Meridian Health, which operates five New Jersey hospitals and a home-care service, has developed an RFID-enabled journal to improve medication management and offer greater independence and safety to patients with chronic diseases, when they are not in a health-care setting. The journal uses an active RFID tag that logs a patient's reported pain at home, as well as the effectiveness of any medication he or she takes to reduce discomfort. Learn how the system is connecting patients with doctors without requiring them to visit an office or hospital.
