RFID: A Health(care)-conscious Technology

Bert Moore
Editor

The growing use of RFID in healthcare settings offers both opportunities and challenges.

Novel applications of RFID in healthcare seem to pop up every month. Two of these applications bear mentioning: thin RFID tags that monitor temperature and other metrics that can be applied as easily as an adhesive bandage (but without the adhesive) and development of remote monitoring devices that allow patients to get out of bed and walk around.

From patient wrist bands and doctor/patient ID badges to identify and locate individuals in the hospital, to RFID on medications to ensure patient safety, to RFID on surgical sponges to ensure none are left in the patient, to real time locating systems for moveable assets to improve patient care, RFID is becoming a key technology in today's healthcare environment.

That's one reason AIM's RFID Experts Group (REG) Healthcare Initiative (HCI) is so important.
