RFID, Other Technologies Impacting Healthcare Facilities
December 15, 2017 - Contact FacilitiesNet Editorial Staff »
For many healthcare facilities, growth and profitability will depend upon a realignment of infrastructure to support new technologies, according to an article on the DataQuest website.
Technologies that are making a big impact on today’s modern healthcare facility include radio frequency identification (RFID), real-time location systems (RTLS) electronic medical records (EMR), self-service tools and robotics.
RFID and RTLS technologies can help ensure the safety of the most vulnerable patients and give healthcare facilities with the ability to identify, locate, track and monitor patients, visitors, staff, assets and equipment.
Value is maximized for both patients and the healthcare facility when this technology is integrated with the facility’s security, energy, building and power solutions.
