The Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology is actually considered a hot topic in all scientific areas and has been described as a major enabling technology for the automation of many processes. Although it is not a new technology it has only recently come to the awareness of the public and widely used in many sectors and particularly in the Healthcare. This paper aims to illustrate the RFID technology deployment in Healthcare organisations, more precisely in infant security systems inside the hospitals. To attain this objective a case study about the experience of three hospitals and one RFID technology provider is presented to highlight the main architectural characteristics, functionality, and advantages associated with the RFID deployment.
