Medical monitoring: RFID technology enables rapid identification of all patients, registration of admission and effective first aid work. For specific applications, each patient wears a wristband label that contains various informations about the patient, such as first aid, all treatments and drug registration records. Medical staff can scan the label information with a handheld reader to know a large amount of information about the patient. RFID technology provides a reliable, efficient and economical method of information storage and testing, reducing hospital delays in emergency patients and reducing the incidence of medical malpractice. RFID technology also reduces unnecessary manual entry and avoids human error.
Newborn identity management anti-theft: hospital newborn babies are stolen, and replacements also occur from time to time. The mother and child information is written and paired one by one by RFID technology, and the newborn baby is monitored by the RFID identification device. When an attempt is made to steal a newborn from a hospital ward, the RFID identification device can detect the alarm in real time and notify the security guard of the latest location of the stolen baby.
In addition, RFID will also apply asset management, supply chain management and other technologies to the hospital's important assets and materials tracking and positioning applications and pharmaceutical supply chain management applications.
The picture below is from Technavio's report on RFID, ranking fifth in the medical industry.
In China, from the economic level, the health expenditure of residents has increased, and the policy of the country has been continuously reformed, which has promoted the informationization of the medical industry and promoted the construction of smart medical care. RFID technology started late in the medical industry, and the medical industry market is broad. Smart medical care and hospital information construction will promote the popularization of RFID in the medical industry.
