Wisconsin based RFID tech company Terso has partnered with British public sector IT specialist Ingenica to create a medical device tracking solution employing RFID technology for the British national healthcare provider, the NHS.

Ingenica's 360/Atticus solution, an inventory management and supply chain tool with costing down to the patient level and beyond, can now be integrated to use Terso's automated inventory solutions.

Managing large volumes of high-value medical devices is challenging in the NHS. RFID technology is being adopted by hospitals across the UK to tag equipment.

Nicola Hall, managing director at Ingenica Solutions, said, "We are pleased to be working with Terso. Adding the Terso technology and capability to our solution expands our data capture options for customers and enables one system to manage the various multiple challenges we find healthcare providers need to solve."

Joe Pleshek, CEO at Terso Solutions, said, "Working with Ingenica on offering an innovative solution for automated inventory management in the UK is very exciting. This partnership affords hospitals the ability to track inventory in real-time and improve supply chain processes using RFID technologies. This will mitigate costs, increase efficiency, and improve patient outcomes."
