Ambient Intelligence in an educational context: A proposal for NFC technological adaptability in nursing care training
Junta de Comunidades de Castilla-La Mancha
From 2009 to 2010
We have developed a system based on NFC technology and touching interaction to help nursing students to perform patient care tasks with simple interactions, including medication administration, clinical tests, and vital signs supervision among other. This is achieved through NFC services deployment in the environment. Also, an evaluation of the system was performed. The aim of this system is to reduce the information management from the environment and the implementation of this system in a hospital plant would increase the time that nurses spend with their patients. For this, each nurse has associated a NFC phone. Turn, the NFC mobile phone can interact with RFID tags (known as NFC tags) distributed by the environment. The necessary process is launched automatically when the interaction happens. A touch screen is used to display and synchronize the clinical records of the patients.
