Clinic Gains Efficiency, Safety With RFID

  • TAGS

A cancer center is employing EPC Gen 2 RFID tags to track the amount of time that each patient awaits radiation treatment, and to verify that the correct equipment is being employed. The facility treats approximately 100 patients daily, using one internal and four external radiation machines. In addition to requiring efficiency, the clinic must also ensure that the proper equipment is utilized with each patient, in order to properly immobilize the correct body part prior to radiation. A solution was installed that enables the cancer center to track the locations of tagged individuals and equipment throughout its two buildings.
