Title: Application of RFID in an integrated healthcare environment
Conference Title: 28th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society
Abstract: Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is an evolving technology that can utilize its capabilities within a healthcare environment to locate and track staff, equipment, and patients. RFID has the potential to significantly improve operations by actively monitoring asset flow through an organization and enabling this data to be analyzed for process improvement. It can also help to provide validation to existing process improvement initiatives set forth by an institution. Furthermore, RFID can be integrated into other operations including patient safety, clinical operations, billing, and theft prevention. © 2006 IEEE.
