Logistics in Medicine, Clinics, Laboratories and Pharmaceutics

03/2020 - Publication date: June 17th 2020

The everyday processes in a clinic or laboratory are complex. Patient safety has the highest priority. The quality of care must be guaranteed at all times. The correct identification of a sample in the laboratory can be as life-saving as locating equipment, preparing surgical instruments or monitoring compliance with hygiene standards.

Hospital management 2020 means: Efficient digitalization strategies geared to everyday processes. These include laundry management with laundry lockers or rooms, the use of pneumatic delivery systems, patient-care robots and the rapid connection between laboratories and wards, the identification of patients and staff, the location and digital maintenance of medical equipment, the monitoring of surgical plans, and the temperature of drugs, laboratory samples and blood donations.

All optimizations and cost reductions depend on an integrated digitalization strategy and the use of WIoT technologies such as RFID, NFC, BLE or WiFi.
