Health care systems provider GHX Mobile Solutions has released a new version of its SalesAccelerator hand held inventory management tool. The updated tool can read RFID tags as well as traditional bar codes, acknowledging the expanded usage of RFID technology in the health care industry.
With the new version of SalesAccelerator users can immediately detect and count RFID-tagged inventory on hand. As products are used and inventory counts are reduced, the user can use SalesAccelerator to generate a billing or restocking order, which can be fulfilled through GHX’s electronic trading exchange. Using the GHX system hospitals are better able to track their high-dollar item purchases, and suppliers can receive purchase orders as soon as their products are used in the operating room, eliminating lag times inherent in non-automated inventory systems.
GHX’s RFID interface is supported through two different RFID readers: the Sirit Plug-n-Play SDIO RFID reader and Socket Communications’ CF RFID Reader.
