M2SYS and Medibase healthcare solutions lead joint session about emerging trend of fingerprint recognition technology in healthcare industry
Leading health care solutions provider unveils integrated M2SYS biometrics system to address growing industry concern over accurate patient identification
Atlanta, June 9, 2005 – M2SYS Technology, an innovator in biometric technology research and development, announced it has finalized a long-term partnership agreement with The Medibase Group, Inc., a leading software solutions provider for the healthcare industry, to integrate and distribute the M2SYS patent-pending fingerprint recognition solution called Bio-Plugin™ under the Medibase product name BASEmetric™. The solution is now available to Medibase’s growing customer base of more than 500 hospitals, health systems, and integrated delivery networks throughout the United States to improve access to vital information, optimize revenue generation, and provide better care.
The BASEmetric™ integrated patient fingerprint identification system was introduced at the recent National Association of Healthcare Access Management (NAHAM) conference in Orlando, FL where representatives from M2SYS and Medibase lead a joint presentation to more than 100 representatives from the healthcare industry on the importance of using fingerprint technology to accurately identify patients.
The presentation highlighted the benefits of fingerprint recognition over other forms of biometrics including the drastic improvement in protecting patient confidentiality. The BASEmetric™ fingerprint system was shown to be highly scalable, fast, and accurate, enabling even larger hospitals and healthcare networks to adopt it without enduring performance shortfalls.
Bio-Plugin™ enables software companies to immediately integrate a complete, seamless fingerprint recognition system, including a high-performance 1:N identification engine. Bio-Plugin™ eliminates the system dependencies, extensive development, and specialized knowledge of biometric complexities inherent to fingerprint technology SDKs. This enables software companies to remain focused on their core product, while establishing a new revenue channel with the biometric component integrated into their systems.
“The extraordinary turnout at the NAHAM show confirmed the level of importance our customer base is placing on accurate identification procedures to secure patient data and maximize revenue generation,” noted Phil Gardener, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for The Medibase Group. “BASEmetric™ is a powerful addition to our solutions portfolio. M2SYS delivered an extremely robust fingerprint recognition system completely integrated into our software in less than two days. As a healthcare technology pioneer, this rapid turnaround allows us to provide immediate value to our customers with the distribution of a proven biometric solution.”
“Through this partnership, M2SYS has further strengthened its foothold as a leading fingerprint recognition system provider to the healthcare industry,” commented Mizan Rahman, CEO and Chief Software Architect of M2SYS. “By using Bio-Plugin™, Medibase eliminated the extensive development cycle required to build and support a viable system, and was able to remain completely focused on their core applications. As the adoption of biometric technology continues to expand in their industry, Medibase can rely on a trusted expert in the field that will continue to provide them with the most cutting edge solutions.”
