The Inadequate identification of patients in health care centers remains as a common problem that has brought incidents and adverse event to this kind of facilities. This work presents a system design to deal with this situation. To develop this proposal different identification systems and patient monitoring systems in health centers was studied, and existing identification technologies have been compared to develop this proposal. The NFC technology was chosen as part of a system solution because of its availability in mobile phones, its feature of information security, speed, low cost and simplicity in data exchange. The confidentiality of the patient information is guaranteed through authentication profiles for system access and the use of SSL and HTTPS protocols. The purpose of the proposed system is to provide an appropriated information transfer, keeping track on patients’ treatment and facilitate control of them by the health care center staff members, in order to minimize accidents and mistakes of identification and to improve the healthcare facilities’s quality.
