BIO-key(R) International, Inc. Partners Highlight Fingerprint Biometric 
Technology Solutions for Healthcare at HIMSS 
Multiple Partners Presenting BIO-key's Fingerprint Biometric
Authentication Solution for EHR & EPCS 
WALL, NJ -- (Marketwire) -- 03/04/13 --   BIO-key International, Inc.
(OTCQB: BKYI), a global leader in fingerprint biometric
identification solutions, advanced mobile credentialing and identity
verification technologies, today reported that the company will be
attending the Health Information and Management Systems Society
(HIMSS) annual meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana, March 3rd - 7th
supporting our partners as they present BIO-key technology to
attendees at the HIMSS conference. 
BIO-key will have a strong presence at HIMSS 2013, as healthcare
partners such as Allscripts, Epic, IBM, CA Technologies, Caradigm,
Indigo Identyware and Healthcast attending the event offer BIO-key
solutions.  
Company partners will be offering demonstrations of integrated
solutions for secure, compliant two-factor authentication. BIO-key
customer McKesson will also be in attendance at HIMSS. Our
fingerprint biometric technology is embedded within their
AcuDoseRx(R) automated medication dispensing cabinets. 
BIO-key's fingerprint biometric technology offers strong
authentication in addition to optimum convenience enabling healthcare
providers to greatly reduce or eliminate the use of passwords, cards
and tokens and increase the amount of time caring for patients. The
company's software achieved top scores for speed and accuracy in the
most recent National Institute for Standards of Technology (NIST)
biometric evaluation. NIST sets the standards for the DEA
ePrescription compliance guidelines. 
"The HIMSS conference allows BIO-key and our healthcare partners to
co-present innovative solutions for EHR systems to the CEO's and
CIO's from leading hospitals and clinics," stated Mike DePasquale,
CEO, BIO-key. "The provider's frustration with passwords along with
the organizations requirement to meet strict ePrescription compliance
guidelines is motivating healthcare executives to educate themselves
about the benefits of integrating BIO-key technology."
