RFID technology has broad application prospects in medical information management and other areas. At present, the hospital's demand for medical information management mainly focuses on the following aspects: identification, sample identification, and case identification. Identification mainly includes patient identification, and doctor identification;Sample identification includes drug identification, medical device identification, laboratory product identification, etc.; Case identification includes medical condition identification, physical sign identification, etc.
The specific applications are divided into the following areas:
1、Patient information management
The patient's family history, past history, examinations, treatment records, drug allergies, and other electronic health records can provide help for doctors to develop treatment plans; doctors and nurses can achieve real-time monitoring information on patient vital signs, treatment, and chemotherapy, etc., to eliminate the use of wrong drugs, wrong injections and other phenomena, and automatically remind nurses to issue drugs, inspections, and other work.
2、Medical emergency management
In the case of more casualties, unable to obtain family contact, critical patients, and other special circumstances, with RFID technology, reliable and efficient information storage and inspection methods, quickly achieve patient identification, determine their names, ages, blood types, emergency contact numbers, past medical history, family members and other relevant details, then complete the admission registration procedures for emergency patients to fight for the treatment of valuable time.
Especially the installation of 3G video equipment in the ambulance, the patient is transported to the hospital on the way, and the emergency room can first understand the physiological condition of the patient, for the golden rescue time. If in a remote location, it can even take a remote medical imaging system for emergency rescue.
RFID technology is applied to the storage, use, and checking process of drugs to simplify manual and paper record processing, prevent stock-outs and facilitate drug recalls, avoid confusion between similar drug names, dosages, and dosage forms, strengthen drug management and ensure a timely and ready supply of drugs.
4、Blood Information Management.
The application of RFID technology to blood management can effectively avoid the disadvantages of the small capacity of bar codes, can achieve non-contact identification, reduce blood contamination, achieve multi-target identification, and improve the efficiency of data collection.
5、Drug formulation error prevention.
By adding error prevention mechanism in the process of drug collection and dispensing, the information management of drug preparation is realized in the process of prescription writing, dispensing, nursing drug administration, patient medication, drug efficacy tracking, drug inventory management, drug supplier purchase, storage period and storage environment conditions. Rfid tag confirms the type of preparation used by patients, record the flow of patient use and storage batch number, etc., to avoid medication negligence and patient medication safety.
6、Medical device and drug traceability.
By accurately recording the identity of items and patients, including the basic information of the product use link, the specific product information involved in the adverse event, the area where the same quality problem product may occur, the patient involved in the problem product, and the location of the problem product not yet used, we can trace back to the defective product and related patients, control all medical devices and drugs not put into use, and provide strong support for accident handling.
7、Information sharing interconnection.
Through the sharing and interconnection of medical information and records, a developed and integrated medical network is integrated and formed. On the one hand, authorized doctors can look up patients' medical records, case history, treatment measures, and insurance details. Patients can also choose or change doctors and hospitals on their own; on the other hand, it supports townships and district hospitals to seamlessly connect with the central hospital in terms of information, and to be able to attack real-time access to specialist advice, arrange referrals and receive training, etc.
8、Newborn anti-theft system.
Combine maternal and infant identification management, baby theft management, and channel authority of maternity and child hospitals of large general hospitals to prevent outsiders from entering and leaving at will. In particular, a baby has adorned an RFID wristband that is unique and makes the baby's information and the mother's information have a unique correspondence, to determine whether to hold the wrong baby, just compare the mother and baby "RFID wristband "information on it, which will avoid the occurrence of the wrong baby.
Through real-time monitoring and tracking of hospital medical equipment and patients, it indicates that patients send emergency distress signals, prevent patients from leaving privately, prevent valuable devices from being destroyed or stolen, and protect temperature-sensitive drugs and laboratory samples.
The implementation of RFID technology makes it easier for hospitals to manage materials, the use and procurement process of materials in hospitals has been further improved, preventing the use of expired materials, and effectively curbing the wrong links caused by human negligence. The efficient application of RFID technology in the medical industry promotes the development of the modern medical industry and provides an effective labor guarantee for the safety of the use, which has had a far-reaching impact on the harmonious development of the society.
