    1. 1. RFID INHEALTHCARE By: Nazarenu Fernandes
    2. 2. WHY RFID INHEALTHCARE ???
    3. 3. ADVANTAGESRobustness:•Survive high Temperatures (Sterilization)•Survive Dirt, water, bloodUnobtrusiveness:•No connecting physical media (wireless)•Can be embedded behind or underneath surfacesEase of Use:•User-friendly•No explicit scanning required
    4. 4. ADVANTAGESValue Proposition:•Prevents patients from being misplaced•Ensure right tools for an operation•Reduce time spent to search equipment•Assist elderly people
    5. 5. ADVANTAGES OVER BAR-CODERFID offers some distinct benefits over BAR-CODE:• No “line of sight” requirements• More automated reading• Less labour required• Improved read rates ?• Larger data capacity• Ability to “write” information on a tag
    6. 6. HOSPITAL ENVIRONMENT USETRACKING PEOPLE SAFEGUARD ASSIST MEDICAL AND OBJECTS EQUIPMENT USE PERSONAL
    7. 7. TRACKING PEOPLE AND OBJECTS •Hospitals are busy environments •Equipments needs to be found quickly •Finding the right tool for the right patient is critical Analogous to SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENTSupply Doctors, Nurses, patients and equipmentManagement Rapidly locate the above in the hospital
    8. 8. SAFEGUARD EQUIPMENT USE•Use small RFID readers in hospital equipment•Examples: Use in Blood bags, IV drips, anesthesia lines•Ensures correct item connected to correct patient at correct time•Reduces treatment errors•Relieves stress from the nurses
    9. 9. SAFEGUARD EQUIPMENT USE APPLICATION Verify if corect drug is consumed
    10. 10. BLOOD TRANSFUSION - PROBLEMS Most Problem Arise due to Incorrect Blood transfused
    11. 11. BLOOD LABELINGBlood packet – Tagged and stored Verify Before Transfusion
    12. 12. MARKETSAlerted when he picks any of the unsuitable (medically) product
    13. 13. ASSIST MEDICAL PERSONAL•Show current state of an activity•Display information•Issue reminders•Notify other personnel•Asses students performance ( In medical colleges)
    14. 14. SKILL ASSESSMENT: IMPROVES •Objectivity •Efficiency •Reliability
    15. 15. HEALTH CARE SYSTEMPatient With RFID Transponder View And Update Web-Server Patient And Information DataBase RFID Wi-Fi Interface Interface
    16. 16. HOMEELDERCARE
    17. 17. HOME ELDERCARE•Medication•Exercise Use RFID•Eating properly•Hygiene DISTANT
    18. 18. HOME ELDERCARE•Permit Elders to enjoy high quality life•Reduce burden on care givers•Display current status to distant care giver•Provide real time “Okness Checking”•RFID can help with exercise, nutrition and social health
    19. 19. CHALLENGES: RADIO FREQ. ISSUES•Hospitals have variety of radiation emitting devices•Example: MRI units, X-Ray machines, Microwave sterilizers•Interference of the above with the said technology can be concern•To prevent EMI (electromagnetic interference ) ban cellphones, provide proper shielding to all devices concerned
    20. 20. CHALLENGES: PRIVACY AND SECURITY•Visibility of information exchange: Acknowledge that data isread, maintain history of read data•Consent: secure the data by using fingerprinting, retinal ID, digitalsignatures•Security levels: Use of critical data only visible to the doctor. Noaccess to patient
    21. 21. FUTURE AND CONCLUSION•Elimination of Technological hindrances•Larger memory capacities•Wide reading ranges•Faster processing
