Major benefits may be achieved in the efficient administration of healthcare provision if a secure and adaptable communications system could be established to allow patient and medical data to be communicated to remote locations. However, significant barriers exist preventing the uptake of this technology. This paper addresses a number of these concerns via the integration of technology allowing for the efficient generation of encryption keys directly from the characteristics of electronic devices (ICmetrics) and the utilisation of flexible communication pathways within enclosed environments offered by the incorporation of intelligent physical panels constructed from Frequency Selective Surfaces (FSS) within building designs.
