    • 1. Using RFID Technology to Improve the Efficiency and Effectiveness of Healthcare Delivery Michael Dereszynski, Microsoft Henry Tenarvitz, Versus Administration & Process Improvement Track
    • 2. Uncovering the Benefits of Microsoft RFID Infrastructure for Healthcare Michael Dereszynski Senior Consultant Healthcare and Life Science
    • 3. What is RFID ?
      • Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a method of remotely storing and retrieving data using devices called RFID tags and RFID Readers
      • RFID is an enabling technology with the potential to simplify processes
        • Tags can be read in bulk
        • Tags can be read without line of sight restrictions
        • Data can be stored and retrieved from the tag automatically with a Reader
        • Tags can be write once read many (WORM) or rewritable
        • Other sensors can be combined with RFID
    • 4. General Business Benefits
      • Improved Operational Efficiency
        • Shipping/Receiving, warehouse management
      • Total Supply Chain Visibility
        • Inventory movement from warehouse to final destination
      • Inventory Control
        • Shrinkage management
      • Security
        • Asset tracking
    • 5. Business Benefits (Healthcare Specific)
      • Providers
        • Asset management
        • Patient Tracking (RFID bands)
      • Pharmaceutical
        • Manufacturing – logistics benefits
        • Distribution – electronic pedigree
    • 6. Examples (Providers)
      • Surgichip used in hospital operating rooms
      • An RFID asset tracking system enables the staff to locate a piece of tagged equipment by using a PC.
      • Tagged surgical instruments are monitored for location and their maintenance schedule.
      • Staff and patients be located easily due to the tagged bracelets that they wear.
    • 7. Examples (Pharmaceutical)
      • Starting in December 2005, Pfizer has started affixing RFID tags to all U.S. shipments of Viagra in order to counter fake pills.
      • Sensitech has introduced an RFID-enabled device, ColdStream Plant to Shelf (PTS), which monitors container temperature.
