MIC Sun / Medical ID Card


Care for medical staff. In January 2020, a large-scale viral pneumonia outbreak occurred in Wuhan, China. As a witness to the incident, I discovered two problems. First, medical personnel wearing chemical protective clothing are often difficult to identify with each other. Second, timely recording of changing information is also a difficult issue. To this end, I will design a universal high-identification medical certificate, and at the same time implant an NFC chip inside the certificate, edit medical & personal information through a mobile terminal device, and import it into the NFC chip to achieve timely recording of data information.
