RFID Journal Announces Speakers for Health-Care Event
Leading hospital executives will present case studies at RFID in Health Care West.
May 13, 2010—RFID Journal today announced a lineup of leading hospital executives who will present case studies at RFID in Health Care West, which will be held on June 15, 2010, at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel & Spa, in Los Angeles.
Among the featured speakers who will discuss their RFID deployments are:
• Shari Rubino, project manager III at the Kaiser Permanente San Jose Medical Center. Rubino will discuss how the facility has maximized its investment, and how it is driving user adoption and value by lowering rental-equipment costs, reducing time spent searching for assets and, ultimately, providing a safer care environment.
• Halsey Bagg, the St. Elizabeth Medical Center's director of cardiology services. Bagg will talk about how the center improved inventory management in its cardiac catheterization and electrophysiology labs with an RFID solution that automatically tracks implantable devices.
• Sam Itani, the VP of San Joaquin Community Hospital. Itani will describe how his hospital is employing a real-time location system (RTLS) as a solution to budget pressures, and how it utilizes the data from the system to make business decisions that result in a return on investment.
• Scott Sullivan, the business manager of the University of California's San Diego Medical Center. Sullivan will outline how an active RFID system enabled the facility to meet its process-improvement goals in order to maximize operational efficiency, as well as minimize required resources and related costs.
• Steve Merlo, Providence Health & Services' Los Angeles regional director of infrastructure and technology. Merlo will explain how to create success criteria for an RFID hospital implementation, how to evaluate such a system from a technical standpoint, and how his hospital chose the solutions it has deployed.
• Steve Montgomery, Genesis Health Systems' supervisor of logistics. Montgomery will reveal how an RFID solution reduced the time employees spent locating missing equipment from an average of 22 minutes to a maximum of 2 minutes.
"Hospitals are under tremendous pressure to reduce costs and become more efficient, and deploying RFID solutions is a proven way to do that," says Mark Robert, RFID Journal's founder and editor. "The speakers that have agreed to present real-world case studies at RFID in Health Care West will show how virtually any hospital can benefit from deploying an RFID system. There is no doubt in my mind that attendees will come away with information that will help them generate tens of thousands, or even hundreds of thousands, of dollars in annual savings for their organization."
In addition, RFID Journal will host a second health-care event, RFID in Health Care East, on Oct. 12. That conference will take place at the Radisson Plaza-Warwick Hotel, in Philadelphia.
