RFID Journal, the world's leading media and events company covering radio frequency identification (RFID), announced today that it will hold the second annual RFID in Health Care conference on Jan. 22, 2009, at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas.

"And it's the one event where health-care professionals can meet the leading RFID technology companies with solutions designed specifically for the needs of hospitals and clinics."
The conference program will focus on how all types of RFID technologies--active, Wi-Fi, passive UHF, passive HF and more--can be utilized to improve hospital operations, monitor patients and automate billing procedures. Among the speakers confirmed for the conference program are:

- Jerome R. Gardner, VP of Special Projects and Consulting Services, Integris Health
- Scott Sullivan, Business Manager, University of California, San Diego Medical Center
