RFID- Radio Frequency Identification is basically the electromagnetic energy which is transmitted for the use of storing and electronically carrying information with the use of RFID tags. In the case of wristbands, RFID tag is a small adhesive sticker which is attached to devices such as RFID wristbands. To make these devices receive and respond to radio frequencies, these tags have antennas. It is actually a wireless technology which helps you identify objects that have been incorporated with unique Radio Frequency Identification tags. In several industries, these tags are extremely useful for maintaining and managing material, information, etc. They assist in eliminating errors and preparing for stock-outs and their re-ordering, which is exceptionally significant in reducing labor costs.
These RFID tags are helpful in so many industries where tracking of goods, products, employees and patients is necessary. RFID tag is the best practical way to track any items in transit (in movement). In businesses where loading and re-loading of goods happens frequently and movement of items is between destinations far apart, such as between two countries, RFID is of great benefit to them.
In industries such as hospitals and health care industries, RFID wristbands are considered to be the most reliable, secure and convenient device to track patients, as well as manage and store information about them. These wristbands contain patient's identity and all the necessary information related to clients medical condition. RFID wristband is a simplified solution for proper care and identification of patients which does not compromise with the standards of management and control of the hospital. RFID wrist bands enhance and improve the safety and security of patients and are significantly effective in reducing administration efforts.
Critical information about patients is easily accessible to the medical staff and patients increasing efficiency. Existing clinical information systems can be easily integrated with RFID wristbands. These wristbands have very high memory capacities, capability to read information from longer distances and fast processing time. Highly secured systems of RFID wristbands prevent any unauthorized and unauthenticated access. Inventory of medical instruments, medicines, medical drugs and equipments may also be tracked with the help of RFID tags. Systematic tracking and recording of drugs and other samples can also be taken care of, with the help of RFID tag. The overall application of RFID wristbands and tags in hospitals and healthcare industries is extremely significant and it is definitely the most secure platform to manage patient data.
