Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center's Disney Family Cancer Center is employing an innovative RFID solution to reduce patient anxiety and improve workflow between clinicians, patients and administrators. In this session, learn how the hospital deployed interrogators to relay information from low-profile passive RFID tags on patients' ID badges to centralized applications that retrieve patient information. This information includes patient preferences to activate custom hospital room settings—music, lighting and temperature—as well as location data that can be sent to the staff's phone displays, thereby enabling clinicians to greet or locate patients quickly. Information is also provided to the facility's security and environmental-control systems, thus maximizing the hospital's operational efficiencies.
