The IntelliGuard® Intelligent Inventory Solutions process begins by placing a small RFID tag onto medication packages. The RFID tag consists of an antenna and a chip that contains a unique identifier.
Using the IntelliGuard® RFID-enabled workstation (scanner/reader), product information/data such as manufacturer, medication name, NDC number, lot number and expiration date is associated with the unique identifier and placed into a relational database. Once the product information/data is placed into the relational database, the data is utilized throughout the application.
The IntelliGuard® System reads the RFID tags of all product inventory simultaneously, compares it against the relational database and provides work instructions (e.g., what items are missing or expired in a tray) , delivers actionable information (e.g., PAR level shortage or recalled product alerts) and provides inventory management reporting.
At the end of the transaction cycle, data is made available for reporting purposes.
