Quotes from the news wire:
Getting patient application right is absolutely essential, at Simprints we do three things to get that right. First we don't work with patient medical records, so we never store or hold access to patient data. That's all held by the organizations we work with. Second we never transmit raw fingerprint images, so we actually do the extraction process where we take a fingerprint image and turn it into a template. We do that on the scanner itself, meaning that the fingerprint image never leaves the scanner. Third we use the same level of encryptions that we use in online banking or financial transactions that secure any data that passes between the phone and the server.
