This 14-page white paper explains how medical and wellness device makers can use NFC to add functionality and improve patient and user experiences.
Medical electronics — equipment used in hospitals, surgeries and at home — is a segment of healthcare, while wellness devices are mostly targeted at home use. Both offer many use cases for NFC.
‘How NFC can enhance healthcare and wellness experiences’ looks at remote patient monitoring (RPM) and the internet of medical things (IoMT), as well as the importance of standards — including personal health device (PHD) and NFC Forum standards — in allowing interoperability and enabling easy integration.
The white paper also details sample use cases for NFC in the health sector including data logging, parameter setting, firmware upgrading, maintenance, smart monitoring, charging, pairing, traceability, accessory recognition and consumer engagement.
Finally, the white paper looks at specific products that lend themselves to healthcare and wellness applications, including ST25 NFC tags, dynamic tags, readers and the industry-leading ST25Connect developer support program.
‘How NFC can enhance healthcare and wellness experiences’ has been produced and sponsored by STMicroelectronics.
