Earlier this year Tokyo-based Fujitsu presented it’s PalmSecure – a vascular pattern recognition system to accurately identify people while they hold their palm just above the cube.

For years, biometric fingerprint scanners have been used, but there are various problems with fingerprint scanners. For, researchers were able to prove that a flat photograph or molded fingertip can easily fool these devices into giving a false approval.

But with Fujitu’s PalmSecure the situation has improved dramatically. The PalmSecure scan requires less than a second, and it captures the unique branching pattern of blood veins and instantly converts key data points into a numerical code that can be compared with other palm scans to identify matches. The miniaturized device can plug into a laptop computer via a USB port, while an alternative version released last year incorporates the palm scanner into a computer mouse to facilitate secure logins.

Carolinas HealthCare System, the nation’s third largest public healthcare provider, began using PalmSecure last year in several major hospitals as part of the nation’s first biometric patient identification system based on vascular recognition technology. Now deployed at eight locations and two urgent care facilities, the identification program has enrolled about 170,000 patients in all. Once patients have registered their unique biometric “vein template,” it can be linked directly to their medical records.

This month Fujitsu announced ValleyCare as the first hospital in California that will use the PalmSecure for it’s patient registration and identification system. The (TM) palm vein authentication technology is part of its new Patient Access Lifetime Match (PALM).
