Future-Proofing Health Care With AI
Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly growing in popularity throughout various industries, and its potential impact in the health-care sector is genuinely life-changing. Driving innovations in clinical operations, drug development, surgery and data management, AI technology is also finding its way into hospitals and medical facilities. In this session, AI pioneer and digital technology specialist Terence Mills will explore some of the newest applications of AI that are poised to revolutionize health care.
Speaker: Terence Mills, CEO and Chairman of the Board,

Johnson & Johnson Improves Product Availability For Orthopedic Loaner Sets With RFID
RFID Journal Award 2020 Winner: Best Health-Care RFID Implementation. Getting the right products at the right place at the right time is critical to the orthopedic loaner set replenishment process at Johnson & Johnson Supply Chain (JJSC). Orthopedic products are delivered to customers in loaner sets for each individual surgery. A set contains hundreds of products because surgeons don’t know exactly which products they need until the procedure is underway. The surgeon will utilize some products in the set and return the unused products to our distribution centers for reconciliation and restocking. Although the firm already used RFID to track the complete loaner set, they needed a standard solution that would work throughout the entire supply chain. Key takeaways: Learn how JJSC improved the orthopedic loaner set replenishment process while standardizing RFID tagging with GS1 EPC standards. Hear how the time saved as a result of the deployment has resulted in an improved cycle time and improved product availability.
Speaker: Blair Korman, Senior Manager, Digital Identification & Traceability,  Johnson & Johnson Supply Chain

Preventing Patient Injuries With Wearable Sensors
A recent study by CDC found out that among older adults, falls are the leading cause of both fatal and non-fatal injuries. As mobile and personal health devices gain in popularity, increasing amounts of data are collected via embedded sensors, such as heart-rate monitors and accelerometers. Hear how AI (artificial intelligence) and machine learning can be used to detect falls, by analyzing real data obtained from digital wireless wristbands used at health-care facilities. In addition to detecting falls, the same information can be used to recognize different forms of human motion to ultimately create a better predictor of fall possibility. Results show a significant improvement in motion-recognition rate, while overall accuracy involving seven selected activity classes is greater than 90 percent, compared to the most recent literature at 54 percent.
Speaker: Ismail Uysal, Director of RFID Lab for Applied Research and Assistant Professor, University of South Florida

Thurs., Oct. 1, 10:00 AM – 10:30 AM
Disabled Services Organization Improves Efficiency With NFC
U.K.-based disability services organization Leonard Cheshire is using a NFC-based solution to manage the servicing of 30,000 assets across 159 sites throughout the United Kingdom, ensuring that it meets safety standards, promptly addresses any problems and reduces the amount of time workers spend filling out paperwork. Key takeaways: To meet the needs of the U.K.’s disabled population, Leonard Cheshire not only provides housing but must manage each facility and the related care equipment used within. The organization needs to know that all equipment is compliant with regulations, if and when it was physically inspected, and whether there are problems at any specific sites. Learn how the use of the technology has reduced labor hours, increased the speed at which goods are repaired and improved safety.
Speakers: Jon-Paul Shrosbree, HSE Support Officer, Health & Safety Policy, Leonard Cheshire
Karl Monet, Health, Safety and Environmental Manager, Leonard Cheshire

Transforming the Vaccine Supply Chain With IoT
CSafe Global provides thermal, temperature-controlled air cargo containers designed to deliver drugs and vaccines to global destinations within specific temperature ranges. The firm has thousands of active air cargo containers which are used to move vaccines and other products in controlled conditions supporting the life-sciences market. Internet of Things (IoT) sensors built into its temperature-controlled containers, enables its customers, life science companies and shippers, to view and manage conditions at which products travel, as well as their location at any given time. With vaccines now under development and in clinical trials to address the problem of COVID-19 transmission, learn how CSafe Global is poised to be part of the solution in distributing vaccines to those who need them.
Speaker: Tom Weir, COO, CSafe Global

Hospital Uses RFID to Improve Visibility of Operating Room Uniforms and Control Inventory
RFID Journal Awards Finalist: Best Health-Care RFID Implementation. Jewish General Hospital, an acute-care teaching hospital with 637 beds in Montreal, Quebec, Canada is effectively using RFID technology to track and replenish its inventory of operating room (OR) uniforms. Although often overlooked, the hospital designed and implement an improved logistics uniform distribution system within the facility to provide control of the inventory by stabilizing the demand for uniforms. Takeaways: Learn how the technology is controlling the inventory and preventing losses and theft while ensuring the availability of all sizes at all times for all OR personnel. Hear why technology also improves infection control and prevents cross-contamination in the operating room.
Speakers: David Diachidos, Chief of Laundry and Linen Service, Jewish General Hospital
Georges Bendavid, Technical Services Director, CIUSSS West-Central Montreal
