Abstract [en]

In certain parts of the world, medical waste is often stolen and sold during transportation, resulting in disease transmission and environmental pollution, which seriously affect people's health. Consequently, guaranteeing a safe and correct delivery of medical waste has a significant meaning. This article analyzes the problems of medical waste transportation management in Beijing Haidian Hospital. To assess the impact of deploying RFID technology, we established a transportation model, which includes three business modules: temporary storage and distribution, loading and transportation, uploading and disposal. At the same time, the role of such transportation model in solving problems was evaluated. On the basis of this, the social and economic benefits of the technical model are discussed and the shortcomings of the research are analyzed. We found that the RFID technology model could solve the problems existing in the transportation process of medical waste to a certain extent, and implement safe transportation management of medical waste. It provides some guidance on the practical application of the technical model.
