It’s Not About Technology, It’s About Value: Reasons Why RFID is Key in eHealth


Over the last two years, the healthcare industry has faced many changes and challenges related to time management, resource limitations, fast-evolving regulations, technology innovations and patient experience. Healthcare institutions are also tasked to quality medical care, increased efficiency and reduced cost. In this context RFID technology is aimed to facilitate seamless process integration and reduce system complexity while being as simple to use as possible. Indeed, a broad acceptance is mandatory to protect patient information across all processes beyond the theoretical security policy. Allowing authorized personnel to access sensitive data across different workstations must be convenient.

In addition to authentication of people, RFID technology helps identify tools and equipment to create cost reports and provide further information on the use.

This session will detail the benefits of using RFID technology to identify people and equipment, streamline processes and prevent mis-usage of (medical) tools in the healthcare industry. Integrating RFID intelligence to eHealth systems helps organizations maintain security and efficiency for both physical and digital environments — all while ensuring compliance to stringent healthcare regulations.
