Radio frequency identification (RFID) found its way very quickly in different industries. Supply chain was the pioneer adopter of the technology, and as a result, inventory and goods tracking cost decreased while the tracking speed and accuracy increased. Although the healthcare sector could highly benefit from the RFID technology specifically in increasing patients' safety, it is still having difficulties due to different concerns in security, privacy, radio frequency interference with medical equipments and trust to list a few. This paper looks at enabling security framework for RFID technology in contactless payment module used in credit cards, and how this infrastructure can be partially used to design a secure, practical and cost effective solution for the healthcare sector.
