MetadataShow full item record
Nowadays there is a need to improve the life quality of people in different social environments. One of the main fields to propose new improvements is healthcare. In this kind of scenario, health workers are doing a very important job because they are responsible for providing appropriate care to their patients. However, they are complaining about the complicated use of healthcare applications. In this paper, we describe a developed system based on NFC technology and touching interaction (as a complement) to help nursing students to perform patient care tasks with simple interactions, including medication administration, clinical tests, and vital signs supervision among other. This goal is achieved through NFC services deployment in the environment. Moreover, we have evaluated the developed prototype in two Nursing Schools obtaining interesting results.
