Short post today.  Here’s a cool article on hand scans for electronic medical visit check-ins.  It’s a few days old, so I’m sure I’ve been beaten to the punch by my fellow Tweeters and Bloggers, but I have to say a big “Wow!”   Now if anyone can figure out how much it costs, I would be grateful to know.  Surprisingly, Googling it doesn’t turn up the cost anywhere that I can find.  That might be foreboding sign, but I like to hope for pleasant surprises.
