Fujitsu electronic paper based electronic card

For those of you out there who are true blue office drones, then clocking in and clocking out of a department often involves some form of company card that you beep at each entrance and exit point of the building. The medical industry has something rather similar as well, and Fujitsu is working on offering a new solution that can be used during the check-in process at medical facilities including hospitals and clinics. Thanks to a proprietary wireless communications system, the solution will connect electronic card holders utilizing electronic paper with both a patient navigation system, where it will guide patients to examination rooms or diagnostic testing rooms in medical facilities, not to mention an electronic medical record system. All you need to do is insert an IC-equipped registration card, and the electronic card holder will automatically link into the medical facility’s electronic patient navigation system and electronic medical record system to ensure the registration process is complete. It will also show outpatients their place in the queue whenever they are waiting for their consultation, where visual displays and vibration will alert them when their turn arrives. February 2011 is the earliest when it will hit the market commercially.
