Quality of Service And NFC Communications Security of Applications Dedicated to Dependent People.

ABSTRACT

The application of Near Field Communication (NFC) technology in every part of the world today has tremendously improved efficiency and effectiveness regarding security.

The use of this technology in the healthcare system has taken the area to greater heights of confidence and reliability, especially for medical personnel, as well as the patients.

This project focuses on helping dependent people live their lives more productively by helping them manage their lives better.

With this application, there is an e-relationship between the health care provider and the patient. This technology redefines the traditional, doctor-pharmacistpatient ‘prescription’ relationship.

Here the doctors send an e-prescription to the pharmacist, the pharmacist then uses the NFC tags to tag those drugs with relative information linked to the prescribed drug.

The patient on his part uses an NFC-enabled smartphone, which possesses the mobile application to read the information on the tagged drug, this beeps when it is time to take the drug.

When this application is installed on a smartphone (NFC-enabled), the smartphone automatically launches the application once the drug box is brought close to the smartphone. The smartphone reads the prescribed drug and how the drug must be taken.

Introduction

Background

The level at which technology is fast growing in the current age has left an indelible mark in the development of many fields of study in the world today (Afolabi, 2007).

With this, several areas  in information and communication technology have been innovative to  ensure  remarkable  growth in the persistent evolution of the society at large. In order words, the bond between technology and healthcare is illuminating by the day (AFRICATELECOMIT, 2014).

Thus projecting an upbeat future for the wellbeing of people worldwide, especially the  dependent (those with disability).

Some researchers are optimistic that the use of mobile application technology will bring revolutionary changes to the healthcare system, particularly with dependent people (AFRICATELECOMIT, 2014).

For example, health researchers have recognized the impending effect of mobile technology, especially with that of NFC technology.

Based on this understanding, we have different implementations such as implementing different systems like, Ambient Intelligence (ISTAG, 2010) and Ambient Assisted  Living  (AAL)  that aims to help the elderly at home, live and carry out their daily routine activities independently (IWAAL, 2009).

Moreover, NFC technology development and utilization has come a long way and many more innovations are ongoing in the NFC world. Many areas in business, smart homes,  mobile  payment and air ticketing that have embraced NFC technology have witnessed major advancements.

NFC technology is simple, inbuilt and a new short-range wireless connectivity technology that  has evolved from a combination of prevailing connectionless identification systems, and interconnection technologies that allow one to use their mobile phone such as a smartphone for innovative purposes (Esko Strömmer et al, 2006).

An example of NFC-enabled smartphones is shown in Figure 1 below. The technology is fast, secure and convenient. Thus, it is automatic! There is no need to launch an application!
