Sanraku Hospital, Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center Added to RFID in Health Care 2013 Agenda

NEW YORK, Sept. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- RFID Journal announced today that representatives from Tokyo's Sanraku Hospital and North Carolina's Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center have been added to the agenda for RFID in Health Care (, the premier industry event focused on the use of radio frequency identification technology within the health-care sector. The conference and exhibition will be held on Dec. 4, 2013, at the Georgetown University Hotel & Conference Center, located in Washington, D.C.

RFID in Health Care will feature leading hospital executives explaining how they use RFID to increase asset-utilization rates, reduce expenses and improve patient outcomes, and will provide a unique learning experience for health-care executives. Early adopters will share the results of real-world deployments, and answer questions regarding the benefits they have achieved thanks to RFID.

Among the confirmed speakers are Akira Nakamura, Sanraku Hospital's general manager, and Dr. Ryuhei Setoyama, the medical facility's honorary director. Nakamura and Setoyama will share how the hospital has implemented an intelligent nursing information system with bar-code and RFID capabilities. This solution has helped the facility improve patient safety, by providing real-time medication confirmation. At the same time, the system utilizes a single smart terminal platform to automate routine work, thereby improving nurses' work efficiency. Attendees will learn how the technology's use will be expanded during the next phase, to include managing medical equipment.

During another session, Stuart Grogan, Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center's radiology equipment manager, will discuss how RFID has improved efficiency and reduced costs at his hospital. The solution--consisting of passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID tags sewn into radiology vests, as well as a handheld reader and software to monitor each vest's location--was developed by the hospital's management to improve efficiency related to tracking the locations and inspection statuses of more than 850 vests. Attendees will hear how the facility, since the solution's installation, has saved considerable time and lowered labor costs.

"These are two great case studies that will enable attendees to hear how RFID technologies are benefiting hospitals and clinics today," said Mark Roberti, RFID Journal's founder and editor. "Health-care industry professionals looking to reduce costs and improve patient outcomes should attend the event and listen to these and other speakers."

RFID in Health Care will combine thought-provoking presentations, expert panelists and an exhibit area showcasing the latest RFID solutions for the health-care industry. What's more, guests will have the opportunity to meet the leading technology companies and view their latest solutions. This conference is designed for executives at hospitals or clinics considering the implementation of RFID technology within their facilities.
