In this episode, we jump into a conversation between Cory Turner, senior director of Healthcare Strategy at Tecsys, and Keith Hoffman from Terso, an RFID inventory management solution provider. They discuss automating error-prone processes, mitigating loss in the cold chain, recovery of labor and how to find comfort when that dreaded JCAHO audit comes around. Cory and Keith examine some of the most common RFID technologies leveraged in the clinical setting, and explore the business drivers behind them.
