Schreiner MediPharm And Kit Check Offer Automated Medication Management For Hospitals

Correct medication management in hospitals can save lives. Drugs that are equipped with RFID labels can be traced from the hospital pharmacy to the administration to the patient and their availability can be guaranteed. The prerequisite is that the RFID label and tracking system fit together perfectly. The new partnership between pharmaceutical label specialist Schreiner MediPharm and the US company Kit Check, manufacturer of RFID tracking software and hardware, will ensure this in the future.

With the RFID labels developed by Schreiner MediPharm in combination with the tracking solution from Kit Check, hospital pharmacies can track the entire inventory and use of their medication and manage it using intelligent software. For example, a large number of syringes and vials that are equipped with an RFID label can be automatically read by the kit check scanning station in order to identify their batch number and their expiry date. This automatically creates an inventory report that shows which medication is missing or is expiring. This not only saves hospital staff a lot of time, it also reduces the risk of medication errors and contributes to patient safety.

Compatible and particularly powerful RFID labels are a prerequisite for working RFID solutions from Kit Check. To this end, the company checks the technical skills of the label manufacturer and its conformity with the kit check standards with regard to certified inlays, EPC (Electronic Product Codes), serialization activities and quality processes. If these requirements are met, he receives the label "Kit Check certified label manufacturer".

“The innovative, RFID-based tracking software and hardware from Kit Check fits perfectly with our portfolio of smart label-integrated RFID solutions. The special design of our tailor-made, particularly robust labels ensures reliable readability via the kit check systems and thus enables a safe and efficient supply chain in hospitals, ”explains Stefan Wiedemann, Senior Director Strategic Marketing and Business Development at Schreiner MediPharm, about the cooperation.

Tim Kress-Spatz, co-founder of Kit Check, also welcomes the collaboration: “We know that Schreiner MediPharm has launched unique innovations in the pharmaceutical sector - including functional labels with an integrated hanger, tamper evidence and tactile security elements. We are very much looking forward to the joint innovations that we will bring to the market through this partnership. ”
