Ambient Intelligence in an Educational Context: a proposal for technological adaptability of NFC in Nursing Education
Financed by: Regional Government of Castilla-La Mancha. Ref.: PII1I09-0123-27
Principal Investigator: José Bravo
Role: Hired for the project
2008 - 2009
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.
