In any new application area, it’s easy to run into misconceptions or just flat-out errors about the applicability or challenges associated with a technology such as asset tracking. Asset tracking has a long, impressive track record in a wide variety of industries with similar supply chains and workflows as healthcare – such as industrial manufacturing and even retailing. Here are a few common myths and the real-worth truths about the utility of asset tracking in healthcare.

Reality: Asset tracking already is being widely used in a number of different healthcare segments other than hospitals. These include medical labs, emergency medical services, doctor’s offices and clinics, and even manufacturers of healthcare products, supplies and medications.
