Why the Healthcare Industry Will Accept the RFID/Cashless System

One of the most complicated systems with which we must deal is the healthcare industry. With the requirements of insurance companies and ever increasing government regulation of healthcare, we have seen exponential growth in the amount of information that is gathered and kept on file. The healthcare industry is perhaps more encumbered by required documentation than any other segment of our economy. Not only do those who work in healthcare have to adhere to the financial accounting procedures that are common to all businesses, but they must also create and maintain every patient’s health record, file insurance claims, maintain records of their dealings with insurance companies, and keep an almost infinite number of files on all that they do in order to satisfy the requirements of the law.

The cashless/RFID will simplify this ever burgeoning task of record keeping and at the same time reduce the number of errors in the treatment of patients.

One of the first applications of RFID in the practice of medicine is in the very important area of patient identification. An implanted RFID chip in the patient enables the medical facility to ensure that the person who is being treated is who they claim to be. Presently some medical facilities keep a photograph of the patient in their file. This is done to prevent insurance fraud. Without a photo of the patient in their file and a photo ID, it is possible for uninsured people to seek medical care using someone else’s insurance card. If everyone was required to have a chip implanted in their body, then it could be used as the primary form of patient identification. A person would always have it with them, and it could not be loaned to someone else. This would eliminate the fraud that is committed when an uninsured person seeks treatment under another person’s healthcare insurance. Of course, the obvious problem with requiring every person to have an implanted chip is that without the chip, medical treatment will be denied.

Another very important benefit that would come from a medical RFID system is that it would prevent mistakes in the treatment of patients who have the same or similar names. As a pastor who visits the sick who are hospitalized, I have seen rosters of patients where two people have the same name. When these patients are treated by the same doctors and nurses, errors in treatment can occur. Since patient identification in the new cashless/RFID system will be verified by the data stored in a central database and retrieved by scanning each person’s implanted chip, mistakes due to misidentification will be reduced if not totally eliminated. When it comes to identifying people in the new cashless/RFID control system, a person’s name will become irrelevant.

Mistakes in treating patients that are caused by other kinds of human error will be greatly reduced as well. With the RFID system in place it will no longer be necessary for hospitals to put bracelets (which can be removed or misread) on patients, since each person would arrive at the hospital carrying their own unique identifier in the form of an implanted chip. When a treatment is to be administered, the patient’s identity will be confirmed by scanning their chip and the computer will show the nurse or the physician the person’s record, which will confirm the patient’s identification and the treatment that is to be administered. In the case of medication, once the patient’s implanted chip has been scanned, then the RFID chip that identifies the medication can be scanned and the computer will ensure that the medication is a match for the particular patient. The computer would then also be able to verify if the medication is being given at the proper interval, and in the correct dosage.

Of course one of the most obvious benefits of the RFID system in a medical setting is that since a patient can be instantly identified, their medical records can be quickly accessed in an emergency situation. This can be done even if the patient is unconscious and therefore unable to assist medical personnel. Identification of the patient can be made and their medical records accessed if the patient has no other form of identification with them, because the chip will be carried in their body.

Identifying the patient can be done away from a hospital setting by the emergency response personnel who are at the scene, as long as there is a scanner available. By scanning the patient’s implanted chip and utilizing a communications link with the hospital or trauma center, the patient’s identity can be established and their medical records can be accessed by the emergency room physician. This will enable the physician to have all the information needed to make the best possible decision in an emergency situation. For instance, the information that is accessed will reveal if the patient has any pre-existing medical conditions that must be considered. Taking into consideration the unique health history of the patient, the physician can then order the best treatment to be administered by the emergency response personnel. By having quick access to a patient’s medical records even before the patient is transported, the emergency room staff can better prepare for the patient’s arrival. Arrangements can be made for special care or medications that might be required by a particular patient.

With today’s satellite communications systems, a person’s identification can be established and their medical, personal, insurance and financial records can be accessed from anywhere in the world by scanning chip that is implanted in their body.

Another benefit to using implanted microchips as the primary means of establishing personal identification is that, just as it can be used to positively identify the living, it can also be used to identify the dead. Sometimes identifying those who are deceased can be a very difficult task, especially when there is a disaster that claims the lives of many victims.

Some methods that are used today to identify the dead are DNA matching, fingerprinting, dental and medical records. These methods require time and a great deal of expertise on the part of those who perform the procedures, and therefore can be very expensive. Using RFID technology, the implanted chip can be scanned to immediately establish the identity of one who is deceased. If scanning is not enough to get a positive ID, then computer files containing information about DNA, finger prints, medical and dental records, along with other identifiers can also be quickly retrieved. This would aid in the identification of bodies that are burned, decomposed or otherwise rendered unidentifiable by ordinary means.

Of course, the ability to control who receives healthcare will be another weapon that will be used to force people into the new economic order and eventually to worship the beast. If someone refuses to yield to the edicts to those who control the cashless/RFID system, they will be denied treatment for their medical condition. Satan has known for a long time how to afflict people in an attempt to turn them against God.


And Satan answered the Lord, and said, Skin

for skin, yea, all that a man hath will he give for

his life. But put forth thine hand now, and touch his

bone and his flesh, and he will curse thee to thy

face.  (Job Chapter 2: 4--5)


Satan certainly will use this system to deny medical care to all who refuse to accept the mark of the beast. Like Job though, those who have believed in the Lord Jesus Christ will find that His grace is sufficient, even in the worst of times.
