RFID applications in the hospital environment

RFID technology developer ThingMagic is in the midst of a 100-day online campaign to discuss "100 Uses of RFID." Last week, healthcare took center stage, as the Cambridge, Mass.-based vendor highlighted the "batteryless imperative" of using cost-effective, "passive" RFID technology to help ensure patient safety; how the Roy and Patricia Disney Family Cancer Center in Burbank, Calif., is employing RFID badges to improve the patient experience; and how hospitals have improved inventory control and management with such technology.
