Title: Application of RFID Technology in Patient ManagementSystemAbstract:Hospitals and other medical service facilities are trying to minimize the time it takesto serve a patient in an efficient manner. Typically, the service time involvesidentifying the patient, type of service required, history of treatment and accessingpersonal information. The current methodology consumes excessive time toperform these tasks. In addition, human error can make the procedure even longer.Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology can play a key role to retrievepatient data and track patients within the medical facility. A basic RFID systemconsists of a tag, antenna and a reader. RFID tag is a low power communicationdevice which is capable of storing information that can be attached to the patientID card. Using this RFID methodology it is possible to access patient informationand movement within the medical facility once registered. This paper details howa pilot model was developed to retrieve patient information quickly and track theindividual from registration onwards. A database was designed to facilitate datagathering and organizing them to be retrieved quickly. An output patient profilewill be presented.
