fewer errors. Since deploying the system, the 420-bed general medical and surgical facility has been able to inventory more than 150 items within seconds, providing details regarding what is missing, expired and soon to expire among medication kits, trays, tackle boxes, fanny packs and duffel bags. Hear how RFID is driving greater patient safety by assuring that medication kits never leave the pharmacy with expired or missing drugs. Learn how the RFID system has enabled thousands of dollars in revenue through accurate charge capture and cost savings, realized by optimizing labor efficiency, reducing supply waste and lowering carrying costs.
