Slideshow: RFID In Healthcare

Wi-Fi RFID is being used in many healthcare facilities to track patients, staff and expensive medical gear. Clinicians use it to locate important mobile medical testing equipment quickly, monitor confused patients wandering through hallways, and assist in asset management and patient flow.

These small Wi-Fi RFID tags from AeroScout are designed for tracking patients, staff and medical devices. The tags work with pre-existing, standard Wi-Fi networks, enabling hospitals to track people and medical equipment enterprise-wide -- without having to install dedicated RFID readers or a proprietary network. The tags can also be used for chokepoint detection, such as alerting staff when a wandering patient leaves the ward unattended, or for room and bay-level location, such as identifying a patient within a preoperative suite.
