Evaluation of Automatic Identification Technologies (Auto-ID) to be Implemented in the Health Care Sector

Mike Krey

Abstract

The tasks and objectives of automatic identification (Auto-ID) are to provide information on goods and products. It has already been established for years in the areas of logistics and trading and can no longer be ignored by the German health care sector [3, 9]. Some German hospitals have already discovered the capabilities of Auto-ID. Improvements in quality, safety and reductions in risk, cost and time are aspects and areas where improvements are achievable. Privacy protection, legal restraints, and the personal rights of pa- tients and staff members are just a few aspects which make the heath care sec- tor a sensible field for the implementation of Auto-ID [4]. Auto-ID in this con- text contains the different technologies, methods and products for the registra- tion, provision and storage of relevant data [6] With the help of a quantifiable and science-based evaluation, an answer is sought as to which Auto-ID has the highest capability to be implemented in health care business.
