Radio frequency identification (RFID) technology has been implemented in a wide variety of industries. Health care is no exception. This article explores implementations and limitations of RFID in several health care domains: authentication, medication safety, patient tracking, and blood transfusion medicine. Each domain has seen increasing utilization of unique applications of RFID technology. Given the importance of protecting patient and data privacy, potential privacy and security concerns… 
RFID Applications and Adoptions in Healthcare: A Review on Patient Safety
RFID Applications for Patient Safety in the Healthcare Sector
TLDR
The findings suggest that there has been a surge in IoT applications in HC research in the last two years concerning pandemic control, but the high costs of adoption and implementation, security and privacy concerns, and human safety risks are among the main barriers to adopting IoT in HC.
Enhancing Patient Safety
TLDR
The authors explore the potentials & challenges of RFID adoptions in HC, with a focus on patient safety, suggesting that high costs of adoption, security & privacy concerns and human safety risks are the main barriers for adoption.
RFID Continuance Usage Intention in Health Care Industry
TLDR
Evaluating the acceptance continuance of RFID among health care professionals through technology continuance theory (TCT) showed that the TCT model provided not only a thorough understanding of the continuance behavior of health Care professionals toward RFID but also the attitudes, satisfaction, and perceived usefulness of professionals toward it.
Secure Lightweight IoT Integrated RFID Mobile Healthcare System
TLDR
This IoT-based RFID healthcare monitoring system provides acquisition of physiological information of elderly people and patients in hospital and is aiming to secure patient’s health recordings using hyper elliptic curve- (HEC-) based signcryption algorithm while allowing the doctor to access patient health information.
Reverse Engineering and Security Evaluation of Commercial Tags for RFID-Based IoT Applications
TLDR
It is shown that the methodology proposed is useful for auditing security and reverse engineering RFID communications in IoT applications, and it must be noted that, although this paper is aimed at fostering RFid communications security in IoT Applications, the methodology can be applied to any RFID communication protocol.

TLDR
This paper proposes an anonymous mutual authentication scheme, which achieves anonymity, unlinkability, untraceability, and location privacy for RFID tags, and can be implemented in healthcare RFID systems because it employs lightweight security operations.
Security Enhanced RFID Authentication Protocols for Healthcare Environment
TLDR
This paper proposes a security enhanced RFID authentication protocol using the technique of indistinguishability obfuscation, which prevents the leakage of sensitive data from the backend server and extends the protocol to fit for the scenario of cloud environment where the tags’ information is stored in the cloud server.
Determinants of RFID Adoption in Malaysia’s Healthcare Industry: Occupational Level as a Moderator
TLDR
Investigation of RFID adoption in Malaysia's healthcare industry shows that perceived ease of use and usefulness, government policy, top management support, and security and privacy concerns have an effect on the intent to adopt RFID in hospitals.
