A Standalone RFID and NFC Based Healthcare

Amol Dnyaneshwar Potgantwar


NFC is a standards-based, short-range wireless
connectivity technology that enables simple and safe two-way
interactions between electronic devices. The concept is based
on combination of smartcard and contactless interconnection
technologies; NFC is compatible with todays field proven RFIDtechnology.
If this technology is used for identification of patient
in hospital, it will be very useful. Patients have different illness.
When doctors operate patients or exanimate patients, if the doctor
confuses the disease of patient, a fatal medical circumstance
may occur. If RFID and NFC technology is used for this case, we
can easily protect patients from fatal medical mistakes. It has the
potential to make almost all wireless technologies and also the
applications on these technologies easy enough so that everyone,
even the non-technical can use them.
Technological development and modern medicine practices are
amongst the outstanding factors triggering this shift. This trend is
resulting in a greater demand for health care-related services and
greater competition among health care providers. Achieving a
high operational efficiency in the health care sector is an essential
goal for organizational performance evaluation. Efficiency uses to
be considered as the primary indicator of hospital performance.
In order to bring down the cost and improve efficiency, intelligent
systems can play a significant role in providing intelligently
processed and personalized information about patients to doctors,
their health care staff (i.e. nurses) and health care administrators
