Module 3 Lyda, Katlyn Technology that will Propel: RFID Technology (Yao, Chu, Li, 2011) by Mind Map: Module 3 Lyda, Katlyn Technology that will Propel: RFID Technology (Yao, Chu, Li, 2011)

1. Ensure medication matches patient.

2. What is RFID Technology?

2.1. RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification (Yao, Chu, Li, 2011)

2.2. Small "chips" are used to track location and movement. (Yao, Chu, Li, 2011)

3. Relevancy to Healthcare

3.1. How can RFID technology help?

3.1.1. RFID allows for tracking of patients and providers. (Yao, Chu, Li, 2011)

3.1.1.1. Keeping at risk patients safe: newborns, dementia patients, etc. (Yao, Chu, Li, 2011)

3.1.1.2. Increases workplace efficiency. (Yao, Chu, Li, 2011)

3.1.2. Drug administration can be monitored using this technology. (Yao, Chu, Li, 2011)

3.1.2.1. Correct, prescribed dose. (Yao, Chu, Li, 2011)

3.1.3. Equipment and materials are able to be located and used more efficiently. (Yao, Chu, Li, 2011)

3.1.3.1. Cost reduction due to lower rates of mistakes, lost or stolen equipment, and increased efficiency. (Yao, Chu, Li, 2011)

4. Ethical and Legal

4.1. Legal

4.1.1. Data transmitted via RFID is not fully protected. (Yao, Chu, Li, 2011)

4.1.2. Private information cannot yet be transmitted via RFID. (Yao, Chu, Li, 2011)

4.1.3. Further investment into security of RFID transmitted information is key to widespread implementation. (Yao, Chu, Li, 2011)

4.2. Ethical

4.2.1. Protected information transmitted via RFID can prevent life altering mistakes, but is disastrous if misused. (Yao, Chu, Li, 2011)

4.2.2. Surveillance and invasion of privacy concerns sometime prevent use of RFID tagging. (Yao, Chu, Li, 2011)

5. Model/ Framework

5.1. Evidence Based Practice and Research

5.1.1. Reviews data gathered from existing case studies and current use. (Yao, Chu, Li, 2011)

5.1.2. Process of Implementation (Knowledge Translation) (Yao, Chu, Li, 2011)

5.1.3. Research advancement for RFID in Healthcare has not advanced at the same pace as it's use in other fields. (Yao, Chu, Li, 2011)
