Re: Biometric systems

Problem is, sometimes the requirements CLASH. For example, as you say, the Emergency Room. Problem here is that, due to the environment, it's a pretty open area with lots of people roaming around. This makes it a prime target for infiltrating in the midst of the chaos. BUT emergency personnel ALSO need timely access to patient information in order to keep triage and treatments moving quickly because, well, you're dealing with emergencies here.
