8:45 AM OPENING REMARKS Speaker: Mark Roberti, Founder and Editor, RFID Journal 9:00 AM IMPROVING PRODUCTIVITY WITH RTLS AT ALBERT EINSTEIN MEDICAL CENTER Albert Einstein Medical Center (AEMC) is using an automatic tracking system to improve patient ow, reduce length of stay and patient walkouts, and decrease emergency department (ED) overcrowding, in order to increase the satisfaction of both patients and caregivers. AEMC implemented automatic tracking within its ED in 2003, and is utilizing the system to track the real-time location and care status of all patients, identify the location of medical equipment, streamline the admissions process, and analyze and report on department performance. Hear how the department has achieved quantiable improvements in operating performance, resulting in $14.8 million in revenue due to reductions in left-withouttreatment (LWOT) patients and diversions, as well as improved door-to-disposition times. Speaker: Carl R. Chudnofsky, M.D., Chairman, Department of Emergency Medicine, Albert Einstein Medical Center 9:45 AM MISSION HOSPITAL IMPROVES EQUIPMENT UTILITY RATE AND SAVES $150,000 Mission Hospital, a 552-bed facility with two campuses in Mission Viejo and Laguna Beach, Calif., is employing a hybrid infrared (IR) and RFID system to track the location, cleaning and maintenance of its moveable medical equipment. Following the systems installation, the equipment utility rate for tagged items rose by 7 percent. The rate of lost or stolen devices dropped from 13.8 percent to zero, resulting in an annual savings of $150,000 to $200,000 worth of equipment that had been lost each year prior to the system being installed. The rm deployed RFID access points throughout the facility, providing 100 percent coverage in the buildings public sections, and attached tags to mobile assets of high value. In this session, learn how Mission Hospital is using the system to better manage its moveable medical equipment, perform periodic maintenance of its assets more efciently, assure Joint Commission compliance and reduce equipment loss. Speaker: Michael Kohler, Director of Material Management, Mission Hospital Mission Viejo and Laguna Beach 10:30 AM NETWORKING BREAK 11:00 AM INCREASING EFFICIENCIES BY USING RFID TO TRACK ASSETS Several years ago, Tallahassee Memorial HeathCare began employing radio frequency identication as a means of obtaining accurate real-time visibility regarding patients, staff members and assets. Hear how the company employs RFID asset tags to provide increased supply chain efciency, resulting in capital purchase savings and lowered rental costs. The presenter will also discuss how real-time location system (RTLS) technology has reduced the rms annual operating costs, including equipment inventory, in terms of process improvement. Speaker: Jay Adams, IT Enterprise Architect, Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare

11:45 AM RFID-ENABLED JOURNALS HELP PATIENTS TRACK AND MANAGE CHRONIC DISEASES AT MERIDIAN HEALTH Meridian Health, which operates ve New Jersey hospitals and a home-care service, has developed electronic health journals for patients to answer key questions regarding symptoms of their condition, such as adult asthma, pain, COPD and depression, as well as an RFID-enabled journal to improve medication management, and to offer greater independence and safety to patients with chronic diseases. The journals latest application targets poor sleep healtha pervasive problem, with 25 percent of U.S. adults reporting insufcient sleep or rest at least 15 out of every 30 days. Learn how the rms newest application enables patients to monitor their sleeping habits during the night, in the comfort of their own home. This smart card, worn during the night, tracks overall activity levels associated with sleep and combines that knowledge with common daily symptoms into a core sleep assessment, providing a method for monitoring the impact of lifestyle changes on sleep patterns. Speaker: Sandra Elliott, Director of Consumer Technology and Service Development, Meridian Health 12:30 PM LUNCH BREAK 2:00 PM RFID FOR IMPROVED RESULTS Learn how Tufts Medical Center uses passive RFID to track high-value products across four specialty departments and its materials-management department. The solution has provided the the hospital with real-time visibility, enabling optimized inventory levels, sizable nancial benets and improved inter-departmental collaboration around supply chain improvements. Moderator: Diane Hubisz, Director of Cardiovascular Services, CardioVascular Center, Tufts Medical Center 2:45 PM VEIN-TO-VEIN IMPLEMENTATION OF HF RFID IN BLOOD COLLECTION THROUGH TRANSFUSION ISO 18000-3m1 13.56 MHz RFID tags have been accepted by the International Society for Blood Transfusion and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as data carriers to augment ISBT128 bar-code data on blood products. This is the rst FDA-permitted implementation of RFID in all phases of blood-banking. In this session, learn about RFID technology and equipment selection, as well as FDA-required RF safety testing, integration with the blood enterprise-computing system, RFID tag performance and tag survivability issues. The presenter will also discuss the benets and deployment issues at the BloodCenter of Wisconsin and the University of Iowa Health Center. Speaker: Clive P. Hohberger, Ph.D., RFID Systems Architect, BloodCenter of Wisconsin 3:30 PM NETWORKING BREAK

AGENDA
SEPT.12, 2011
4:00 PM SHARP MEMORIAL HOSPITAL TESTS RFID-ENABLED DRUG-MANAGEMENT SYSTEM Sharp Memorial Hospital is currently conducting a pilot project using RFID-enabled drug-dispensing cabinets in conjunction with standard EPC Gen 2 tags. The 368-bed facility is utilizing the system to manage the inventory levels, lot numbers and expiration dates of slow-moving, high-cost pharmaceuticals that hospitals seldom administer, but that are vital to have ready nonetheless. These medications-such as rabies vaccines, blood factors and snakebite antivenom-not only are expensive, but also sometimes have a short shelf life. Learn how the RFID system is enabling the staff to know where the drugs are located, as well as the amount of each product available in stock at all times, so that it can reduce the quantity of items that are never administered due to exceeding their expiration date. Speaker: John Johnson, Director of Pharmacy, Sharp Memorial Hospital 4:45 PM BEYOND ASSET TRACKING: HOW WAKE FOREST BAPTIST MEDICAL CENTER LEVERAGED AN EXISTING REAL-TIME LOCATION SYSTEM Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center (WFBMC) is employing a real-time location system (RTLS) to track the locations of IV poles, pumps and other items as they are moved around the 4-million-square-foot campus. In August 2010, the hospital began using its existing RTLS to track how long blood coolers remained outside its blood bank. By utilizing the system for its 35 coolers, the facility has been able to ensure that the coolers are not lost, and that staff members receive updates when the products are scheduled to be returned to the blood bank, in order to ensure that it meets the storage-temperature requirements of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Each cooler has an RFID tag encoded with a unique ID number linked to the cooler in the RTLS. As the coolers move around the facility, their locations are tracked using the hospital's existing RFID readers and infrared emitters. Hear about how the RFID-enabled blood-bank-management system has been so successful that the hospital has now applied for a patent, and how it plans to market the solution to other medical facilities. Speaker: Ronald Noel, Receiving Manager, Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center 5:30 PM CLOSING REMARKS Speaker: Mark Roberti, Founder and Editor, RFID Journal 5:35 PM CONFERENCE CONCLUDES
