Patient badges with passive RFID for identification enables physicians and staff to quickly access patient records from a variety of secure locations throughout the facility. The controls also can be programmed to recognize a RFID card carried by patients that will trigger room preferences based on individual choices.

The Disney cancer center's oncology e-medical record system, Mosaic from Impac, links in to the Meditech EMR used at its main hospital, St. Joseph Medical Center, which is a block away from the cancer center. The center also provides interfaces to connect its EMR with the various systems, such as Allscripts, used by its affiliated doctor practices, said Lowe.
