An innovative wireless authentication platform for healthcare applications is designed, implemented and tested. It acts as a Common Recognition and Identification Platform (CRIP) operating with write/read function via either NFC or biometric modules for the users' authentication. The CRIP base station architecture consists of 13.56MHz NFC/RFID and 2.4GHz IEEE standard 802.15.1 BLE modules. The Bluetooth function enables the medical device communication with the tens meter range RF link. The CRIP prototype was tested successfully in hospital environments. The blood pressure data transmission in real time was collected and monitored with an assistant living healthcare platform. Finally, the CRIP complies in conformity with the electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) standard EN55022 Class B requirements.
