Author:

•Medical Physics and Clinical Engineering (MPCE) manage over 8,000 assets of Medical Device Technology (MDT) at Tallaght University Hospital (TUH).
•MPCE are limited in their ability to accurately track all MDT as they are often small, light and mobile.
•Research into Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology showed that it can improve asset management in a healthcare setting.
•Uptake of this technology has been slow in healthcare due large capital costs, undesirable ROI, technical faults and staff training difficulties.
Can a simple, innovative and cost effective RFID system be designed to play a vital role in the management of MDT?
