In RFID Medical management, every patient will wear a special RFID wristband, and each nurse will carry a RFID handheld reader, which automatically collects and stores all patient information every day. The data like medical advice, patient condition are stored in the RFID wristband chip, and the data is interconnected with the server through the reader. This effectively realize the infomration management of the ward, improves the overall work efficiency, and reduces various Human errors.
The patient needs to go through three steps from the doctor to the treatment: the doctor checks the patient and draws a preliminary diagnosis after issuing the medical order, the nurse will copy the medical order to the infusion or treatment card and prepares to execute, and the nurse implements the treatment plan. Each of these steps is crucial. There must be no negligence, otherwise it will lead to medical errors. Medical order information errors can be reflected in the hospital information system, and most of these errors can be discovered and corrected before the nurse executes the medical order.
The nurse confirms the patient's identity based on the RFID wristband, and meanwhile, confirms the medicine while executing the medical order. The PDA handheld reader enters information like who take the medical order, when the medical order is executed, and the patient's sign data, etc., into the system. At the same time, RFID access control equipment will be installed in the ward, it will send the information of patients enter and leave the ward to the nurse station, which is convenient for management.
RFID technology realizes the wireless nursing information system, the correct identification of the patient's identity and medicine, and the closed-loop execution of the medical order, which effectively prevents and avoids the occurrence of medical errors. Solve the wireless network security in the hospital and the protection of RFID's information security and patient privacy data.
RFID medical mobile care system platform process
1.Daily Medical Order Processing
The nurses in each ward download the medical orders of all patients in the system to the database server of the wristband ward service system after the doctor's rounds every morning. The RFID reader downloads the medical order of the day from ward service system. After arriving at the ward, the nurse reads the patient's wristbands one by one to check the patient ID number, and writes the doctor's order of the day into the wristband worn by the patient. When writing the doctor's order, the nurse needs to log in first and log out after completing the doctor's order. When reading the patient ID number, the RFID handheld reader will automatically check the medical order according to the time to ensure the correctness of the written medical order. Doctors on duty can directly read the wristband through the reader to inquire about the medical order of a certain patient if necessary. The nurse on duty can also get to know the basic condition and medical order of a patient at any time and according to the needs of the patient's family or subordinates.
2. Drug distribution management
The nurse reads the medical order data of the patient's wristband through the handheld RFID reader, checks the patient's medication on the day, and distributes the correct medication to the patient. The nurse needs to log in before distributing the medicine and log out after the medicine is dispensed.
The nurse reads the doctor's order data stored in the patient's wristband through the reader, and keeps informed of the patient's medication and drug distribution.
4.Mobile patient treatment
When a patient is doing a test or examination in another department inside the hospital (outside the ward), the department can quickly and accurately check and determine the test and examination items required by the patient based on the data in the RFID wristband.
After setting the regular reminder for medicine distribution or nurse check, the RFID hand-held reader will start an alarm prompt at a fixed time to remind the nurse to issue or change the medicine.
6. First Aid Treatment
When the patient is in an emergency, it can read the patient's RFID wristband through the handheld reader to understand the patient's basic condition in time and immediately start emergency treatment
7.Life characteristics management
After checking the patient's basic life characteristics on a daily basis, the patient's basic life characteristics can be recorded after matching the patient ID with a handheld reader. It is convenient to check the patient's basic life characteristics at any time. After uploading to the database of the wristband ward service system, it can be browsed comprehensively. The latest basic life characteristics can be written into the patient's wristband for easy reference.
With the development of wireless network technology and radio frequency identification technology (RFID), it can effectively prevent and avoid the occurrence of medical errors with combination of two technologies. With the support of wireless network technology and RFID technology, the real-time inspection and confirmation of each step in the execution of medical orders can be achieved, and the unique identification of patient identity, drugs, blood bags, etc. can be completed, which guarantees the patient Safety, improving medical quality and reducing medical errors .
