OBJECTIVE: Hospital information system is evolved toward integration of medical IT(Information Technology) and situation is changing with high speed in the ICT(Information Communication Technology) convergence. RFID/USN(Radio Frequency Identification/Ubiquitous Sensor Network) included IT839 strategy introduced by Ministry of Information and Communication has actively applied to the pilot project and developed elements technologies. RFID is one of the technologies for AIDC(Automatic Identification and Data Capture). It is the core technology to implement automatic processing system. This RFID applications are made of subsystem for patient consultation of delay, automatic reception system by itself.

METHODS: This paper implemented RFID server, PDA(Personal Digital Assistant) Client program, tag manager program, user's program. In this paper's RFID server, tag system modified patient tag that allocated patient information database server(tag UID, no, name, password) in instant network. Using RFID 13.56MHz Kit, embodies RFID system that makes possible to search and update the tag of database that makes possible to link with PDA client program in medical information system.

RESULTS: This paper provides a comprehensive basic review of RFID model in korea and suggests the evolution direction of further advanced RFID application services. In addition, designed and implemented database server's agent program and client program of PDA application that recognized RFID tag and patient data in the ubiquitous environments. This system implemented hospital information system that performed patient data based medical information database environments, and so reduced delay time of requisition, medical treatment, lab.

CONCLUSION: The design of RFID application offers reduction delay time of patient medical treatment, medical institution research management system, so there is a improvement of hospital information system in ubiquitous environment. This papers draw a conclusion, there should have working place with RFID tag related to computational system in patient information system. RFID client program displays patient data and PACS(Picture Archiving and Communication System). Doctor and officers can modify patient's medical data, search data and receipt medical consultation automatically.
