This paper presents the design, implementation, and evaluation of a passive UHF radio frequency identification system that was recently installed at a hospital in Cyprus. The three main pillars of this pilot project was patient identification, real-time location service of medical assets, and drug inventory control and monitoring. In this paper, we present the main steps followed during the design and implementation phases, some of the main features of the system application, and major finding drawn after the evaluation and testing of the system in a realistic environment.
