Swiss Medical Group selects American company Zebra’s RFID solution

Jun 11, 2021

Fibre2Fashion Toggle navigation 11 Pic: Zebra Zebra Technologies, an innovator at the front line of business with solutions?and partners?that deliver?a performance edge based in the US, has announced that Swiss Medical Group (SMG), a leading healthcare provider in Argentina, has selected Zebra’s RFID solution to improve inventory management and the efficiency of its laundry operations. Garment control and traceability are critical across SMG’s eight hospitals, twelve medical centres and different specialised institutions including more than a million associates. SMG has implemented a modern solution comprised of Zebra’s FX9600 and FX7500 fixed RFID readers, RFD2000 RFID sleds paired with TC20 mobile computers, and the Laundry RFID Solution from Telectrónica, a Zebra PartnerConnect Premier Business Partner. Through the real-time visibility SMG has gained into its inventory, this solution has helped SMG save $80,000 (USD) annually by reducing the number of lost articles of clothing, according to a press release by Zebra. SMG Laundry also add RFID tags to its staff uniforms and hospital bedding, categorising them by colour, size, and receiving entity. This reduces human errors during the delivery process and helps SMG send the right clothes to the right customer. In addition, the company installed an RFID-equipped tunnel where uniforms are counted while going to the laundry in sealed bags, reducing the risk of transmitting diseases. With less time needed to locate and pick clothing articles, the RFID solution has increased SMG’s worker productivity by 70 per cent. It also helps SMG comply with aseptic regulations and provide better care for its patients and medical staff, according to Zebra. “It is unthinkable to return to paper-based operations after implementing the Zebra-Telectrónica RFID solution. This project offered us the visibility and efficiency we were looking for to improve our laundry operations, which involves more than seven million clothing transactions each year. Now we can audit the inventory of one hospital, which includes more than 20,000 garments, in four hours with only one person, without interfering with medical operations,” Sebastián Cimino, CEO of SMG Laundry said in a statement. “We are proud to be selected to support the biggest RFID implementation in the Argentinian healthcare industry. Our RFID solution has eliminated the time spent on manual tasks and added efficiency to inventory management, helping SMG know exactly how many garments it has and where they are in real time,” Allan Gidekel, CEO of Telectrónica said. “Zebra’s solutions empower healthcare organisations with a performance edge that helps reduce medical errors, improve regulation fulfilment and provide a higher quality of patient care. By intelligently connecting company assets, data and people in collaborative workflows with RFID technology, SMG has increased workforce productivity, reduced operating costs and driven significant operational efficiencies,” Alejandro Prosperi, sales director of SOLA region, Zebra said.
