Intelligent Healthcare Monitoring using Radio Frequency Identification Detection. Communications on Applied Electronics. 4, 5 ( February 2016), 6-13. DOI=10.5120/cae2016652058
The use of Radio Frequency Identification technology enhances efficiency and security of many real-time systems. The features of RFID makes it adaptable in many fields such as transportation, security, agriculture, healthcare focusing mainly on tracking and storage of information. The addition of RFID system to the healthcare sector would improve overall efficiency of system with minimum cost of maintenance for the long run. The medical history of a patient could be stored electronically eliminating the need of storing paper-based patient files. By automating the healthcare sector, records are readily available to doctors which are very helpful in taking decisions and providing immediate care to the patients. This paper proposes Intelligent Healthcare Monitoring using RFID technology and secure ZigBee networking. This aims to validate data accuracy and confidentiality. The proposed system is supported using the algorithms, Record Duplication Checking (RDC) and Automatic Patient Record Reading Process (APRRP). Our proposed system is also tested using Ultra High Frequency RFID and mesh network of ZigBee devices. Based on the experimental results, we proved that the proposed Intelligent Health Care System could be implemented in real-time healthcare facilities where the patient medical data is stored automatically without much human intervention.
