Jordan Hospital deploys RFID-powered oncology solution

It’s only been a few weeks since Jordan Hospital rolled out XECAN’s RFID Oncology Solution, but the Massachusetts-based healthcare provider is already considering deploying it in other parts of the hospital.

The successful rollout has allowed medical staff to spend more time with patients, since RFID has streamlined the registration process and offers a more inviting medical experience for cancer patients.

 The system is powered by XECAN, which has integrated the ThingMagic® Astra® UHF Reader into the solution, which significantly assists in the goal of eliminating treatment errors.

 The XECAN Oncology Solution leverages the Astra’s flexibility, ease-of-use and low cost to automate patient queuing, the opening of patient charts and treatment plans, and accessory verification for treatment devices. XECAN’s RFID plug-in solution is designed to eliminate patient identification and potential treatment errors by interfacing directly with Electronic Medical Record (EMR) software.

As part of the solution, each patient receives an RFID lanyard upon arrival. The RFID reader, which is concealed above the ceiling, automatically identifies the patient. Because of the extended read range of the Astra reader, patients need only pass within approximately 15 feet of any reader to be recognized.

Through the XECAN EMR integration, when the RFID system identifies the patient, they are placed in the daily schedule queue and their medical chart and treatment plan are immediately opened.

“Before the RFID system was in place, we would have to ask the patient to produce three forms of identification to properly match them with their treatment plans,” said Natalie Campbell, Department manager, Jordan Hospital. “Now, after an initial registration, the patient’s identification is verified automatically in one step. This gives us more time to talk to patients about things going on in their lives, helping them feel more at ease.

“We’re so pleased with the progress that we’re already thinking about expanding the RFID system to other parts of the hospital to potentially include staff and radiology accessories.”
