Although substantial progress was made in improving the sharing of patient medical information among healthcare providers, professionals still need to address the issue of efficient electronic medical records. Thus, real-time information presents a persistent challenge to the emergency response community. In emergency situations, particularly with unconscious, incoherent and unaccompanied patients, providing emergency physicians with a patientpsilas accurate medical history could be the difference between life and death. The RFID technology has penetrated the healthcare sector due to its increased functionality, low cost, high reliability and easy-to-use capabilities. As the present paper demonstrates, our major aim was to design an RFID-based system architecture and data model that would provide efficient means to perform essential information management for emergency care across hospital and country boundaries.
