Secure Healthcare Solutions

Smart system solutions to advance medical IoT devices and medicinal products that increase hospital efficiency, patient safety and quality of life with low-power efficiency, intelligence, security and wireless connectivity.

Product Protection and Supply Chain Control

Counterfeit products have been a growing global challenge in the pharmaceutical and medical device industries, affecting not only developing countries and emerging markets. There is also a growing risk of gray market diversions and illegal reuse of original packaging. Accordingly, there are increasing regulations across markets that require solutions for robust brand and product protection as well as supply chain transparency and control.

NXP offers a breadth of security solutions to help manufacturers protect their medication and medical device products while improving the visibility and control of their supply chains. Multiple NFC-RFID tag functionalities and security features can be leveraged to offer effective, multi-layered protection solutions from production to the end users including:

  • Anti-counterfeit protection and secure authentication
    • Smartphone enabled and device-medication automated
  • Tamper evidence and first opening indication
  • Identification and tracking for controlling the supply chain

Patient Safety and Therapy Adherence

Interactive NFC tags applied to drug packaging can support patients' medication adherence. Communication can be smartphone based, with easy access to product information, dosage instructions, expiration date and more. Alternatively, a system setup ensures a medical device and its consumables, such as a drug, are safely integrated. Such automated system communication can be used for injection or inhaler devices, pens, diagnostic equipment and more. With connectivity to healthcare professionals, patients can be advised to adjust their medication dosage as needed. At the same time, loyalty to the drug and pharmaceutical company is built up among the physicians and users.
