RFID in Healthcare Consortium Joins Trade Center

Market Center Management Company, the management company of leading trade centers and trade events around the world, announced today an agreement with the RFID in Healthcare Consortium (RHCC) for an integrated showroom in the Nashville Medical Trade Center. The custom space will showcase the use and adoption of RFID (radio frequency identification) and RTLS (real-time locating systems) technologies in the healthcare, assisted living and nursing home industries. It will be the only destination in the world integrating multiple companies' products, services and deliverables focusing on these important technologies in order to improve patient care, safety and operating efficiencies.
This one-of-a-kind technology complex, to be developed in three phases eventually encompassing 80,000 square feet, will include: The Intelligent Hospital, The Center of Excellence, and International Technology Pavilions that are destined to attract healthcare decision makers from around the world.
The Intelligent Hospital will closely replicate the actual environments of a hospital including registration, surgical services, emergency rooms, and critical care units -- a complete hospital deployment. In order to demonstrate "best in breed" technology capabilities surrounding the concept of an intelligent hospital, a variety of technologies will be seamlessly integrated to provide automated solutions such as "real-time" patient information delivered to smartphones or tablets from the operating room, intensive care unit, ambulatory/step-down and emergency department rooms, all coordinated through a Central War Room.
Displays will allow healthcare decision makers to see first-hand how information is collected through the use of data capture technologies from diverse patient care environments including remote locations. The Intelligent Hospital will showcase pioneering solutions that incorporate auto-ID/Bar code scanning, RFID, RTLS sensors and wireless technologies. This delivery methodology optimizes and enhances workflow, patient care and safety enabling dynamic monitoring and rapid response to critical issues. A version of this showcase has been a part of the HIMSS tradeshow for the past two years but inside the trade center a much more adaptive and expansive concept will be created.
In the second phase, The Intelligent Hospital will be complemented with the construction of an assisted/independent living home and nursing home room showcasing auto-ID, biometrics, NFC, RFID, RTLS, sensors, wireless and associated technologies in long-term care settings.
