The Future of Inventory Management

A More Effective Way to Track Inventory

Trying to track inventory effectively and safely in procedural areas can be a challenge. Some people take items because they might be needed elsewhere. Others bring items in and do not use them. The result is inventory you don’t know you have and inventory you think you have but don’t. In short, you have inaccurate counts causing you to order too much or too little replenishment product. The solution? QSight RFID.


QSight RFID combines this innovative technology with Owens & Minor’s end-to-end perpetual inventory management system. This powerful, easy-to-use solution enables you to track products as they enter and leave your procedural area, obtain fast and accurate inventory counts, and provide you with critical information to better manage your supply chain. Equally important, it provides you visibility into your current inventory—total amounts and locations.

Our RFID solutions are easily scalable. You can start small in a single location. Then, as you work the RFID technology into your workflow, you can quickly expand to other locations.
We can configure our RFID solutions to fit your needs. Whether you have a small storage room or a large procedural area, our solutions can be customized to fit any location.
Our RFID solutions provide you counts that are up to 99.9% accurate, enabling a user to identify missing and/or misplaced items quickly and easily.
Actionable Information
The data collected from the RFID scans is instantly conveyed to your QSight dashboard where it is turned into actional information, enabling you to make smarter, faster decisions.

How it Works

RFID tags are placed on products at the hospital
Barcodes and RFID tags are scanned into QSight
Tags are read by RFID readers affixed to cabinets or in storage rooms
Data is transmitted to QSight
The data is analyzed in QSight for actionable insights

Owens & Minor offers two RFID solutions to meet your needs

Open Architecture Solution
• Fixed and hand-held units for storage rooms.

What is Ultra-High Frequency Radio Frequency (UHF) RFID

UHF RFID identification is an automatic wireless communication technology that allows users to read data from a distance. Owens & Minor uses UFT because it is the highest frequency available for RFID, enabling over 900 reads a second of RFID tags.

RFID Integrated with QSight Solution

Owens and Minor’s RFID solutions are tightly integrated within QSight. The data collected by our RFID devices is instantly conveyed to QSight. By logging into QSight, you can see inventory counts available in specified storage areas—items that should be there and those that should not—and counts of items that are not there but should be.
