Abstract:

To create standards-based secure access to patient’s personal data and medical records by using RFID tags and Web Service with the help of hardware kit. This system uses Web service interfaces to support standard Electronic Health Records for patient record interoperability. Customers can view and update their personal medical information via the web site, which seamlessly sync with one another. Because the system is built on Web services, it is easy to update, adapt and grow. Trying to identify an unconscious patient or patient who is unable to communicate can lead to delays in treatment. With this system emergency departments improve efficiency while enhancing the level of patient care. This project uses the hardware kit to get the patient id. The hardware kit will send the patient id to the serial port of the system. Hence tracking and monitoring of patients, their case sheets and medical equipments can be efficiently carried out. However, the reality of RFID adoption is far behind earlier expectation. This study reviews the literature on RFID applications in healthcare based on a formal research framework. We aim to identify current opportunities, potential benefits and adoption barriers. Our study shows that most care providers indicated that RFID to be functional and useful in asset tracking and patient identification. Major barriers to RFID adoption in healthcare include prohibitive costs, technological limitations, and privacy concerns. Although RFID offers healthcare practitioners advantages to enhance clinical practice, better designed RFID systems are needed to increase acceptance and proper use of RFID in healthcare.
