1 RFID in Healthcare Healthcare versus Biochemical Industries Where is the infusion pump? Where is patient Brown? Has Mrs. Jones already left the department? I cannot find the device that needs maintenance! How many pieces of equipment have been used? Where is the patient dossier? Can this blood be used for this patient? How many stretchers are there in ER? Who is now in area K? Where is sample no. 134? Can I enter this area? How long did Mr. White remain in compound A? How many people are evacuated from zone E? Who was in zone T on that specific day? 2007 Geodan - All rights reserved Geodan Mobile Solutions B.V. 1

2 Location Matters 2007 Geodan - All rights reserved 3 Context of the project Blood products Patients and OR personnel Disposables 2007 Geodan - All rights reserved Geodan Mobile Solutions B.V. 2

3 Equipment tracking Issues Movida proposition 20-20% of equipment is lost, misplaced, stolen Staff wastes time looking for equipment. Valuable equipment is not available when needed Inventory is larger than necessary Maintenance is hampered by unknown location. Locate every piece of equipment in real-time, detect misplacement Position is known immediately, availability is immediate Reduce inventory to the optimal level thanks to complete asset visibility Locate every device that needs maintenance, proactive alerts 2007 Geodan - All rights reserved 5 Blood Transfusion Chain Issues Movida proposition Difficult to fulfil the EC directive for traceability of blood products Quality audit, in particular temperature, is hard to implement Bed side testing not 100% waterproof Paper based intra-hospital registration is not 100% waterproof Multiple systems containing duplicate, incomplete information Actual location and status of product in the supply chain to fulfil EC guidelines Continued monitoring and realtime alerting for quality protection Blood-patient automatic control and association verification Automatic registration of all history and quality of the blood product One single source for quality information of the blood product 2007 Geodan - All rights reserved Geodan Mobile Solutions B.V. 3

4 Patient and staff logistics Issues Existing information systems do not provide the information needed for optimizing patient flows. Starting times, leaving times etc. are not registered accurately. Identification of individual patients is not always accurate. Monitoring of contamination risk not sufficient / unknown. Rapid location of staff in case of need is not feasible. Movida proposition Accurate registration of location and time that provide full visibility of patient flows. Accurate and automatic registration, which reduces errors and administrative burden. Exact identification of the right patient. Precise location and flows detection to identify key variables for risk assessment Real-time location of staff in case of need Geodan - All rights reserved 7 Technology components Advise and design services Assess work processes and the added value of pervasive computing.
