Radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology is being used increasingly for its efficiency and safety. The goal of this study is to evaluate the RFID technology within a hospital information system (HIS) for better workflow management in a health promotion center. We developed an RFID (433 mHz) real-time tracking system to monitor patients at the room level. Then we implemented an automatic workflow management by integrating RFID system with HIS. If a patient has finished one examination… CONTINUE READING
