RFID Journal Announces Second Annual RFID in Health Care Event
Leading hospitals will explain how they are using RFID to cut costs and improve patient outcomes at the conference, to be held in January 2009 in Las Vegas.
Oct 27, 2008—RFID Journal has announced that it will hold its second annual RFID in Health Care conference on Jan. 22, 2009, at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas. The event will be colocated with the third annual Leadership Summit on Healthcare Supply Chain Management, produced by World Congress.
"RFID in Health Care is the one event where you can hear health-care providers and leading early adopters share real-world case studies that reveal how radio frequency identification can be employed to cut costs and improve patient outcomes," says Mark Roberti, founder and editor of RFID Journal. "And it's the one event where health-care professionals can meet the leading RFID technology companies with solutions designed specifically for the needs of hospitals and clinics."
The conference program will focus on how all types of RFID technologies—active, Wi-Fi, passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF), passive high-frequency (HF) and more—can be utilized to improve hospital operations, monitor patients and automate billing procedures. Among the speakers confirmed for the program are:
• James L. Stroud, president and CEO, Golden State Medical Supply
• Jerome R. Gardner, VP of special projects and consulting services, Integris Health
• Scott Sullivan, business manager, University of California San Diego Medical Center
• Rajit Gadh, professor and director, University of California Los Angeles' Wireless Internet for Mobile Enterprise Consortium (WINMEC)
"We are extremely pleased to have leading hospitals that are already using RFID speaking at our second annual event," Roberti says. "This is a unique opportunity for hospitals to hear from those that have already dealt with the challenges of deploying RFID and achieved real benefits."
