Patients spend much time in hospitals for non-functional activities such as registering themselves, depositing money, and then collecting bands/tokens from the reception. Manual efforts such as taking the readings and recording it again take time. Hospitals lose some patients (i.e., money) and patients lose their time due to inefficient system. The Automated Healthcare System consists of an NFC system, sensors (temperature, pressure, and ECG), ZigBee communication module and a terminal (i.e., a display device). The system will authenticate the patient through his/her NFC card. It will take the patient’s readings (temperature, pressure, and beat rate) by sensors and display it in the LCD screen. The communication module, ZigBee, will then transfer the readings wirelessly to the doctor’s PC. © 2018, Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.
