Radio Frequency Identification (RFlD) technology is increasingly being explored for deployment in hospitals to improve their existing processes. In recent years, RPID pilots has lead to full scale implementation in hospitals, especially for tracking of expensive equipment as well as movable assets that are critical in surgeries. However, academic research is yet to emerge with a generic process model that can be adapted contextually for deployment of RPID in particular hospital settings. In this paper, we propose an action research framework for a pilot implementation of RPID in a large Indian hospital, the experiences of which will contribute to and result, in the development of such a process model.
