Combination of Barcoding and Smart RFID technology will save patients’ lives and improve outcomes

By: Winnipeg Health Innovation team

Our initiative proposes the architecting of an innovative Central Application Hub to receive data from RFID and Barcode readers, which will then serve to translate this data into HL7 messages to ensure maximum accessibility and full compatibility among healthcare units, clinical systems, and electronic health records. Smart RFID, conventional RFID, and Barcoding will all be supported by this network enabled platform, leading to improvements in operational efficiency, and patient quality of care.
