Medgadget reports about the IP Development Company Gentag and Frank Sammeroff working on a new smart, wireless ID skin patch technology that aims to reduce medical errors in hospitals worldwide,
This patented, non-invasive solution combines disposable skin patches with RFID tags and cellphones, enabling doctors and nurses to use their handsets or wireless PDAs to update medical charts, time of patient visit and drug administration.
Not only that, it can be used to warn about possible drug interactions prior to drug delivery on-the-spot - a great tool for a doctor who has been working for 2 shifts in a row without stopping.
