REAL-TIME RFID-ENABLED HEALTHCARE-ASSOCIATED MONITORING SYSTEM

Belal Chowdhury, Xiaozhe Wang, Nasreen Sultana

Abstract

In healthcare context, the use of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology has been employed to reduce health care costs and to facilitate the automatic streamlining of healthcare-associated infectious disease outbreak detection. RFID is playing an important role in monitoring processes in health facilities such as hospitals, nursing homes, special accommodation facilities and rehabilitation hospital. In this paper, we present a design of healthcare system using a real-time RFID-enabled application, called “Healthcare-associated Infectious Outbreak Detection and Monitoring System (HIODMS)”.
