It appears having a “chip” implant is perhaps not as popular as one might have thought as least on the consumer medical records side.  Stanley, the tools folks, have purchased one portion of the business , Xmark which makes RFID chips for a number of purposes from tracking people to medical equipment.  The Veri-Med portion of the business is still looking for a buyer and there are only a few individuals with the implant that carries all their health information, but a special scanner is needed to read the chips as well.  BD 

Xmark sells radio frequency identification technology to tag and track newborns, adults prone to wandering and medical equipment. The Stanley Works is a major manufacturer of tools and security products.
