The future of medication inventory management
belongs to connected products.

Why +RFID

RFID, or Radio Frequency Identification, in healthcare may help improve patient safety by reducing medical errors.1 +RFID supports that effort by eliminating tedious manual tagging and data entry.

Fresenius Kabi +RFID medicines feature a high-performance RFID tag embedded in the label that contains the relevant data that hospitals rely on every day to immediately identify, locate and manage their inventory. All necessary product information is accessible from the tag, which enables an interoperable environment and item-level serialization of each Fresenius Kabi +RFID product.

  • Safety

  • Manufacturer-prepared Manufacturer-prepared medication under strict FDA guidelines and cGMP processes

  • Embedded tag and data Embedded data may help reduce the risk of error from manual tagging and data entry

  • Quality assurance Tag functionality and encoded data are validated throughout the automated cGMP manufacturing process (ensuring tag robustness and data accuracy)

  • Authentication Locked serialization at the unit of use allows for the identification of genuine Fresenius Kabi products

  • Efficiency

  • Pre-tagged Products arrive pre-tagged, eliminating tedious manual tagging and associating product information

  • Ready-to-read Custom designed tags are ready-to-read, loaded with essential drug information: NDC, expiration date, lot, and unique serial number

  • Time savings Saves time for pharmacy personnel, freeing up specialized resources to focus more on value-added tasks

  • Clear identification Labels will include RFID identifiers to indicate which products are pre-tagged

Built for the Future +RFID smart labels are built on industry standards to ensure interoperability and actionable data from our tag, enabling multiple read-points to easily leverage information. No cloud lookups needed.

GS1 is a global standards organization that brings efficiency and transparency to the supply chain. With guidance from GS1 US, +RFID developed a traceable serialized numbering system for each pre-tagged product.

RAIN RFID promotes the universal adoption of UHF RFID technology. Through RAIN’s partnership, +RFID hopes to create a global-reaching network of technology partners.

ISO sets international standards in a variety of industries. +RFID smart labeled products are developed under ISO/IEC 18000-63:2013, which regulates the RFID technology space.

Axia Lab of Michigan State University (MSU) provides expert led, third-party validation services for RFID tagged pharmaceutical products based on GS1’s Tagged Item Performance Protocol (TIPP) Guidelines to ensure consistent performance and reliability.
