During the symposium, the company will introduce ID Arsenal, its instrument identification solution that uses software equipped with stainless steel armored nanocircuits to manage the Supply and Sterilization Center. The RFID nanocircuits, which use radio frequency identification, are compatible with all hospital sterilization processes and can withstand extreme conditions of long-term use. With Valid’s solution, the process of registering and tracking surgical instruments is fully automated and meets the standards of the National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA – Agência Nacional de Vigilância Sanitária) and the regulations of the World Health Organization (WHO).
Symposium participants will also learn about the medical equipment control solution. The RFID Smart Labels can store any type of information about the item, communicating it to the reader. With these, inventory data is always updated and ready for retrieval.
According to Andriano Franki, the Commercial Superintendent of Payment Methods at Valid, the technology is capable of reducing spending, improving operating room release time and increasing patient safety. Franki also notes that another major benefit of the RFID system is that the instruments can be equipped with the chips in the factory, further expediting the process.
