Clocking in or out of an office usually requires a company card that you flash at the entry and exit points of the building. Fujitsu is working on offering a new solution for hospitals that can be used during the check-in process. This solution will connect electronic card holders using electronic paper to a patient navigation system, where it will guide patients to examination rooms or diagnostic testing rooms etc.
Just 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 where to go using visual displays and vibration.
