Wireless Technologies for the Health Care Industry

In the health care sector, especially hospitals have advanced their systems with wireless technologies like RFID in recent years. The highest priority in such an environment is patient safety and satisfaction. Reducing medical costs and waiting times benefit the recovery process.

With automated asset management systems that track tagged items and gather information about the location and status of medical devices, smart inventory solutions that inform the staff that something is missing, expired, or about to run out, wireless technologies offer a broad range of possibilities for improving the day-to-day operations.

All articles in this section have been selected with care to not only provide you with information about certain projects but also to give you the opportunity to find the exact fit of supplier, product, or solution for your own project.

Safety and security in hospitals

Hygiene and sterilisation can be monitored and documented through RFID systems with tags that withstand high temperatures and liquids. Laundry carts, patient beds, surgery instruments – the tracking and labeling solutions these technologies offer allow for less manual labor hours in the areas of inventory and maintenance and free up valuable time for patient care.

Access control can be provided by RFID cards and gates. Barcodes can be used for serialised medication labels and damaged packages can be detected via RFID. With self-service solutions, patients can access their own medicine and laundry without needing staff assistance.

Medical engineering

In laboratories, automated systems can provide information about samples or equipment functionality. Sensors monitor data like temperature for sensitive materials like blood reserves or medication. With the introduction of wearable sensors that allow for external patient monitoring and send data like heart rate or body temperature to the hospital for long-term monitoring. They can also be used by patients themselves – by diabetics, for example, to be able to constantly monitor blood sugar levels.
