2017 Best Mobile App NFC Winner
Khushi Baby Inc.
Khushi Baby Inc. developed an NFC wearable health mobile application, which uses NFC mobile technology to enable health workers in India to interface with infant medical data through an NFC tag-enabled digital necklace. Unlike paper immunization records which are difficult to maintain and access, clinicians can use NFC-enabled mobile devices and the Khushi Baby or “healthy baby” mobile app to read the infant’s wearable necklace, identify which vaccinations are needed, upload the vaccine data into the cloud and monitor the infant in real-time. Modeled after amulet necklaces frequently worn by babies in this region, the waterproof, battery-free, digital necklace is ideal for use in rural communities, using low-power wireless technology for its operation.
