Abstract Share this page

The major problem at emergency room (ER) is access to specialist when they are elsewhere in the hospital. The nurse pages the doctor about the emergency. The specialists do not respond because they are busy with other patients in other place or something else. Radio Frequency Identification [RFID] can help us to track doctors, nurses or patients to render better health services to cure patients. The aim of this project was first, to identify and discuss the most advantages and disadvantages of the RFID in hospitals, second, to identify and discuss some experience in the entire world. This study reviewed the literature on the RFID applications in healthcare. The literature search was conducted with the help of library, data bank, and also searches engines available at Google, and conference proceedings. For our searches, we employed the following keywords and their combinations: RFID, healthcare, hospital, Medical Errors, Emergency Room, and Emergency Medicine in the searching areas of title, keyword or abstract. Technical reports were excluded since we focused on research papers. More than 53 articles were collected and assessed 26 of them were selected based on their relevancy. It can be used to guide future research in this field. Care providers can monitor their patient, products, and medical staff. To increase quality of care and decrease waiting time, care providers should use RFID technology to track and control patients, professional, and medical products.
