Technologies of identification by radio frequencies (RFID) experience a fast development and healthcare is predicted to be one of its major growth areas. After briefly introducing the common terminology of the RFID field and its current standards, this paper describes how this emerging technology can be used to build a smart hospital. Indeed, used in combination with mobile devices in eHealth applications, RFID helps optimizing business processes in healthcare and improve patient safety. The… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

RFID Technology for Management and Tracking: e-Health Applications
TLDR
This contribution describes a basic RFID system for tracking and managing assets in hospitals, aiming to provide additional details about implementation aspects that must be considered to ensure proper functionality of the system.
The advantages and disadvantages of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) in Health-care Centers; approach in Emergency Room (ER)
TLDR
This study reviewed the literature on the RFID applications in healthcare and identified some experience in the entire world that can be used to guide future research in this field.
Applying RFID Technology to Improve User Interaction in Novel Environments
TLDR
This paper describes the development and implementation of three different case studies, actually implementing the concept of context-awareness, location awareness and Internet of Things, and describes a RFID system that presents a digitalized table with RFID technology which executes collaborative tasks in a meeting room, face-to-face or remotely.
Analysis and Formal Model of RFID-Based Patient Registration System
TLDR
This paper transforms the UML based model into formal model by writing formal specification of the system to improve accuracy and efficiency of PRS, and development time, testing and maintenance cost in building RFID based PRS software is reduced to a great extent.
A Review of IoT Sensing Applications and Challenges Using RFID and Wireless Sensor Networks
TLDR
Two emerging trends in IoT are reviewed: the combination of RFID and WSNs in order to exploit their advantages and complement their limitations, and wearable sensors, which enable new promising IoT applications.
Design a Petri Net Model for a Smart Hospital System
TLDR
The Petri Net model proposed in this paper can be used in different levels with proper and purposefully development and it is easy to transform the initial heuristic selection criteria in formalized procedures of model construction.
Responding to Dangerous Accidents Among the Elderly: A Fall Detection Device with Zigbee-Based Positioning
TLDR
The main objective is to reduce the time taken for emergency personnel to respond to falls among the elderly and to potentially serve as a predictor of falls through the interpretation of mobility and gait patterns related to step counts.
Enchanted Life Space: Adding Value to Smart Health by Integrating Human Desires
TLDR
‘Smartness’ should not be the ultimate value for patients using smart technologies; instead of focusing on individual smart devices, the space around people and their relation to each object should be considered so that the combination of space and objects brings an ‘enchanted’ experience to user.
Infection tracing in smart hospitals
TLDR
A systematic infection detection framework utilizing mobile communication technologies including mobile networking and encounter statistics during infection breakouts is introduced, targeting smart connected hospitals using Internet of things.
Towards Vision-Based Smart Hospitals: A System for Tracking and Monitoring Hand Hygiene Compliance
TLDR
This work proposes a non-intrusive vision-based system for tracking people's activity in hospitals, and demonstrates promising results for reducing hospital acquired infections.

RFID: From Concepts to Concrete Implementation
TLDR
The distributed software architecture of a J2EE based assets tracking application, called RFIDLocator, is further described, which allows to trace electronically labeled objects within a predefined area.
The Smart Box Application Model
TLDR
This paper proposes the usage of a software framework, based on the Smart Box application model, for the development of applications or appliances of the Smart boxes application domain and shows that the model is adequate to describe the Smart box applicationdomain and that the framework decreases the development effort of Smart Box applications.
The value of handhelds in smart environments
TLDR
This work identifies the means by which smart objects can make use of handheld devices such as PDAs and mobile phones, and derive the following major roles of handhelds in smart environments: mobile infrastructure access point; user interface; remote sensor; mobile storage medium; and weak user identifier.

In this paper, we introduce a smart appliance for consumer healthcare called "Magic Medicine Cabinet." It integrates such technologies like smart labels, face recognition, health monitoring devices,
Emily Cooley Lecture 2002: transfusion safety in the hospital
TLDR
This paper summarizes the 2002 Emily Cooley lecture, which called for a realignment of priorities in the field of transfusion medicine away from excess attention to the component and toward the interests of the patient.
Reports of 355 transfusion‐associated deaths: 1976 through 1985
TLDR
Management systems for transfusion facilities should be created or revised to include the specific identification of personnel eligible to administer transfusions to provide written guidance and appropriate training, and to implement measures that target safe transfusion practices.
