Abstract

Radio frequency identification (RFId) has recently begun to receive increased interest from practitioners and academics. This type of technology has been widely used in healthcare organizations for different purposes, like to localize patients, devices, and medical instruments. This chapter presents the results of a study in which we used RFId technology and modern systems of cost management methodologies (e.g., activity-based costing, activity-based management, and process management) in a “proof of application” aimed at defining some specific data on care needs of a person with a disability, costs of the main activities performed during the person’s rehabilitation process, and level of performance which could be reached in order to improve the “disability management” process, from a clinical as well as a managerial perspective.
