STARK MD — PASSIVE RFID TECHNOLOGY FOR COMPLETE MEDICAL INVENTORY MANAGEMENT
Customized solutions for clinical care environments
and field inventory management systems
Stark MD gives you real-time tracking
on high-value, high-use assets such as
IV pumps and monitors.
Stark MD integrates the proven advantages of passive RFID technology for asset tracking (no line-of-sight restrictions, automated real-time data capture, and the ability to track thousands of assets simultaneously) with customized medical inventory management software. Passive RFID tags don’t use a battery, as the RFID reader supplies the power — the reader’s radio waves activate the antenna inside the passive RFID tag, which responds with its encoded memory. Passive RFID tags offer cost and size efficiencies, as their small size and lack of a battery make them less expensive to manufacture, and ideal for pharmaceuticals and small medical devices. With Stark MD, clinicians know where to find the assets they need, to offer better patient care and improved outcomes.

Customized RFID integration with your clinical environment or field inventory management system
Stark MD eliminates the time nurses spend looking for mobile assets.
Your customized Stark MD solution begins with an on-site assessment and evaluation of your clinical environment or field inventory management system. Our RFID application developers dial in on the challenges presented by your operating environment, patient care, inventories on multiple floors and asset movement. If your nurses spend time searching for diagnostic equipment, we can recommend placement of RFID interrogators and re-map your processes and asset storage to cut response times.
Stark MD automates your medical inventory management and asset tracking, combining our customized RFID software with passive RFID hardware and UHF tags or labels.
End-to-end supply chain visibility for complete traceability
Stark MD closes the loop on
your e-pedigree compliance.
Stark MD reads your tamper-proof RFID-tagged assets automatically, complying with all current and pending legislation and e-pedigree initiatives. Each medical asset can be assigned a unique ID number for end-to-end supply chain visibility, to help prevent counterfeiting, loss and theft. This solution creates an audit trail with documented proof for complete traceability, tracking the asset’s chain-of-custody path from delivery through use and disposal.
Better process control for improved outcomes
and increased patient satisfaction
Stark MD lets your clinicians spend
more time with their patients.
Stark MD is designed to make healthcare delivery more efficient and effective. Larger healthcare systems, with multiple patient care and inventory locations, will see an immediate improvement in loss prevention and inventory control. Our solution’s automated real-time updates, integrated with your ERP system and clinical hardware, support improved outcomes through the elimination of input error, loss and stocking shortages.
