RFID Journal announced today that leading hospitals and health-care providers that are using radio frequency identification technologies will present case studies at the eighth annual RFID in Health Care conference and exhibition. Cardinal Health will be the cornerstone sponsor for this week's event, which will be held on Dec. 2-3, in San Francisco, Calif.

This conference was created to help hospitals and clinics learn how radio frequency identification technology could benefit them. Case studies presented by health-care organizations already employing RFID—such as Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Northwestern University's Center for Comparative Medicine, the University of Tennessee Medical Center and Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center (see Memorial Sloan-Kettering Is 'RFID-Ready', University of Tennessee Medical Center OR Monitors Supplies, Safety Via Trash Bins, Wake Forest Baptist Builds Its Own RFID Solution for Radiology Vest Inspection and Wake Forest Baptist Develops System for Tracking Blood Temperature)—are intended to 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.

"Hospitals are under increasing pressure to cut costs and become more efficient," said Mark Roberti, RFID Journal's founder and editor. "At this event, they will hear numerous case studies of how some hospitals are doing exactly that with RFID technologies."

RFID is 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 incidence of lost and stolen equipment; improve patient flow; eliminate medical errors; increase hand-washing compliance; and achieve other significant benefits. The conference sessions will cover a wide variety of applications relevant to health-care organizations, including tracking assets, managing inventory, monitoring patients, preventing objects from being left behind, enhancing patient safety and managing the supply chain.

This year's event will also feature a new RFID for Medical Device Management seminar. This special program is designed for medical device manufacturers wanting to learn how to use RFID to better track and manage their devices, as well as for hospitals and clinics looking to track instruments and ensure their proper use and sterilization. Presenters will explain which tags will work on specific types of medical devices and the software needed to manage such devices effectively.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet the leading technology companies and view their latest solutions. Exhibitors will include the event's sponsors—Cardinal Health, Fujitsu, Terso Solutions and Zebra Technologies—as well as such companies as AsReader, DeRoyal, HID Global, Jadak and Vuemed. The event will also feature fast-track RFID Professional Institute Certified Associate training, provided by RFID4U.
