Increasing Safety & Efficiency in the OR: RAIN RFID Alliance Meeting

Posted on Jul 12, 2017 by Paul Elizondo

 Medication Safety in the OR at NMMC with Intelliguard RFID

The RAIN RFID Alliance meeting is coming up on July 18-20 in Seattle. We are proud to be RAIN charter members, following the highest quality RFID standards. The sessions on July 20th are free and open to the public. We are especially excited about "Increasing Safety and Efficiency in the OR", which will be presented by Emily J. Tschumper, Pharm. D., MS, of North Mississippi Medical Center along with Paula Dycaico of Intelliguard® RFID.

North Mississippi Medical Center (NMMC) has launched the revolutionary new Intelliguard® RFID RAIN-enabled Linked Visibility Inventory System™ in their operating rooms for securing, managing and tracking medication and narcotics. With its RAIN-enabled secure drawers and top surface for tracking medications “in process,” Intelliguard® LVIS™ is the first RAIN-enabled dispensing system in the operating room (OR), providing increased medication safety and workflow efficiency through true RAIN RFID automation. Speakers from NMMC and Intelliguard® RFID will discuss the process improvements and positive results gained from implementing LVIS™ in the OR; what broader needs LVIS™ is serving in the healthcare industry; and how the product development process was undertaken.  

Register to attend this and many other interesting sessions, including:

  • "IOT in Healthcare" by Kaiser Permanente
  • "Tomorrow's IOT Forecast" by Impinj
  • "Item-level RFID Tracking in Healthcare: The Value to Patients, Providers, and Products" by DeRoyal

OR Medication and Narcotics Access Made Simple with Linked Visibility Inventory System

Using advanced RAIN RFID technology, the Intelliguard® Linked Visibility Inventory System™ offers a non-disruptive, user-friendly experience for anesthesiologists, while providing pharmacies the real-time information they need to:

  • right size inventory
  • ensure safeguards that protect patient safety and personal accountability
  • reconcile usage for revenue cycle management
  • assure the right drugs in the right quantities are available where and when they’re needed

The Intelliguard® LVIS™ simplifies anesthesia medication management. Data is automatically captured and timestamped on every medication removed or returned each time an LVIS Station™ drawer is closed – with no scanning or manual recording required from the care team. Anesthesiologists simply open a drawer, use what's needed and close the drawer, while the LVIS Station™ relays precise inventory details to the pharmacy in real-time for every transaction, every minute of every day in every room.
