Date:9/20/2007

PatientSecure(TM) on Display at Leading Healthcare Conference

SUNNYVALE, Calif. and TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Identity management in a busy healthcare setting is a hectic and time consuming process, especially when it must be repeated with each patient's visit. Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc., a leading supplier of innovative computer products, and HT Systems, a healthcare technology company, today announced their collaboration on PatientSecure, a comprehensive patient identification management solution. HT Systems and Fujitsu will demonstrate the PatientSecure device at the American Association of Healthcare Administrative Management (AAHAM) Conference, Sept. 26-28, in Ft. Lauderdale, Fl.

The PatientSecure solution incorporates the Fujitsu PalmSecure(TM) biometric authentication sensor that uses near infrared light to capture the vein pattern in a patient's palm, providing a highly reliable and accurate form of authentication. Utilizing the latest in biometric security technology, the biometric sensor converts the palm vein image into a digital record that is associated with a patient's medical records. The combined technology solution from HT Systems protects patients from identity theft and insurance fraud, and ensures that each individual receives the proper medical care.

"By implementing PatientSecure, hospitals realize an immediate increase in staff efficiency and patient satisfaction. Registration and re-admittance times for patients are reduced five to ten fold. In addition, because the patient's biometric information is married to the patient's medical record, you can be certain that the right medical care is given to the right person," said David Wiener, vice president, sales and marketing, HT Systems.

"PatientSecure has already been deployed at Carolinas HealthCare System, a 19-hospital health system, creating the largest user base for any biometrically powered patient registration solution in North America. We believe that through our alliance with HT Systems, the patients and hospital staff that interact with the PatientSecure solution will provide a greater sense of security in today's modern world of medicine," Joel Hagberg, vice president, marketing and business development, Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc.
