Dubai ambulances adopt NFC

NFC Medic keyrings unlock medical records
NFC MEDIC: Keyrings with integrated NFC tags unlock medical records for first responders

The Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services (DCAS) has launched an app that lets users store medical information and contact details that can be retrieved in an emergency with a tap of an NFC phone.

Once the user has downloaded the NFC Medic app and stored their information, it is then connected to a contactless card, bracelet or keyring to give paramedics and doctors easy access to the patient’s profile.
