Patient Care Solutions

Radio frequency identification (RFID) has introduced dramatic new efficiencies in patient care. “Patient care” in the health care field is a broad term that addresses all aspects of the attention and treatment a patient receives while in your facility. From the time a patient walks into your facility to the time he or she leaves, everything that patient experiences has a direct impact on the level of care he or she receives.

Radio frequency technology can improve the care a patient receives in many ways, including:

Patient Tracking

RFID tags are attached to patients so that their exact location can be determined at all times.The ability to track all patients in real time has many benefits including:
 
  • Knowing a patient is in a wrong and potentially dangerous area of the facility
  • Verifying that an elderly or infirmed patient has not left your facility
  • Alerting staff when an infant has left the childbirth unit
  • Providing the ability for physicians to locate patients during rounds
  • Improving the workflow of doctors, nurses and other caregivers

Patient Identification

RFID tags are attached to patients so that they can be properly identified at all times. The ability to accurately and instantly identify a patient has far-reaching safety and care benefits including:
 
  • Reducing the misidentification of the patient which is a great concern for many health professionals. A national healthcare organization reported that these mistakes account for many unnecessary hospital deaths each year.
  • Verifying that you have the right patient, the right procedure and the right site. The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) recently stated that in reviewing all surgical errors, the most common involved surgery on either the incorrect body part or the wrong procedure for that patient.
  • Ensuring the proper identification of laboratory specimens
