The National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCSS) has introduced a new RFID system to improve productivity. The system, named Real-time Ambulatory Patient Information Deployment Enabler or Rapide, is aimed at increasing the number of chemotherapy treatments per day, thereby reducing patients' waiting times.
"Patients who do not show up due to hospitalisation or being unwell, or patients who are late due to bottlenecks at the oncology clinics, no longer cause wastage of resources. Rapide allows the centre's staff to quickly intervene and re-allocate resources.
