I finally made it to the big time. The wonderful Healthcare IT News posted a link to my facial recognition post in their related links for a biometrics in healthcare article they wrote. I love when other people recognize that work I’ve done could be useful to other people.

I also loved how the article pointed out that while Healthcare IT lags way behind in their overall implementation of technology, they are way ahead of other areas in healthcare’s use of biometrics. I think biometric vendors can thank HIPAA for the widespread use of biometrics in Healthcare.

It was also very nice to see that MD Tech Guide eDigest made EMR and HIPAA their blog of the week.
