RFID Journal announced today that registration is now open for RFID in Health Care, the company's conference and exhibition focused on the use of radio frequency identification technology within the health-care sector.

RFID in Health Care will feature leading hospital executives explaining how they use RFID to improve asset-utilization rates, reduce expenses and improve patient outcomes. Early adopters will share the results of real-world deployments, and provide insights into the proper RFID technologies to employ for various applications, as well as ways to avoid common pitfalls. The presenters will also answer questions regarding the benefits they have achieved with RFID.

The conference, to be held on Nov. 20, 2014, at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place, in Chicago, Ill., will include an exhibit area showcasing the latest RFID solutions for the health-care industry, as well as presentations by the following speakers:

• Terry J. Broussard, Our Lady of Lourdes Regional Medical Center's VP of support services, will share how the facility has expanded its use of a real-time location system (RTLS) beyond asset management (see Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System Expands RTLS Usage).
• Elizabeth J. Hickle, Light of Hearts Villa's executive director, will discuss how the RTLS solution deployed by the facility is helping ensure residents' safety and comfort, while also improving the nursing staff's performance (see RFID Improves Safety at Assisted-Living Facility).
• Michael Hopkins, the director of supply chain operations and logistics at the University of Chicago Medical Center, will explain how an RFID-enabled kanban card system is improving efficiencies in the supply room by reducing costs and minimizing waste.
• Mark Rheault, Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center's director of enterprise visibility, will share how the hospital is expanding its use of RFID RTLS technology to increase benefits.
• David Rutherford, Riverside Methodist Hospital's nurse manager, will explain how the hospital improved hand-hygiene compliance by implementing a system of RFID-enabled hand-washing stations (see OhioHealth Tests System for Tracking Hand-Hygiene Compliance).

RFID in Health Care is designed for executives at hospitals or clinics considering using RFID technology within their facilities. Attendees registering early for the conference can save $250 off regular onsite rates.

"The benefits hospitals are achieving by tracking equipment via RFID are significant," says Mark Roberti, RFID Journal's founder and editor. "Companies are reducing capital expenditures on equipment by employing active systems to improve asset-utilization rates. They are better managing high-value inventories of drugs, implants and other medical devices, and they are improving hand-hygiene compliance, bed turnover rates, staff performance and much more."
