“On behalf of HIMSS, the nation’s largest professional association dedicated to the cause of improving healthcare through the optimal use of health information technology, I welcome you to the RFID and RTLS Showcase. HIMSS is very excited to be co-hosting this demonstration pavilion with the RFID in Healthcare Consortium organization, who shares our commitment to improving health care delivery and quality.

The power and potential of RFID and RTLS is boundless. I encourage you to take the time to explore deeply all that this showcase has to offer from educational presentations to the demonstration hospital room that offers an exciting living illustration of the interoperability of RFID and RTLS with medical and mobile devices – all delivering real time patient data to clinicians.

I also encourage you to participate in the many other educational sessions focused on these technologies that are occurring throughout this week at HIMSS11, and to visit our website (www.himss.org) for the latest news and information on new innovations and applications of RFID and RTLS in healthcare.”
