VeriTrace tracking solution for New Jersey Counties

VeriChip : 22 April, 2009  (Application Story)
Implantable RFID tracking system for use in disaster relief and emergency management purchased by two New Jersey counties
VeriChip, a provider of radio frequency identification (RFID) systems for healthcare and patient-related needs, has sold the VeriTrace system for disaster relief and emergency management needs to Atlantic and Mercer counties in New Jersey.

Marc Poulshock, Vice President of VeriChip's Implantable and Emergency Management divisions, said, "These recent orders reflect the continued demand for the VeriTrace system by emergency management personnel and medical examiners throughout the country. Since the federal government continues to support the necessity to be prepared for potential natural catastrophes or acts of terrorism, we will maintain our ongoing discussions with these organizations in the US and internationally."

The VeriTrace system was created in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina where it proved helpful in identifying, tracking and accounting for the remains of victims from the hurricane. VeriTrace was used by the Federal Disaster Mortuary Operational Response Team (DMORT) during Hurricane Katrina recovery operations.

VeriTrace is designed to assist state and federal agencies in the management of emergency situations and disaster recovery using implantable RFID technology. The VeriTrace system includes a unique implantable RFID microchip, a VeriTrace Bluetooth handheld reader, a customized Ricoh 500SE Digital Camera capable of receiving both RFID scanned data and GPS data wirelessly, and a Web-enabled database for gathering and storing information and images captured during emergency response operations. This database ensures the precise collection, storage and inventory of all data and images related to remains and the associated evidentiary items. This also allows the recreation of an accurate and complete reconstruction of a disaster setting, crime scene or similar setting where recreation is necessary.
