This year's RFID in Health Care event, focused on the use of radio frequency identification technology within the health-care industry, will feature a new co-located RFID for Medical Device Management seminar, sponsored by Fujitsu, Terso Solutions and Zebra Technologies. The conference and exhibition, cornerstone-sponsored by Cardinal Health, will be held on Dec. 2-3 in San Francisco, Calif.

RFID technologies are now being deployed at hospitals and clinics around the world to improve asset-utilization rates; manage inventory of implants, drugs and other high-value items; reduce the likelihood of equipment becoming lost or stolen; improve patient flow; decrease the incidence of medical errors; increase hand-washing compliance; and achieve other significant benefits.

The RFID for Medical Device Management program, to be held on Dec. 3, is designed for device manufacturers that want to learn how to use RFID to better track and manage those devices, as well as for hospitals and clinics looking to monitor instruments and ensure that they are properly used and sterilized. Presenters will explain which tags will work on specific types of medical devices, as well as the software required to manage such devices effectively.

"This is a great opportunity for medical device manufacturers and distributors to learn how to tag their inventory and use RFID to track and manage high-value devices," says Mark Roberti, RFID Journal's founder and editor. "And they'll have a chance to meet some of the companies providing hardware and software solutions specific to their needs."

RFID in Health Care will feature case studies presented by health-care organizations already using RFID technologies, such as Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Northwestern University, Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center and the University of Tennessee Medical Center (see Memorial Sloan-Kettering Is 'RFID-Ready', Wake Forest Baptist Builds Its Own RFID Solution for Radiology Vest Inspection, Wake Forest Baptist Develops System for Tracking Blood Temperature and University of Tennessee Medical Center OR Monitors Supplies, Safety Via Trash Bins). The event will help attendees determine the best RFID technology for their needs, learn best practices from early adopters, find the right technology partners and move forward with deployment.

Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to meet the leading technology companies and view their latest solutions. Exhibitors will include DeRoyal, HID Global, Jadak, Terso, Vuemed and many others. The event will also include fast-track RFID Professional Institute Certified Associate training, provided by RFID4U.

Attendees registering by Nov. 20 can save $150 off onsite rates. More information is available at the RFID in Health Care website, www.rfidjournalevents.com/healthcare, or by contacting attendee registration via e-mail at healthcare@rfidjournal.com or by phone at (631) 249-4960.
