Biometric Fingerprint Technology used to Identify Patients and Retrieve
Crucial Medical Records
ATLANTA, Aug. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- M2SYS Technology, an award-winning biometric technology research and development firm, announced today that they have partnered with Gnosis Medical Services to provide a biometric fingerprint solution for patient identification in developing countries.
"In many developing countries, there is no form of identification. When an individual visits a doctor, there is no way to identify them or to find a record of their past medical history, and language barriers can create a problem in receiving effective medical treatment. M2SYS' Bio-Plugin(TM) fingerprint solution was easy to incorporate into our portable Four Corners Medical System, and has provided us with a concrete method to identify patients and to retrieve their medical history with a scan of their fingerprint. In this way, patients can receive the best medical care possible," states Rogers Hellman, founder of Gnosis.
Bio-Plugin(TM) enables software companies to seamlessly integrate a complete fingerprint recognition system, including a high-performance 1:N identification engine. Bio-Plugin(TM) eliminates the system dependencies, extensive development, and specialized knowledge of biometric complexities inherent to fingerprint SDKs.
"Proper identification of patients in developing countries is critical in providing quality healthcare," states Michael Trader, President of M2SYS. "Without medical history records, there is no way for a doctor to know of patients' past illnesses or medical allergies, which hinders effective treatment. We are proud to partner with Gnosis for such an altruistic project, and are excited to continually provide innovative biometric solutions that will improve the quality of life for individuals throughout the world."
