When he enters his car for a drive, he taps the tag draped over the rearview mirror in his car, and it “sets” his phone to go into GPS-and-driving mode. When he gets home for the evening, he taps a tag on his nightstand, and his phone then goes into sleepy time mode, with the ringer off and the alarm automatically set for the next day.
Soon, thanks to the work of two companies, something similar could be coming to a radiology department near you.
As announced nearly 10 days ago, we have teamed up with WPG Americas to deliver a near field communications (NFC) solution that allows data from high-end medical imaging devices to be transferred to multiple exam room monitors throughout a provider’s office, without cables, wires or additional network investment. Digital radiography cameras are rapidly replacing traditional x-ray systems in medical offices of all sizes, because they expose patients to less radiation, provide higher quality images and greatly simplify record keeping. DOTmed News, a leading news source for the medical equipment industry, learned of the project and went on to publish an article entitled “Google Wallet tech comes to radiology” discussing the breakthrough in radiology departments across the country.
