RFID, Barcoding, Emerging Technologies for Hospitals Conference Announced

August 3, 2007 — The 6th Annual RFID, Barcoding & Emerging Technologies for Hospitals & Health Systems Conference, Sept. 24-26 2007 in Philadelphia PA, will feature hospital leaders speaking about their tracking technology applications.

According to the conference operator, “The International Quality & Productivity Center (IQPC), RFID, barcoding and other real time location systems are taking the forefront in improving hospital workflow processes and patient safety. However, rolling out a tracking program in your hospital is no simple task. Obtaining management support, selecting a vendor, establishing a compatible infrastructure and securing clinician buy-in, are only a few steps in this long, often arduous process. This conference will leap you years forward with your implementation through practical applications, lessons learned and best strategies from your peers who've already confronted the challenges.”

Highlights include:
- 14 hard-hitting case studies from your peers regarding technology selection, proving ROI, change management and other major obstacles to success
- 6 different applications of RFID including asset tracking, patient tracking, staff tracking and medication administration
- 3 barcoding application success stories for increased medication administration safety
- Use cases from several departments, including the emergency department, biomedical engineering and clinical department
- 3 groundbreaking applications of RFID including blood sample tracking, SIDS prevention and implantable human tags to access health records
- An interactive "Technology Showdown" panel to present different technologies and applications
- 4 practical workshops on RTLS basics, assessing ROI, asset/patient tracking and a multi-layered approach to tracking
- 4 hours of networking with your industry peers and tracking innovators

The event will feature sessions and workshops on many areas including:

- Broad Applications of RFID Resource Tracking
