RFID Journal announced today its final agenda for RFID in Health Care, its conference and exhibition focused on the use of radio frequency identification technology within the health-care industry. The event will be held on Dec. 4, 2013, at the Georgetown University Hotel & Conference Center, located in Washington, D.C.

The conference, RFID Journal reports, will feature leading hospital executives explaining how they employ RFID to increase asset-utilization rates, reduce expenses and improve patient outcomes, and will provide a unique learning experience for health-care executives. Early adopters will share the results of real-world deployments, and answer questions regarding the benefits they have achieved with RFID.

The lineup will include the following speakers:
Terry J. Broussard, RN, BSN, MPA, Our Lady of Lourdes Regional Medical Center's VP of support services, sharing 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)
Bob Celeste, GS1 US' pharmaceutical sector lead, discussing the organization's standards for drug serialization and pedigree, and how they may impact companies
Kathi Cox, a project consultant with Texas Health Resources, and Winjie Tang Miao, the president of the Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Alliance, explaining how an RTLS solution has improved patient outcomes and a return on investment (ROI) at its Fort Worth site (see Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Finds RTLS Provides Many Benefits)
Stuart Grogan, the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center's radiology equipment manager, talking about how RFID has improved efficiency and reduced costs related to inspecting radiology vests (see Wake Forest Baptist Builds Its Own RFID Solution for Radiology Vest Inspection)
Akira Nakamura, Sanraku Hospital's general manager, describing how RFID can help improve patient safety and nurse work efficiency (see Hospitals in Japan, China Seek to Save Lives Via Pocketsize Reader)
Jodi Panzini, Concord Hospital's director of health information management, addressing the key aspects to consider when implementing an RFID supply chain management system, such as the one used at Concord Hospital
Adrienne Shepardson, Phar.D., the manager of central pharmacy services for the University of Maryland Medical Center's pharmacy department, sharing how RFID has reduced labor costs and provided a better understanding of hospital inventory (see Hospital Pharmacy Keeps Emergency Medication Kits in Check)

"Hospitals have been under pressure to cut costs without affecting patient care, and RFID is a proven way to do that," says Mark Roberti, RFID Journal's founder and editor. "This is the one event that health-care providers can attend to learn the many ways in which RFID can make their operations safer and more efficient—and, in some cases, actually improve patient outcomes."

RFID in Health Care, according to the event's organizers, will combine thought-provoking presentations, expert panelists and an exhibit area showcasing the latest RFID solutions for the health-care industry. Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet the leading technology companies and view their latest solutions. This conference is designed for executives at hospital or clinics considering deploying RFID technology within their facilities.
