Thailand’s Samitivej Sukhumvit Hospital enhances infant safety by using RFID

Cadi Scientific newsletter, news article (summary), December 2013:

Samitivej Sukhumvit Hospital, a leading healthcare facility in Bangkok, has deployed an RFID system to further enhance infant safety and to improve patient experience. The new system, developed by a Singapore Company, uses active RFID tags to automate the process of matching mothers and infants throughout their stay in the hospital. It also provides automated wireless location tracking and pairing verification; on-demand pairing verification is also available at the push of a button. The system provides clear audio and visual alerts at the nurses’ workstations if any mismatch or unauthorized movement is detected, giving better security for the newborns and peace of mind for parents and caregivers.
