RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification, a technology that uses a microprocessor chip and an antenna to receive RF energy from a reader and transmit information back to the reader. The chip has a UID (Unique Identifier) embedded into the memory that cannot be changed, making RFID an ideal solution for authentication. The chips on RFID inlays have memory that allows the encoding of important information about the products: such as lot and expiration. Depending on the memory requirement, RFID can be used to store the most basic information to thousands of bits of information.
Near Field Communication technology offers numerous benefits to the healthcare industry, particularly in improving medication adherence. By using NFC-enabled medication bottle caps, pillboxes, and smartphones, patients can receive reminders to take their medications and access helpful information.
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology has revolutionized the healthcare industry, particularly with the use of RFID labels.
