RFID in Health Care 2021

March 16, 11:00 am - March 16, 2021, 1:00 pm

In the health-care field, hospitals and other medical facilities are employing RFID and IoT technologies to improve patient safety, increase asset utilization with real-time tracking, boost revenue with automated billing and reduce the incidence of medical errors using track-and-match applications. As of fall 2020, more than 60 million coronavirus cases have been reported worldwide. During this virtual event, learn how RFID and the Internet of Things are identifying and tracking COVID-19 outbreaks, enabling social distancing in the health-care environment, as well as the monitoring of vaccine distribution and improvements in efficiency.

New Wireless Sensors Apply Directly to Skin, Improving Collection of Patient Information
Penn State University researchers have developed a wearable sensor device that can be applied directly to an individual’s skin in order to measure his or her conditions, including temperature, heart rate and blood-oxygen levels. The device is designed to be applied directly to a person’s body like a temporary tattoo, and with a small wireless module leveraging Near Field Communication (NFC) RFID technology or inductive coupling, it can transmit data to a user’s smartphone. Hear how the team has developed a prototype and how the sensors might be used in the future.
Speaker: Huanyu (Larry) Cheng, Dorothy Quiggle Career Development Professor, Penn State University

Mission of the Century: Proven RFID and IoT Technology Ensures the Safety, Efficacy and Security of People, Vaccines, and Devices
COVID-19 and the importance of automation and digitization within a healthcare facility remain a concern, even as billions of vaccines are to be delivered worldwide. HID has taken a position to extend trusted identities to solve for many challenges that arise – vaccine lifecycle management, immunity identification, sterilization processes, patient monitoring, and facility infection controls. During this session, HID will showcase proven RFID/IoT applications to ensure critical steps are taken to secure medication/vaccine chain of custody, how immunity passports are being used across, automated medical device usage and digital sanitation processes. Furthermore, we will provide a sneak-peak into new real-time patient monitoring and demonstrate how BLE enabled RTLS simplifies contact tracing and forensic reporting for a safer environment.

Developing an RFID Strategy for Health Care
RFID can deliver a great deal of benefits to hospitals, pharmacies, long-term care communities and other medical facilities in many different areas. The technology can be used to improve patient safety, increase asset utilization with real-time tracking, boost revenue with automated billing and reduce the incidence of medical errors using track-and-match applications. This session will explain how to create a long-term strategy that can enable businesses to choose technologies that will best meet their ongoing needs across a wide variety of applications, as well as how to prioritize projects in the near term.
