This paper is a research paper that develops NFC-based smart-drug information management cap that can be easily attached to existing medication so that it can be easily used to provide information for elderly patients. We aim to develop a system prototype that provides smart-drug information management service so that elderly patients can easily receive drug time without alarm regardless of place and can check the drug history information at any time.
