Study: Requirements and options for actions in RFID in healthcare

1 July 2009

The study on the requirements and options for actions in RFID applications in healthcare delivery in Europe. (02-2008/07-2009)

It set out to identify the drivers, obstacles and critical uncertainties surrounding the current and future deployment of this and similar technologies. RFID is thought to have high potential for increasing efficiency, quality of healthcare, and most importantly: patient safety. Therefore the Commission strives to develop policies to maximise this potential and limit possible risk, where possible.
The study on the requirements and options for RFID application in healthcare was completed in 2009.
