In reading the press release and web site the patent appears to include multi platforms for security for anything from biometrics, a card, a PDA cell phone and a few other software configurations. With all the issues we read about currently with security breaches, the solution field is bound to become pretty crowded quickly I am guessing too and we could start seeing full on security partners with EHR systems above and beyond what is already built into the medical records system.
