VeriChip Corporation continues to focus on diabetic patients to provide important identification and medical record information
VeriChip Corporation a provider of RFID systems for healthcare and patient-related needs, announced today it added 13 diabetic patients to its VeriMed Patient Identification System network at a Boston Diabetes EXPO sponsored by the American Diabetes Association (ADA).
At the Boston Diabetes EXPO, physicians implanted VeriMed RFID microchips in conference attendees who signed up for the voluntary
procedure. The VeriMed Patient Identification System, which utilizes an
implantable RFID microchip in combination with a handheld RFID scanner and a secure patient database, provides immediate access to important identification and health information for patients who arrive at an emergency department unable to communicate.
Scott R. Silverman, Chairman and CEO of VeriChip, commented,
"We continue to expand our presence at ADA events and focus on individuals with diabetes as we believe they, and other high-risk populations, may benefit greatly from the VeriMed Patient Identification System. Through the Atlanta and Boston Diabetes EXPOs, we have now enrolled 31 more patients in our system. Furthermore, these sign-ups by diabetic individuals underscore the importance of our planned future development efforts to commercialize a glucose-sensing implantable microchip, with our sister company Digital Angel, which was awarded a patent on this breakthrough product."The Diabetes EXPO is a patient-driven tradeshow, including professional speakers and a variety of ADA program/event information, where exhibitors from pharmaceutical and medical device companies display beneficial products for diabetics. The Diabetes EXPO began in 1995 in Phoenix, Arizona, and has grown to 18, metro, major and mid-size cities around the U.S. The next event will be held in Chicago on April 28, 2007.
