RFID's Role in an Evolving Health-Care System
Bold new approaches are needed to help health care solve the fundamental business challenges of improving the cost-effectiveness of quality care. A new vision that encompasses investment in RFID technology and its role in providing critical insights is the first step in pursuit of this goal. This vision connects operational and utilization data via process and workflow automation to eliminate waste, reduce variability and prepare an organization for managing the complexities of episodic cost. While hospitals have long used technology such as RFID to address local tasks such as asset and inventory management, the time has come to move to a broader application of RFID across major segments and geographies to reduce the total cost of care and cope with new value-based models. Learn how the RFID strategies deployed by many providers and manufacturers have yielded strong results while establishing the foundation for the larger role RFID will play in health care.
