RFID-based Electronic Nursing Management System
To enhance the efficiency and quality of nursing services, Pok Oi Hospital Tuen Mun Nursing Home collaborates with PolyU to develop an integrated system named“RFID-based Electronic Nursing Management System (RF-ENMS)”. This system uses Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) / Near Field Communication (NFC) technologies together with tablet PC to provide real-time nursing care information for the staff. RF-ENMS helps to support the heavy duties of nursing staff on the daily operation, nursing care and reduce the repetitive and unnecessary paper works. RF-ENMS provides personalized nursing service plan of individual elderly, service checklist, service completion registration, alert and reporting features.
RFID-based Drug Management System (DMS)
A number of recent cases involving medication errors raise considerable public concern and press attention. Our researchers realized the important of drug safety and observed that most mistakes occurred during management processes. Therefore, the RFID-based Drug Management System (DMS) is proposed to modify clinic operations by tracking drugs throughout the replenishing and dispensing processes. It is used to enhance drug safety and patient safety, as well as to improve efficiency and effectiveness of drug management.We are honored to receive the Silver Award for the Hong Kong RFID Awards U-21 RFID Awards 2009 (Undergraduate Stream). Feedback from client “Humphrey and Partners Medical Services Limited”: “Healthcare management is a complex issue, fortunately the RFID-enabled solution helps us support our daily operations. From now on we can serve our patients ever better, whom we have promised to exercise our greatest care already.”
