Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR UTILIZING BIOMETRICS IN MEDICAL APPLICATIONS
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ POUR L'UTILISATION DE LA BIOMÉTRIE DANS DES APPLICATIONS MÉDICALES
Abstract:
(EN) In the present invention, the user will sign into a system, utilizing a biometrics authentication (35) or identification procedure. Once authentication and identification takes place, local (128) regional (250), and centralized medical databases can be automatically queried using the identification-specific biometric signature. All data intrinsic to the medical procedure or examination being performed will be automatically tagged and downloaded into that specific patient's electronic medical database. At the same time, that patient's medical database is queried to provide all historical data relevant to the medical examination or procedure being performed to assist with planning, protocol, and analysis of the data being collected. The biometrics authentication can be performed at patient intake, at an imaging device (230), at a pharmacy, or in the operating room, to ensure that the personnel and the patient are correctly identified before any procedure is performed or drug administered.
(FR) Selon la présente invention, l'utilisateur va se connecter à un système, en utilisant une procédure d'authentification ou d'identification par biométrie. Après authentification et identification, des bases de données médicales locales, régionales et centralisées peuvent être automatiquement interrogées à l'aide de la signature biométrique spécifique à l'identification. Toutes les données intrinsèques à la procédure ou l'examen médical en cours seront étiquetées et téléchargées automatiquement dans la base de données médicales électronique de ce patient spécifique. En même temps, la base de données médicales du patient est interrogée pour obtenir toutes les données historiques importantes pour l'examen médical ou la procédure en cours pour faciliter la planification, le protocole, et l'analyse des données en cours de collecte. L'authentification biométrique peut être réalisée lors de la prise en charge du patient, au niveau d'un dispositif d'imagerie, dans une pharmacie, ou bien dans la salle d'opération, pour s'assurer que le personnel et le patient sont correctement identifiés avant de lancer toute procédure ou d'administrer un médicament quelconque.
