ABSTRACT
The article reports that in 2007, research from the British consulting firm IDTechEX reveals that the healthcare sector represents 3% of the global active radio frequency identification market (RFID). The author states that in healthcare, the technology is used for tagging pharmaceuticals, but is increasingly being used in hospitals, where real-time location systems (RTLS) track assets, patients, and staff. A 2006 IDTechEx report forecasts that the use of RFID tags and services in the healthcare industry will grow from $90 million in 2007 to $2.1 billion in 2016. The article reveals that 50 hospitals per year are adopting RTLS.
