This study is a qualitative and empirical inquiry that examines the impact of the adoption of a radiofrequency identification asset-tracking system installed throughout a medical facility. The evaluation included the technological influence on the management of equipment support. In addition, the research team studied nursing and patient care and identified areas of asset-tracking technology impact. Lastly, the authors sought to evaluate financial effects of the radiofrequency identification system, including an evaluation of the rate of return on investment, patient billing, and other related fiscal features. This study places emphasis on the identification of potential initiatives as the new technology is assimilated into the clinical culture over time.
