Internet of Things (IoT) and Near Field Communication (NFC) together have created a massive impact on healthcare applications globally. In India, there is a requirement to upgrade this technology. As healthcare is a basic necessity for everyone in order to stay healthy and fit, the main goal of present healthcare system is to build an affordable smart healthcare monitoring system. With IoT and NFC in healthcare sector, it is possible to manage the patient data in better way and also improve the patient flow in the hospital. During emergency situations when a patient is unable to communicate, the NFC tag could be tapped against the reader at any hospital in the group for faster retrieval of patient information. The system captures the data from an individual patient using sensors and stores it on the cloud. It provides information about the health conditions of the patient and sends an alert in case of abnormalities. The result shows that the availability of the data is faster due to NFC integration. The proposed system can be used in rural areas for ambulatory care. In addition, the system can be used in triaging of patients during emergency based upon vital signs, thereby taking immediate actions. The implemented system will thus be useful and affordable thereby providing efficient and life-saving solutions in the healthcare domain.
