More NGOs have paid attention on Public Health Problems, especially for the disease that death rate keep increasing.
Recently Intent has partnered with the University of Kentucky in a $15 million federal grant program to help one of Kentucky county particularly hard-hit by the potentially deadly virus. Biometric device has been used to manage the dispensation of hepatitis C medications for 900 individuals to track patient adherence, as a 12-week regimen is required to cure patients of the virus.
The medications to be used have been donated by biopharmaceutical company Gilead Sciences, at an estimated value of $20 million.
By providing medication through biometric monitoring, the program enables physicians, therapists, and caregivers to monitor precisely how regularly patients are taking their medications, as well as any attempts to abuse, misuse, or divert the drugs provided.
Except this case in USA, more are Africa and Asia countries, e.g.fhi360 Nigeria support pregnant woman regular checking and allowance with biometric enrollment and verification; Pakistan Child vaccine registration with biometrics etc..
HFSecurity is 14years biometric manufacturer in China, providing full range biometric hardware: USB/Bluetooth fingerprint scanner, Android/Windows fingerprint tablet for single/dual/flap fingers.
We are happy to see the use of biometric system simplify the monitoring process and efficient. We believe the implement of biometrics make life more easier, secure and happier.
