KinderGuardian™ is a national anti-abduction system where hospitals can send a copy of a child patient’s iris data, photograph, and biographic information in the cloud. Any hospital using our RightPatient® iris biometric patient identification system can then search against this system to identify the child. Parents are also offered the option of storing a child’s biometric data on a USB drive. The KinderGuardian™ system is completely optional for parents who want to participate.
At some point in an abducted child’s life they will need medical care. If there is any suspicion that the child has been abducted, a healthcare provider can run a centralized search through KinderGuardian™ to verify the child’s identity and determine whether the child’s record has been flagged. Healthcare is a practical setting to launch this initiative.
