SmartMetric has announced a new biometric protected portable health record card that can store your medical scans and images. The card addresses a need for secure, portable medical records. Having access to these records in an emergency may shorten the time to receive live saving medical intervention.
The card is the size and thickness of a credit card. Inside the card is a powerful processor with extensive memory. A fingerprint scanner on the card surface scans the owner’s fingerprint. If the scan matches the encrypted fingerprint information stored on the card, the medical records can be accessed through a computer worldwide.
“Having spent a long time in research and development of our biometric secure fingerprint unlocked credit card, we have been able to use the same miniature electronics technology into creating this amazing leap forward in portable medical files,” according to SmartMetric’s President and CEO, Chaya Hendrick.
This card can help give people with pre-existing medical conditions, such as diabetes, heart conditions or other serious medical conditions peace of mind, especially as they travel.
While not available to the general public at this time, the biometric health record card has gone into production for a field trial. SmartMetrics, through partnership with Argentina-based Grupo Datco, has contracted with a large academic institution for campus use. The trial will allow other businesses and government agencies to see the potential of biometric health record card.
