Why RFID is Critical

Why RFID is Critical

The importance of Positive Patient Identification in reducing medical errors is a harsh reality when considering that 195,000 deaths in the United States each year are attributed to preventable hospital errors (HealthGrades, 2004). Preventable adverse drug events affecting inpatients cost the U.S. about $2 billion annually.

Implementing PDC Healthcare's RFID Solutions will help ensure that the “Five Rights of Medication Safety” are achieved: Right Patient, Right Drug, Right Dose, Right Route, and Right Time. They also comply with the standards and regulations of top healthcare regulatory groups for tamperproof, non-transferable, positive patient ID including:

  • The Joint Commission Patient Safety Goals to improve patient safety.

  • The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA), which calls for uniform standards of data exchange and the protection and confidentiality of patient information.

  • The American Hospital Association (AHA) guidelines, calling for a tamperproof, non-transferable wristband that minimizes the risk of lost or transferred data.
