Dallas, TX, May 23, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- On the heels of its successful “RFID in Healthcare” training in Canberra, Australia for ACT Health and a similar class in Melbourne, OTA Training LLC is preparing to offer additional training to companies in the Australasia region. OTA, the global leader in hands-on, vendor-neutral RFID training and certification, anticipates additional classes as interest in RFID training spreads north from Australia into Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and China.
The training is designed to better educate Australian healthcare professionals about RFID and to enable them to be at the forefront of the technology. “Upon completing the class, attendees will have a greater understanding of the abilities of RFID and how it can be used within their industry,” said Eugene Costabile, Director of OTA Training Australasia.
The upcoming training session is a vendor-neutral event that will meet the needs of the ACT health service now and into the future. Among other things, it will cover asset tracking for mobile equipment, furniture, medical devices, and other high-value items. In addition, attendees will learn how RFID can help to reduce medical errors by properly identify laboratory specimens, including biopsy samples and containers of blood or urine.
“The training is designed to help healthcare professionals and technology providers better understand the role RFID will play in the Australian healthcare industry both now and in the future,” said Tom Lail, lead instructor for OTA’s RFID in Healthcare course. “The technology is changing the way the healthcare industry works.”
In addition, the in-depth training sessions will examine the following:
· Understanding the needs of the industry and which applications provide the quickest ROI and benefits
· Tracking movable equipment, furniture, medical devices, and other high-value items both to provide ready access when needed and to reduce losses
· Ensuring the proper identification of laboratory specimens, including biopsy samples and containers of blood or urine to reduce medical errors.
· Tracking patients—both for the purposes of redundant identification prior to the administration of medications or surgery and for protecting infants, Alzheimer's patients, and others.
· Managing controlled substances, pathogens, and other materials that pose a public health risk.
· Less resources and money needed to implement RFID infrastructure project.
· Understanding of available equipment and tags.
