Leading Hospitals and Health-Care Centers to Be Featured at RFID in Health... NEW YORK, Dec. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- RFID Journal announced today that leading hospitals and health-care providers that are using RFID technologies will present case studies at the eighth annual RFID in Health Care conference and exhibition (, the premier industry event focused on the use of radio frequency identification technology within the health-care industry.

Leading Hospitals and Health-Care Centers to Be Featured at RFID in Health...

Cardinal Health will be the cornerstone sponsor for the event, which will be held on Dec. 2-3, in San Francisco, Calif. This event is designed to help hospitals and clinics learn how RFID could benefit them. "Hospitals are under increasing pressure to cut costs and become more efficient," said Mark Roberti, RFID Journal's founder and editor.

"At this event, they will hear numerous case studies of how some hospitals are doing exactly that with RFID technologies. " This year's event will also feature a new RFID for Medical Device Management seminar. SOURCE RFID Journal Related Links. How to heal a wound care product’s life cycle concerns. Alliqua BioMedical is known for developing wound care options, including MIST Therapy, a painless ultrasound treatment that accelerates the natural wound healing process.

How to heal a wound care product’s life cycle concerns

But with a plan for expansion into new applications and markets, Alliqua knew it needed an updated platform. To do this, Alliqua chose to partner with product development company, Logic PD to help design, engineer and manufacture their next generation device and platform. The Logic PD design team began by working with Alliqua on a study of similar products to better understand the expectations of the device.

Field studies were conducted at healthcare facilities to learn about healthcare professionals and patient experiences with the existing product. How RFID Technology Improves Hospital Care. When redesigning the new and expanded emergency room at the Mayo Clinic’s Saint Marys Hospital in Rochester, Minnesota, Mayo leaders didn’t just want to add more rooms and square feet.

How RFID Technology Improves Hospital Care

They saw it as an opportunity to completely transform the operation to improve care and the patient experience and to lower costs. To that end, they decided to have a team study how care is delivered, identify the barriers to smooth operations, and fix the barriers. In other words, they created a living lab of the Clinic’s largest emergency department. The successful experience illustrates the role that relatively simple technology (e.g., an RFID system) and a multidiscipline team of clinicians and people from other fields can play in improving the quality and cost of care delivery processes and the steps that can ease the way to applying such an approach.

Podiatry Clinic Steps Into RFID for Tool Tracking. Michigan podiatry clinic Great Lakes Foot and Ankle Specialists has automated the tracking of surgical instruments or tools used on its patients via radio frequency identification, in order to speed up the process of packing the tools onto trays, ensure that no instruments are left inside a patient or misplaced, and track their lifespan.

Podiatry Clinic Steps Into RFID for Tool Tracking

The Surgical Safety Scanner system, provided by startup Surgical Scanner, of Brighton, Mich., consists of passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) tags, handheld readers and software to manage the collected read data. The software also links each tag ID number with a particular instrument's photos, manufacturer, part number and history. The solution enables the clinic to overcome several challenges, says Jeff Szczepanski, a physician at the facility. Installation of RFID system begins at GRH. Installation of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tagging system to prevent theft of babies began at Government Rajaji Hospital here on Monday by a team from Anna University along with third-party vendors.

Installation of RFID system begins at GRH

The RFID system, generally used in supermarkets and malls to catch shop lifters, was suggested by the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court in September 2015 during the hearing of a baby theft case. The project, presently carried out as a pilot at the GRH, will be replicated across all government hospitals by the government depending on its success. Sources at the GRH said that while some private players came with a proposal to implement the system with an initial cost as high as Rs. 3 crore, Anna University had proposed to do it with an initial cost of around Rs. 23 lakh. The university team had completed its feasibility study and the installation work was expected to take three weeks. Dean M.R.

RFID Tag Helix Antenna Sensors for Wireless Drug Dosage Monitoring - Journal of Translational Engineering in Health and Medicine. Illustration of the proposed real time drug delivery monitoring system. Utilizing the antenna drug dosage sensors, a smart phone can track the drug volume in multiple drug delivery devices. Miniaturized helix antennas are integrated with drug reservoirs to function as RFID wireless tag sensors for real-time drug dosage monitoring. The general design procedure of this type of biomedical antenna sensors are proposed based on electromagnetic theory and finite element simulation. A cost effective fabrication process is utilized to encapsulate the antenna sensor within a bio-compatible package layer using PDMS material, and at the same time form a drug storage or drug delivery unit inside the sensor.

Wyoming Medical Center has installed a new RFID-based solution at 14 of its supply rooms to provide easier access to crucial inventory and relieve medical staff from searching for critical supplies. The StockBox RFID solution from LogiTag has already saved the facility nearly $400,000 in labor for counting and re-stocking items. In addition, optimized inventory visibility has eliminated stock-outs, expired items and waste. LogiTag's RFID-enabled StockBox has been installed at 14 supply rooms at Wyoming Medical Center.

The solution is in the process of being rolled out to the operating room at Wyoming Medical Center. Prior to the RFID solution, WMC leased an automated supply cabinet solution that cost about $175,000 per year to maintain. Battlefield Breakthoughs: RFID Technology Moves Prosthetic Hands. A technology with roots in World War II is now enabling amputees to program their prosthetic hands. It’s RFID, radio frequency identification. The KERA radio story. Sean McHugh lost his right hand and part of his forearm in a construction accident 11 years ago. Today he wears a high-tech prosthetic arm with a sophisticated multi-articulated hand. Now the way it usually works is electrodes in the arm socket pick up movements of certain muscles and that moves the hand.
