Application: Interactive inventory storage device, system, and method (Patent ID: US20230410045A1)

The patent filed by Becton Dickinson and Co. describes systems and methods for automated inventory management of medicine and healthcare items stored in bins at care facilities. The method involves using an interactive storage device attached to a bin to display a visual representation of the local inventory, updating the inventory based on user input, synchronizing the inventory with other bins via communication interfaces, and receiving periodic updates for a local cache. The system includes a mobile inventory device with a processor, memory, and communication interface that can be attached to a storage bin, allowing for the association of the device with a bin, storage of local inventory, wireless synchronization with other bins, and identification of bins storing specific items based on the inventory.

The patent also includes claims related to user authentication for accessing bins, detecting changes in bin contents, recording access logs, using NFC devices for bin detection, providing alerts for improper bin placement, and enabling remote requests for identifying bins. The method and system outlined in the patent aim to streamline inventory management in care facilities by automating processes such as inventory tracking, user authentication, and bin monitoring, ultimately improving efficiency and accuracy in managing healthcare items stored in bins.
