RFID saves lives in India

RFID is improving patient care — and saving lives — around the globe.

This week’s issue of RFID 24-7 looks at RFID-enabled medical records management pilots that have begun in the United Arab Emirates and India. RFID is literally saving lives in these poverty stricken regions by tracking medical records of those who visit health clinics. Individual Tracking and Records Management (RFID-ITRM) was piloted first in Dubai, United Arab Emirates last year and recently expanded to a larger pilot in Ahmedabad, India

The RFID-based ID system is allowing health care workers to track patients in the city. Dr. Ali Zalzala, an IEEE volunteer and lead for the project, tells RFID 24-7 that the project — which distributes RFID-enabled ID cards to citizens — is improving patient care and saving lives every day.

“Prior to the system, physicians would not always remember what happened with a [patient] a week or so ago, and mistakes did happen with medication and diagnosis,” he says. “Holding patient records is making a huge change and saving life. Physicians now can look at the entire history of a patient and know if drug interaction or previous episodes may cause issues.”

To date, the India pilot has registered about 650 individuals, and 250 have been issued RFID-enabled ID cards, which allow instant access to their medical records at both clinics and remotely in the field when health care workers visit residences.
