Medical devices have always been an important cornerstone in the diagnosis and treatment of patients. As modern medicine has become more and more dependent on these devices, adequate availability and maintenance is all the more important. A clear identification of medical equipment and its use for inventory, tracking and maintenance seems essential in this context.
Both medical device manufacturers and hospitals are often facing the same issue: Which medical devices do I have in what condition and with which specifications at what location? Being able to answer these questions reliably is essential for patient safety, enables manufacturers to provide targeted support and offers hospitals enormous optimisation potential in terms of costs, availability and treatment quality. The unique identification of medical devices based on GS1 standards in combination with the oneIDentity+ service platform provides a comprehensive solution. This way, medical devices can be tracked, maintained and managed more quickly and reliably.
