Radio frequency identification technologies are being deployed at numerous hospitals and clinics around the world to improve asset-utilization rates; manage inventories of implants, drugs and other high-value items; reduce the incidence of lost and stolen equipment; improve patient flow; decrease medical errors; increase hand-washing compliance; and achieve other significant benefits. To help medical facilities learn how they could benefit from deploying RFID, RFID Journal hosted its eighth annual RFID in Health Care conference and exhibition on Dec. 2-3, in San Francisco, Calif.

RFID in Health Care 2015, cornerstone-sponsored by Cardinal Health, presented case studies from several organizations already using RFID, in order to help attendees from the health-care sector determine the best technology for their needs, learn best practices from early adopters, find the right technology partners and move forward with deployment. This year's conference attracted 100 attendees, with sessions covering a variety of applications relevant to health-care organizations, such as tracking assets, managing inventory, monitoring patients, preventing objects from being left behind during surgery, ensuring patient safety and optimizing supply chain management.


This year's event featured a new co-located seminar, RFID for Medical Device Management, gold-sponsored by Terso Solutions. This seminar was designed for medical device manufacturers looking to use RFID to monitor and manage their products, as well as for hospitals and clinics that need to track instruments and ensure their proper use and sterilization. Presenters explained which RFID tags work on specific types of medical devices, along with the software required to manage such devices effectively.

Attendees had the opportunity to meet technology companies and view their latest solutions. In addition, guests could sign up for a fast-track RFID certification course. The RFID Professional Institute's Certified Associate Training, presented in partnership with RFID4U, offered a combination of lectures and hands-on lab exercises, providing a functional understanding of readers, tags, printers and general-purpose input-output devices, and a foundation on which to design, install, configure, monitor and troubleshoot an RFID deployment. Each participant received a voucher to take the exam online following the event.
