Four-Hundred Billion RFID Scans Reflect Innovative Solution
September 8, 2014
Frisco, Texas – ASD Healthcare, a division of AmerisourceBergen, announces exceeding 400 billion scans on their patented, radio frequency identification (RFID) inventory solution, Cubixx®. That translates to approximately 150 million scans read and reported each day.
Due to ASD Healthcare’s phenomenal growth, recognition of the 400 billionth scan almost went unnoticed. “We were transitioning system metrics, and noticed we hit a milestone number of reads,” said Chris Flori, Vice President of Business Innovation at ASD Healthcare. “With the increase in use of RFID technology, growth has been exponential. We expect hitting another major milestone within the next year and look forward to continuing to serve providers and patients with this time-saving technology.”
Innovative Solution for Healthcare
The milestone reflects the success of an innovative marriage between RFID technology and inventory management control for healthcare providers and patients. RFID tags utilize wireless capabilities to read and report unique, product identifiers automatically. By harnessing the RFID technology, ASD Healthcare created an alternative to traditional time-consuming and costly inventory management. The Cubixx solution streamlines logistics management—including inventory certainty, regulatory compliance and life-saving products—for hospitals, physicians and patients.
“Our abilities to track specialty therapeutics for hospitals, doctors’ offices and even patients’ homes comes from a lot of hard work,” said Flori. “The 400 billion mark reflects the dedication of our people.”
