Create and introduction paragraph describing the topic (RFID or Smartcard), explain what will be addressed in the paper, and evaluate the pros and cons of using implantable devices or the Smartcard.
Create an introduction: Introduce the topic (RFID or Smartcard)
Body of the Paper:
Evaluate the Pros and Cons:
Analyze the pros and cons of the use of the implanted RFID or the ‘Smartcard’. To assist you in analysis, explore the US Food and Drug Administration Guidance Document (https://www.fda.gov/Radiation-EmittingProducts/RadiationSafety/ElectromagneticCompatibilityEMC/ucm116647.htm
(Links to an external site.)
) and investigate other sources on the internet or in the current literature. There are companies currently producing “chips.” Read marketing information found online for companies producing “chips” for additional background information.
Explain how you use smart devices in your personal life. How has this technology been incorporated in society?
Assess the Ethical, Legal and Social Implications:
What are the potential legal, ethical, and social implications, which should be considered if implementing and using RFID or the ‘Smartcard’ if it is instituted, in your practice setting?
Identify populations who might greatly benefit from the use of the RFID or the ‘Smartcard’? (e.g. people with Alzheimer’s, children, those with cognitive disabilities, etc.).
Refer to the scenario above. How would the redundancy of information be addressed for the RFID or the ‘Smartcard’
Evaluate the Scenario and Discuss a Policy to Incorporate
Identify how your organization could incorporate the use of either of these technologies (RFIDs or other smart devices, such as Smart phone) in the practice setting?
Discuss the logistics. How would a healthcare provider access the information from the patient’s RFID or the ‘Smartcard’?
In thinking of the scenario above, identify the extent that patients can access their own information? Can the user access the exact same information as the healthcare provider?
What types of policies might be needed at your healthcare facility to safeguard patients who have an implanted RFID or the ‘Smartcard’?
Conclusion and Recommendation
Draft a conclusion statement which summarizes a possible recommendation for using RFID or Smartcard devices or explain why you feel further consideration of use is not warranted.
