Abstract

Recent advances in Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) technology are leading to promising means for significant enhancement of safety, quality and value of health care. In this paper, we give an overview of the state-of-art research in applications of RFID in hospitals. We outline the challenges in designing RFID based systems for hospitals, and point out open problems and future research directions.
