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 (www.rfidjournalevents.com/healthcare), the premier industry event focused on the use of radio frequency identification technology within the health-care industry. 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. Case studies presented by health-care organizations already using RFID technologies, such as Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Northwestern University's Center for Comparative Medicine, the University of Tennessee Medical Center and Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, will help attendees determine the best RFID technology for their needs, learn best practices from early adopters, find the right technology partners and move forward with deployment.
"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."
RFID is now being deployed at hospitals and clinics around the world to improve asset-utilization rates; manage inventory of implants, drugs and other high-value items; reduce the incidence of lost and stolen equipment; improve patient flow; eliminate medical errors; increase hand-washing compliance; and achieve other significant benefits. The conference sessions will cover a wide variety of applications relevant to health-care organizations, including:
- Tracking assets
- Managing inventory
- Monitoring patients
- Preventing objects from being left behind
- Enhancing patient safety
- Managing the supply chain
- And much more
This year's event will also feature a new RFID for Medical Device Management seminar. This special program is designed for medical device manufacturers that want to learn how to use RFID to better track and manage their devices, as well as for hospitals and clinics looking to track instruments and ensure their proper use and sterilization. Presenters will explain which tags will work on specific types of medical devices and the software needed to manage such devices effectively.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet the leading technology companies and view their latest solutions. Event sponsors include Cardinal Health, Fujitsu, Terso Solutions and Zebra Technologies. Exhibitors will include AsReader, DeRoyal, HID Global, Jadak, Vuemed and many others. The event will also feature fast-track RFID Professional Institute Certified Associate training, provided by RFID4U.
