ImageWare Systems Inc. and Vista LifeSciences announced the formation of a partnership to offer clients secure biometric identification for electronic medical records.
Vista LifeSciences’ products are used by the U.S. Department of Defense. Vista LifeSciences is the provider of automated neurocognitive assessment technology to the United States Department of Defense that has been used to create more than 400,000 neurocognitive assessments.
The partnership will initially focus on integrating ImageWare’s biometric solution into Vista LifeSciences’ STAT Medical Jacket, the electronic medical record used to hold all of a patient’s medical history in a Web-based or mobile environment. The integration of ImageWare’s biometric solution should provide added security for authorized medical professionals accessing patient records and ensure that patient medical records correspond to the correct patient.
The addition of biometrics aims to increase the efficiency and security of electronic medical records in a hospital, clinical and emergency environments and bring professional medical record management to medical triage environments.
