BLOG DESCRIPTION

Are you using RFID/RTLS in the healthcare arena? If not, why not? If you are in healthcare and have problems locating equipment when needed, I hope you will come by during my presentation. On April 13th at 2:20 pm, I will be discussing how our facility, being a relatively small facility, deployed an enterprise wide RFID/RTLS system and had it pay for its self in less than a year. We have also installed temperature tracking to remotely monitor and respond to nourishment and medication refrigerators. This has been a huge success at TMC and a true nursing staff satisfier. We did this with limited capital and under the pressure of reduced staffing. Not to mention the building of a new hospital. Please come with questions. If any of you have been fortunate/unfortunate enough to hear me speak about RFID/RTLS, you know that this is a passion of mine and I can talk all day, given the opportunity. Gregg
