RFID Journal Award 2020 Winner: Best Health-Care RFID Implementation. Getting the right products at the right place at the right time is critical to the orthopedic loaner set replenishment process at Johnson & Johnson Supply Chain (JJSC). Orthopedic products are delivered to customers in loaner sets for each individual surgery. A set contains hundreds of products because surgeons don’t know exactly which products they need until the procedure is underway. The surgeon will utilize some products in the set and return the unused products to our distribution centers for reconciliation and restocking. Although the firm already used RFID to track the complete loaner set, they needed a standard solution that would work throughout the entire supply chain. Key takeaways: Learn how JJSC improved the orthopedic loaner set replenishment process while standardizing RFID tagging with GS1 EPC standards. Hear how the time saved as a result of the deployment has resulted in an improved cycle time and improved product availability.View PowerPoint PresentationSpeakerBlair Korman Senior Manager, Digital Identification & Traceability - Johnson & Johnson Supply Chain

A recent study by CDC found out that among older adults, falls are the leading cause of both fatal and non-fatal injuries. As mobile and personal health devices gain in popularity, increasing amounts of data are collected via embedded sensors, such as heart-rate monitors and accelerometers. Hear how AI (artificial intelligence) and machine learning can be used to detect falls, by analyzing real data obtained from digital wireless wristbands used at health-care facilities. In addition to detecting falls, the same information can be used to recognize different forms of human motion to ultimately create a better predictor of fall possibility. Results show a significant improvement in motion-recognition rate, while overall accuracy involving seven selected activity classes is greater than 90 percent, compared to the most recent literature at 54 percent.View PowerPoint PresentationSpeakerDr. Ismail UysalDirector of RFID Lab for Applied Research and Assistant Professor - University of South FloridaDr. Ismail Uysal has a Ph.D. in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Florida.

U.K.-based disability services organization Leonard Cheshire is using a NFC-based solution to manage the servicing of 30,000 assets across 159 sites throughout the United Kingdom, ensuring that it meets safety standards, promptly addresses any problems and reduces the amount of time workers spend filling out paperwork. Key takeaways: To meet the needs of the U.K.'s disabled population, Leonard Cheshire not only provides housing but must manage each facility and the related care equipment used within. The organization needs to know that all equipment is compliant with regulations, if and when it was physically inspected, and whether there are problems at any specific sites. Learn how the use of the technology has reduced labor hours, increased the speed at which goods are repaired and improved safety.SpeakersJon-Paul ShrosbreeHSE Support Officer, Health & Safety Policy - Leonard CheshireKarl MonetHealth, Safety and Environmental Manager - Leonard Cheshire
