RFID Tag & Custom Software for Denture Identification

A global dental prosthetics maker envisioned a new method for identifying and tracking dentures, from point of manufacture at the lab to end use among residents at nursing homes and other care facilities. While 23 U.S. states currently require some form of physical user identification on dentures, compliance has typically been very low. The reason being is that the added costs associated with engraving patient names on the dentures, as well as a user’s typical reluctance to reveal themselves as a denture wearer. In nursing facilities, because most dentures lack user names it’s often difficult to match individuals with their dentures after they’ve been routinely collected for cleaning and maintenance, or misplaced. These facilities also face potential HIPAA medical confidentiality violations if a labelled denture is mishandled and user identity is exposed beyond facility personnel. With the high costs of custom-made dentures and their day-to-day necessity for the user, this common problem called out for an innovative technical remedy.
