How do you label people, and how do you track them?

“The Patient I.D Bracelet Gets An Overhaul,” The Wall Street Journal, February 21, 2019 A9.  Changes in the paper-bracelet-on-your-wrist approach to hospital IDs.

Do the paper bracelets spread germs?  Do they make people feel worse?  Is a temporary tattoo better?  Can a better bracelet be used to track someone electronically and to monitor their activity?  Do we need a microchip?

Is there a better way to manage this information?
