As an important part of people's daily life, more and more hospitals are gradually adopting more intelligent and humane medical management systems and measures. Through the innovation and application of medical technology to improve the operating efficiency of hospitals, reduce errors and medical accidents caused by human negligence, and provide patients with a better medical service experience.

In modern hospital information management system, medical wristband is one of the very important information carriers. In the traditional hospitals of the past, a disposable paper wristband was usually used with handwritten text or printed barcodes to record information such as the patient's name and admission time. Medical staff can scan the barcode on the bracelet or check the information on the bracelet for identity verification.

However, traditional barcode wristbands must be identified by aligning the barcode with specific optical instruments, which has a certain impact on the efficiency of medical work. In addition, the handwritten information of the paper wristband is inevitably misjudged due to misreading due to differences in handwriting, external pollution, and naked eye recognition.

With the continuous development of the Internet of Things in recent years, RFID wristband in the medical industry has attracted the attention of hospitals in all regions and at all levels due to its many advantages such as long-distance identification, real-time identification and update of data, and simultaneous collection of multiple data.

RFID technology can not only play an effective role in the management of hospital equipment, instruments and tools. In terms of patient management, medical RFID wristbands provide great convenience for medical staff and promote the further development of hospital information.

Compared with traditional hospital wristbands, what advantages does medical RFID have?
1. Medical RFID wristbands can add, modify and delete data stored in the data countless times, which facilitates the updating of information and the use of wristbands.

2. In terms of data information reading, barcode wristbands must be scanned one-to-one through optical devices, and RFID data reading has the ability to identify long distances and simultaneously collect multiple data. As long as it is within the scope of the RFID read-write device, data can be read and written on the wristband to achieve positioning and tracking and efficient management of the patient.

3. As the traditional wristband records data by handwriting or printing barcodes, once the surface is damaged and contaminated, it will seriously affect its use. Medical RFID wristbands store patient information in the chip, even if the surface is worn, it will not affect the reading of the chip information, and the chip information can be encrypted to protect patient privacy and hospital information security.

4.In terms of product costs, with the gradual popularization of RFID technology, RFID wristbands have also dropped significantly in product costs, and their cost performance is higher.

Compared with the traditional medical wristband used in the past, the wristband using RFID technology has obvious advantages in application. With the increasing development of RFID technology and products, more RFID technology products will be applied to hospitals, and the medical industry will also make great strides on the road to informationization, bringing people a higher quality medical service experience.
