RPGSi selects M2SYS fingerprint biometrics software for revolutionary patient identification system

Atlanta 13 January 2009RPGSi Business Solutions, a provider of effective and high quality technology and information systems to Latin America, has integrated Bio-Plugin Appserver fingerprint software, developed by M2SYS Technology, an award-winning fingerprint biometrics research and development firm, into its HealthGest health care software. RPGSi will be distributing the fingerprint recognition solution with M2SYS' M2-S optical fingerprint reader.


HealthGest, a module of the TopSaude strategic e-health information system, supports the main activities of clinics in collaborative working environments and maintains the actions of public and private ambulatory health care units. With the integration of Bio-Plugin Appserver, an enterprise-ready, client/server fingerprint biometrics system that eliminates the development effort associated with a low-level fingerprint SDK, the identification of patients in the hospital will be more safe and efficient.

Luis Fernandes, Partner of RPGSi, commented: "Most developing nations do not have a reliable method of identifying patients that are in need of health care services. Biometrics solves this problem and reduces the health risks to patients from mis-identification. Furthermore, the M2SYS Bio-Plugin fingerprint software has helped us to address the challenge of creating a single Electronic Health Record to identify patients. By the end of this year, we expect to enroll and validate 30 percent of patients within our first community of 100.000 people", he stated.

"Proper identification of patients in developing countries is critical to provide quality health care. The addition of our Bio-Plugin software solution will give RPGSi a strong competitive advantage while providing their customers with the sophisticated identity protection that they require", stated Michael Trader, President of M2SYS Technology. "With this partnership, M2SYS has strengthened its position as a leading provider of fingerprint technology to the health care industry", he added.

M2SYS Technology is a recognized industry expert in fingerprint identity management technology, delivering a wide range of customized, fully functional, turn-key fingerprint software solutions for businesses and consumers. M2SYS Technology was awarded the prestigious Frost and Sullivan Biometric Technology Innovation of the Year award in 2007.

RPGSi was founded in 2001 with a vision to provide its customers with efficient solutions with patterns of high quality, as well as areas of technologies and systems for information. RPGSi's main concern has always been its customers.
