Most Innovative Use of RFID: BP International
Special Achievement: Dr. Bill Hardgrave
Best in Show: Omni-ID
RFID Green Award: Hewlett-Packard Brazil
Best RFID Thesis: Cecilia Occhiuzzi

A panel of independent judges chose this year’s winners. In each category, at least five judges awarded points based on criteria established by RFID Journal. The main criteria for awards given to end users were whether the deployment broke new ground, as well as the benefits it delivered to a company or organization. The judges chose 10 finalists for the Best in Show award, and RFID Journal’s editors picked the winner from those 10.

Cisco Systems was chosen for an RFID solution allowing it to track IT assets across all of its facilities worldwide, and to achieve real-time visibility into those items’ locations. Intel won for a system of linking passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) tags to Intel processors, thereby enabling new features and capabilities for computers, tablets and other electronic devices.

BP International was selected for an RFID-based control-of-work solution that makes refinery “isolation” work safer and more efficient, and that enables the company to maintain accurate records, updated in near-real time. HP Brazil won for an RFID-enabled system to track the recycling of its printers.

Bill Hardgrave, the dean of Auburn University’s College of Business, and the founder of the University of Arkansas’ RFID Research Center, was honored for his pioneering research on the real-world impact that radio frequency identification can have on retailing. Omni-ID won this year’s Best in Show award for its Visual Tag System, which includes RFID tags with display screens for showing bar codes, images and text, enabling a company to provide workers with real-time information and instructions regarding moving assets.

In addition, RFID Journal introduced a new award this year, to recognize students performing outstanding work in the academic field. Cecilia Occhiuzzi, of the University of Roma Tor Vergata, was selected for her thesis, “Wearable and Implantable RFID Technology for Pervasive Healthcare: Human Identification and Sensing”

“This is the sixth year we have been giving out awards, and each time, the submissions get better and better,” said Mark Roberti, RFID Journal’s founder and editor. “This year, we had several enterprise-wide deployments in each end-user category, demonstrating that RFID technology has reached a level of maturity at which it can be used in core business applications.”

Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) February 22, 2012

Empowering and engaging families in the process of care is a top priority for Nemours Childrens Hospital.

Technologies Focused On Patient-Centered Care – As partners in care delivery, patient families will have secure and confidential access to clinical information wherever they may be, enhancing communication and follow-up with patients prior to coming to the hospital and after discharge through the use of personal health records systems.

For several years Nemours had been investigation how to better engage patients and families in the process of care. Recognizing the evolving needs and technological capabilities of patients and their families, a consumer health platform to support their corporate strategy was being sought. The following key requirements were developed through extensive family interviews: efficient and effective communication between families of patients and clinicians; ability to track key parameters for chronic and complex patients; and the ability to view lab results and appointments. Clarity Health Journal is the first product to embody these needs.

The 2011 Cluster Grant award for Obesity Research Cluster (ORC) calls for implementation of Clarity Health Journal. Nemours seeks to better understand the utility and effectiveness of decision support messages delivered directly to the patient. Clarity Health Journal delivers a wide array of features, otherwise not available to patients at Nemours. It will also integrate with the current portal known as MyNemours.

Clarity Health Journal was chosen because the application delivers a comprehensive web 2.0 experience to patients including social networking and the ability to deliver messages via mobile devices. The project will engage families dealing with Child Obesity in order to better understand the use of technology to improve patient outcomes by empowering families.

The Clarity Health Journal designed as a family centric health application allows for information sharing and monitoring. It will be used by family members of patients at Nemours. Focusing on both the patient and the family is a unique approach to healthcare. Parents of children with health conditions are motivated in monitoring their health and working with the care team to foster health and wellness while lowering the cost of healthcare. The Clarity Health Journal integrates the hospital record and the doctors records along with personal health details to create a more complete health record.

This pilot program will look at outcome measures related to patient compliance using a combination of a food and an exercise diary. Dr. David Milov (CMIO of Nemours Childrens Hospital). Looking at how the family involvement can enhance the quality of health care, Nemours is working hand-in-hand with families to find innovative ways to help manage childrens health. Dr. David Milov indicated this project will be great for patient communication, improve patient care, decrease missed appointments, decrease misunderstandings when it comes to patient instructions, encourage patient/family to have responsibility for their own care.

Over the course of the pilot, Nemours will monitor early indicators of success with researchers and family focus groups.

Designed with both personal wellness and the efficient delivery of healthcare services in mind, Clarity Health Journal fosters better quality health by promoting family and patient participation in the management of their health, integrating health data into the healthcare providers work flow, increasing the quality and accuracy of that information and driving down the cost of healthcare, explains Saverio Rinaldi, President and CEO of Consulting Cadre International Inc. Clarity Health Journal helps improve communication by involving the family in the patients care in and outside of the hospital; we feel this will reduce readmissions and emergency visits.

Clarity Health Journal has the capability to cover the broad spectrum of individual health management, from post-natal and elderly care to normal health and chronic disease management.

The solution takes an individuals health information, which today can be found in paper and/or electronic form in one or more places, including general practitioners and/or specialists offices, hospitals, clinics, long-term care facilities and patients residences and re-engineers them into an accessible, updatable, electronic health journal.

Clarity Health Journal patient-managed information provides seamless integration between the individual, doctor, hospital, clinic and government, ultimately resulting in more accurate health diagnosis and better personal care, adds Mr. Rinaldi.
