Hand scan gadget allows fast, convenient patient check-ins

Short post today.  Here’s a cool article on hand scans for electronic medical visit check-ins.  It’s a few days old, so I’m sure I’ve been beaten to the punch by my fellow Tweeters and Bloggers, but I have to say a big “Wow!”   Now if anyone can figure out how much it costs, I would be grateful to know.  Surprisingly, Googling it doesn’t turn up the cost anywhere that I can find.  That might be foreboding sign, but I like to hope for pleasant surprises.

  • I saw this hand scanner at HIMSS. It was in the Fujitsu booth (although this was from one of their partners). I liked it a lot. Definitely was an interesting implementation. Plus, I just love anything biometric.

    I want to say when we talked price that it was something like $5000 for the hand scanner. However, there was also a software purchase as well. I could be wrong on this, but that’s what I remember off the top of my head.
