VeriChip Reports That AMA Recommends Implantable RFID Devices to Improve the Safety and Efficiency of Patient Care


(Wireless News Via Thomson Dialog NewsEdge)
VeriChip Corp., a provider of RFID systems for healthcare and
patient-related needs, announced the American Medical Association's
(AMA) Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs has adopted a policy
stating that implantable radio frequency identification (RFID) devices
may help to identify patients, thereby improving the safety and
efficiency of patient care, and may be used to enable secure access to
patient clinical information.

VeriChip has the only FDA-cleared RFID implantable microchip for
patient identification and health information purposes. VeriChip
anticipates that the AMA's recommendation will enhance the Company's
marketing efforts by accelerating the adoption by hospitals of the
VeriMed Patient Identification System and increasing the profile of the
VeriChip among the medical community.

VeriChip is majority-owned by Applied Digital Solutions, which also
owns a majority position in Digital Angel Corp.
