MobiWire And Advanced Health & Care Leverage NFC To Improve Healthcare

MobiWire has partnered with Advanced Health & Care (AHC), a leading supplier of IT management systems for health and home care services, to offer a revolutionary mobile working application that leverages NFC (Near Field Communications) technology for remote health care providers. MobiWire and AHC have worked together to challenge the previously accepted parameters of integrated NFC technology, demonstrating new use cases with tangible corporate and personal benefits.

Utilising MobiWire’s NFC enabled COSY phone, AHC developed iConnect, an innovative application that enables real-time communication and information transfer between care workers and office staff. For example, on arrival and departure care workers touch their COSY phone against NFC tags placed in the user’s home to “check-in” or “check out”. The information collected works to locate the remote worker with an arrival timestamp to update the bookings and manage service delivery and subsequent financial processes.

“As a company committed to using cutting edge technology to provide premium care solutions, we have been innovators in championing NFC capable mobile applications. Together with MobiWire we have been able to develop iConnect to optimise NFC technology thereby offering superior service management to the benefit of both service user and carer alike” said Jim Chase, Managing Director of Advanced Health & Care.

The iConnect application demonstrates the capabilities of NFC technology to simplify and streamline business processes, which in turn offer an enhanced user experience within a constructed, supporting infrastructure.
