VisionID attend 23rd HISI Annual Conference and Scientific Symposium
The 23rd HISI Annual Conference and Scientific Symposium took place this past week on the 6th and 7th of November in Croke Park. The theme of this year’s conference was Sharing is Caring, and VisionID were among many companies who shared expertise regarding the healthcare industry.
The HISI conference offered attendees the opportunity to see some of the latest developments in eHealth around Ireland and further. VisionID were present for the two-day event offering information about a range of operational efficiency-enhancing services suitable to the healthcare sector.
Members of the VisionID team displayed some of the latest healthcare data capture technology, and were on site to answer any questions that attendees had on how this technology can work in their hospital. Andrew Daly, VisionID Sales Manager and Bronagh Barret, VisionID Account Manager displayed a collaborative stand with GS1 and ASD offering full end to end solutions, covering all software and hardware needs. Some of the healthcare-specific solutions included:
- Patient ID & Tracking.
- Specimen Tracking.
- Asset Management.
This year there was a huge interest in RFID asset tracking, with several attendees enquiring about how this might be implemented.
RFID Asset Tracking:
It is no secret that hospital equipment is expensive, and can often take time to replace. It is vital that hospital staff have access to supplies and assets when needed. Equipment can be tracked and monitored using RFID labels and antennas. Using RFID in hospitals will reduce time searching for misplaced equipment and allow more time to focus on the patient
Dave Brown from ASD was on the stand to provide information about most recent software developments and RFID solutions suitable for a healthcare environment. ASD, based in Dublin, specialise in the development and implementation of critical applications based on the latest RFID technology. Also, on the stand was Sean Dennison from GS1, GS1 is a leading global organisation dedicated to the design and implementation of global standards and solutions to improve the efficiency and visibility of supply and demand chains globally and across sectors. It is therefore worth mentioning that ASD are indeed GS1 certified. Also, at the VisionID stand was Chris Foice from Zebra Technologies, demonstrating products such as the ZQ610 Healthcare Mobile Printer and the TC51 Touch Computer Series.
VisionID look forward the 24th HISI Annual Conference and Scientific Symposium, and wish the event year on success.
