ATLANTA, Ga. /Publishers Newswire/ — M2SYS Technology, an award-winning biometric technology research and development firm, has finalized an agreement to provide Bwindi Community Hospital with their leading-edge fingerprint identification system as part of a donation effort to support global causes. Bwindi Community Hospital provides healthcare to some of the poorest people in the world, affected with devastating diseases such as malaria, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, and diarrhea, which are considered the biggest killers in their region. The hospital is located on the edge of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in south-west Uganda.
M2SYS enabled Bwindi Hospital to immediately integrate and implement a seamless biometrics system, including a high-performance fingerprint identification engine. Previously, Bwindi Community Hospital used manual procedures to identify patients, allowing for severe health hazard individuals to be misidentified and opened the facility up to fraudulent activities. Hospital goers will now be identified by scanning their fingerprint, after scanning their medical records and history will be automatically displayed.
“Bio-Plugin(TM) was rated high by customers who previously used the technology. When contacted, M2SYS generously decided to donate the product free-of-charge as this technology was too expensive for us to implement,” commented Wence Benda, IT Technician of Bwindi Community Hospital. “This technology certainly saves us a lot of time and energy with patients, and ensures smooth operation in the facility.”
“We are proud to help out Bwindi Hospital, as they deserved embracing this new technology into their hospital to strengthen their activities with patients and the facility itself,” Michael Trader, President of M2SYS stated. “M2SYS believes that now Bwindi can utilize this technology and move further ahead towards helping people get the best medication, eliminating misidentifications,” he commented.
