Case Study: Keeping Vaccines Safe Using IoT in the Healthcare Supply Chain

Challenges

Retail pharmacies require accurate temperature monitoring to ensure biologics, OTC drugs, and vaccines remain safe-to-give. Onset, a leader in traditional temperature monitoring, had an existing solution that relied on one-to-one Bluetooth connections with their temperature loggers. The process required significant time from employees to keep store data up-to-date and maintain regulatory compliance.

Solution

With the new solution, the Onset temperature monitor sends individual logger temperature data via Bluetooth Low Energy to the Rigado gateway, where it is centrally processed and sent at scheduled intervals to the InTempConnect cloud-based data platform – whose data excursions trigger automatic email and SMS notifications.

Results

By leveraging Rigado wireless edge infrastructure, Onset has been able to successfully roll out their InTemp temperature monitoring solution to over 500 healthcare sites and retail pharmacies across the US, ensuring flexibility and compliance across national chains and pharmaceutical companies and reducing employee workload per site.
