Students at Vidyamandir Trust School in Palanpur created an ATM device that uses RFID technology to save the patient’s prescription and medical history. It dispenses the necessary medications based on the doctor’s prescription. Simply swipe the Health ATM card as usual and select the medication you require. As it is currently in production, people will be able to benefit in one and a half years.
This unique project is part of different projects on display at the MAKER FEST Vadodara on 28th and 29th January 2023 at the grounds of the Faculty of Technology & Engineering, M.S. University, Vadodara.
Innovators from various areas like technology (hardware & software), education, environment, art, physiotherapy, pure sciences, pharmacy, agriculture and artisans came together at this fest and showcase their best creations. Different innovative startups and projects have been introduced in this fest.
This health ATM machine is made by four children of Vidyamandir School, Palanpur namely Nishant Panchal, Yash Patel, Anay Joshi and Aditya Thakkar and get guidance from their teacher Hiten Patel.
“The smart Health ATM is RFID based where the patients can get medicines based on doctor prescription. The special part is that patients only can get limited dosages of medicines through this machine. They are mainly focusing on rural and remote areas to launch this machine as the areas lack facilities of 24/7 medicine stores, and primary health services” said Nishant Panchal member of the team.
For Doctors, the RFID cards enable them to review and edit prescriptions for the patient after reviewing their past medical history, drug reactions, and medical information linked to the Ayushman card and Aadhaar card.
It is most useful for patients when they need medicines in an emergency, especially late at night when most stores are closed. Patients are given a card that entitles them to a certain number of medicines based on their prescription.
These students have only built a demo model, and some very exciting features are still in the works, such as a doctor and video calling facility with web storage, freezing conditions for storing some medicines, and mobile applications.
