Biometric Kiosk Developed to Securely Dispense Medications


The medical field has been using biometrics for its patients. Now, however, Medbox Inc. is developing a biometric system to secure prescription medicines.

The health industry has garnered losses amounting to more than $100 million each year because of stolen prescription drugs. To counter that, Medbox Inc. has developed a biometric kiosk that only makes medication available to authorized individuals. In addition, the kiosk records all drug retrievals, thereby creating a method to track individuals who receive the medicine, the dosage, the time the medicine is taken, and a photograph of the event.
