Abstract

Over the past decade, observation medicine has become an important component of emergency medicine. There are several settings in which observation medicine has been useful and valuable.(1) RFID as the patient identification not only generates the on-line laboratory data and radiology report via hand-held wireless PDA this RFID system help physician stream-line patient admission to acute bed or ICU in the emergency department more effectively.
