Activity Overview

Despite the growing availability of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology in healthcare settings, broad adoption of the technology into medication management workflows has been slow. Faculty will engage learners in the findings and practice implications of the ASHP Foundation research project on RFID in healthcare that included a survey and virtual research panel. Two participants of the research project will join two co-authors of the report to share their thoughts on the findings and the future use of RFID in the medication use process. 

The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education.

This activity was planned to meet the educational needs of pharmacy leaders interested in learning about RFID technology current and future healthcare applications, key considerations for implementation and research gaps for wider adoption.

  • Describe key findings of the ASHP Foundation Survey on RFID in Healthcare.
  • Identify potential practice gaps and barriers to wider adoption of RFID technology.
  • Explain opportunities for future uses of RFID technology in medication management and patient care.
