How to Choose the Right RFID System: A Step-by-Step Guide for Providers of Health Care
Hospital executives can save hundreds of hours of research time with this new guide, which explains the strengths and weaknesses of the different types of RFID technology and how to determine which one will meet your needs.

RFID Journal's editors created this special report to help health-care providers choose the RFID technology that can best meet their needs in both the short and long term. It is designed to walk decision-makers through the process of determining their needs, and then matching those requirements to the proper RFID system. This document provides detailed information regarding the performance characteristics, standards, strengths, weaknesses and common applications for each type of passive, active and battery-assisted RFID system. Because health-care providers are primarily interested in locating assets in real time, we have provided detailed information about the real-time location systems (RTLSs) offered for the health-care sector, including a breakdown of the different features of solutions on the market.
No report can conclusively determine the right RFID system for a particular organization's needs, but this guide will help those charged with selecting a system narrow the options. Our goal is to reduce the time hospitals spend researching the appropriate system, and to provide the information they need to choose a systems integrator and, perhaps, hardware and software providers (a good systems integrator will help with the technology-selection process).
