TRACK AND TRACE LINEN IN HOSPITALS

The biggest challenge that faces the hospital industry is the growing cost of linen supplies and the difficulty of managing the inventory of bed sheets,  towels, robes, uniforms and other washable garments.
We supply heat and steam proof labels to track hospital linen.

The high cost of cotton has made all kinds of linen a very attractive target for the thieves. Traceability is becoming increasingly important, by validating information related an item to improve security.
Some of the issues that increase expenditure include theft, damage to items, and invoicing discrepancies. Keeping track of the work flowing into and out of the hospital laundry is just as important as the laundry process itself.

INDUSTRIAL HOSPITAL LAUNDRY

Heat seal labels onto linen to track and trace.

Before RFID took hold on uniform tracking, barcoding was the main semi-automated solution for uniform and laundry management systems. Even though RFID provides much more efficient and automated tracking, barcode solutions are still used in many industries such as in hotels, for uniform and linen inventory management as well as in commercial dry cleaner facilities.

Barcode solutions are a great option for low volume low cost deployments for smaller entities, mainly because the hardware component costs are much lower. The labels are typically less costly than RFID tags and barcode scanners are cheaper than RFID readers.
