Tracking Management of Medical Records Based on RFID Technology
Enabling Advantages of RFID-based Whole-process Tracing Management of Medical Records
1. Improve work efficiency
Before the emergence of QR code and RFID technology, medical records administrators had to perform tedious manual registration when recovering, archiving, borrowing, and returning medical records. They also needed to read the tedious record of borrowing medical records during verification. There is no longer a need for manual operation, but it is also necessary to scan the barcode on the first page of the medical record one by one. Now RFID readers can read all the medical record identification information at one time, and as long as the medical records exist in the space where the reader is installed, no matter whether this medical record now belongs to any stage of circulation, the administrator can accurately query the specific medical records. Location, which shortens the time of manual inquiry, and "frees up" the staff from the tedious labor, which improves the efficiency of work.
2. Expansion of storage
After the use of RFID electronic tag technology, the tag can store megabytes of information, and the storage capacity is greatly increased compared to manual entry of information and two-dimensional code technology, which solves the problem of manual registration requiring a large amount of paper resources and greatly saves manpower and material resources. Cost; at the same time, it solves the problem of limited information stored by two-dimensional code scanning technology. The position of the RFID reader in the workflow office can be achieved by the disease manager, which can realize non-contact and large-scale collection of archive information.
3. Increase security
RFID electronic tags use RFID tag readers to repeatedly erase information that has been encrypted in a variety of ways. Reading information also requires a key to decrypt it. Therefore, this type of electronic tag information is highly secure and difficult to copy. And its identification work does not require manual intervention and can work in a variety of harsh environments, which also greatly improves its use safety. Medical record security is an important part of medical record management. The encryption function of RFID technology prevents the danger that the medical record tracking information may be tampered with.
4. Realize digital management
When an RFID tag is attached to a medical record, information such as the position and status of the medical record (whether it has been loaned out) can be displayed in the system in real time, which is convenient for accurately determining which of the medical records is in recovery, coding, quality control, filing, feedback, and lending. Process, and can directly judge the recovery time of the medical records, whether it is overdue, archiving time, and whether the archival records are overdue, so that the medical records can be circulated within a certain controllable range to ensure the accurate positioning of the medical records circulation and maintain the availability of medical records. With the introduction of high-tech technology, the management mode of traditional paper records has been changed, the work efficiency of traditional medical records management has been improved, and the work loopholes that traditional models may bring have been largely avoided. Digital management.
Problems in RFID Technology Application
1. High cost
At present, the widely used barcodes each cost between RMB 0.04-0.4, and most hospitals can print the barcode directly on the first page of the medical record, so the cost is not high. However, the cost of each RFID tag ranges from 2-4 yuan, and a large number of RFID readers and background computers or connection port software need to be purchased. Therefore, if RFID technology is widely used in medical record management in the future, it will need to rely on large-scale usage to reduce costs; and in addition to solving hardware costs, RFID technology also includes corresponding software system costs. These funds are difficult for individual medical records to implement.
2. The standards are not uniform
At present, the global standard of RFID technology has not been unified, and it is also one of the important reasons that it is difficult to use it uniformly in hospitals across the country, which has affected its development to a certain extent.
Summary: RFID technology has many advantages, but in actual use, there are still implementation obstacles such as high cost and unstandardized standards that need to be resolved, but it has incomparable advantages in other ways and is an inevitable trend of intelligent development. RFID technology enables the whole process of medical record tracking system not only to achieve the management and monitoring of various circulation links of the medical records, but also to accurately locate the medical records in the circulation process, through statistical calculation to calculate key data that can directly reflect the efficiency of work, and promoted The effective use of human resources has greatly improved the management level and efficiency of the hospital. The whole process of medical record tracking management based on RFID technology not only optimizes the work flow, reduces the intermediate links, improves the work efficiency, promotes the scientific, standardized and refined medical record management, but also plays a positive role in promoting the construction of digital hospitals.
