Topic: RFID in Healthcare
Speaker: Dr Lim Soh Min, Director / Chief Marketing Officer, Cadi Scientific Pte Ltd
One of the key challenges in the future of healthcare is to deal with an aging population. A worldwide phenomenon, the aging population is going to result in a higher patient to nurse ratio. Technology will probably never be able to replace a doctor’s judgment or a nurse’s touch, but it can help tip the balance by improving workflow and making manual and routine tasks more efficient. This talk will highlight some success stories on how wireless technology has been used in the hospitals to improve operational efficiency, enhance patient experience, improve data visibility and reduce cross infections.
