Healthcare bio-metrics is used in hospitals for medical staff and patient verification as well as data access control. "The use of bio-metrics in the healthcare industry not only ensures minimization and prevention of fraud, data loss, and resource wastage, abut also enhances the quality, privacy, and safety of hospitals," states a TMR analyst.

The cost of bio-metric systems is not very high and these systems function with utmost accuracy and performance, thereby making it a wise and cost-effective investment. The analyst further states, "The amount of capital invested in the installation and maintenance of healthcare bio-metrics is nothing when compared to the skyrocketing expenses during a time of security breach and medical theft. As a result, the demand for bio-metrics in the healthcare industry has increased immensely, fueling the growth of the global market."

However, issues such as storage of bio-metric templates and the trade-off between security and convenience may pose a threat to the healthcare bio-metrics market.
