Neil Rubenking did a fabulous write-up of the eGo offering for PCMag, and as he notes, eGo turns the human body into the ultimate authentication tool.

Clearly, nothing is as personal as your own physical being. And keeping track of the health of said physical being leads us straight to HIMSS – Healthcare Information Management Systems Society – 2011.

Keep an eye on the blog for more updates from HIMSS 2011. And follow @digitalsecurity for live updates from Orlando.
