The healthcare industry is progressively involved in adopting new technologies to provide improved quality of care given to patients. The implementation of RFID technology has globally impacted several industries and this revolution has improved the aspects of service delivery in the healthcare industry as well. The RFID technology has the potential to track medical assets and interact with almost any of the medical devices, pharmaceutical materials, IT equipment, or individual patients, deployed in hospitals all over the world. The motivation behind this paper is to investigate the advantages and obstacles to implement RFID technology in the healthcare sector highlighted in the literature. Further, we highlight the most possible methods or technologies to be adapted to overcome the limitations of implementation.
