M2SYS launches biometric system to fight child abduction

 

M2SYS Healthcare Solutions — a subsidiary of M2SYS — has announced the launch of a new biometric anti child abduction system called KinderGuardian.

According to the company, If an enrolled child is abducted, their KinderGuardian™ record can be flagged. Since an abducted child will need medical care at some point, a healthcare provider using RightPatient™ can run a centralized search against KinderGuardian™ to instantly determine if they are the victim of kidnapping.

In addition, says M2SYS, the system works well in tandem with its RightPatient iris biometric patient identification system.

“The fight to stop child abduction and locate the missing is often a confluence of several different entities working together to leverage each other’s resources,” said Michael Trader, president of M2SYS Technology. “Knowing that we are providing a service to hospitals that helps ensure 100% patient identification accuracy encouraged us to develop KinderGuardian so that healthcare facilities can use the system in the fight to stop this terrible problem. Healthcare is a practical setting to launch this initiative, and we are committed to the cause of helping to stop child abduction by demonstrating the utility and resourcefulness of our RightPatient patient identification system.”

Reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, M2SYS Healthcare Solutions recently deployed its RightPatient iris biometrics patient identification system at the Martin Health System in Stuart, Florida.

According to a recently published research report, the global healthcare biometrics market is set to reach $5.9 billion by 2019, growing at a CAGR of 25.9%. Growing security concerns with healthcare facilities and medical insurance have so far driven the growth of this market.
