Healthcare IT News: University of California San Diego researchers have created a new biometric technology they say could help securely identify children and and even newborns with just the wave of a finger.
The tech, funded in part by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, is not yet commercially available, but UC San Diego researchers hope it will be within a year. They say it could be a help in many different scenarios: tracking vaccinations, delivering care during natural disasters, helping prevent human trafficking, resettling refugees and reuniting migrant children with their families.
