RFID in Health Care West Report

Approximately 75 attendees gathered last month in Los Angeles to learn how the latest RFID systems are helping health-care providers improve patient care while lowering costs. View the presentations from the event.
Jul 12, 2010—Hospitals across North America are achieving improved patient outcomes and/or a financial return on investment (ROI) by employing radio frequency identification to monitor patients and assets, collect information automatically and reduce medical errors. At RFID in Health Care West, RFID Journal's fourth health-care event, approximately 75 professionals attended presentations from leading health-care providers and early adopters who shared real-world case studies revealing the business benefits of RFID, to help them move from one-off applications to an infrastructure approach to the technology.

The presenters explored how hospitals and health-care organizations are utilizing RFID to improve patient monitoring and safety, increase asset utilization with real-time tracking, boost revenue with automated billing, reduce errors by tracking medical devices, enhance supply chain efficiencies and more. The conference was held on June 15, 2010, at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel & Spa, in Los Angeles, Calif.

Mark Roberti, RFID Journal's founder and editor, opened the conference with a discussion of RFID basics for health-care professionals. Roberti helped seminar attendees understand the various types of RFID technologies and the applications for each, including active, battery-assisted and passive technologies—both high-frequency (HF) and ultrahigh-frequency (UHF). He outlined how RFID can be deployed to track various assets, and also offered a brief overview of EPCglobal's standards, and their relevance to the health-care industry.
