Washington D.C.

Washington DC heavily targeted for Verichip marketing -- March 15, 2006

"The two Washington, D.C., residents are among just a handful of Americans who have had the tiny electronic VeriChip inserted since the government approved it two years ago. But the chip is being aggressively marketed by its manufacturer, which is targeting Washington ( D.C.) to be the first metropolitan area with multiple hospitals equipped to read the device, a persuasive factor for Fischer and Hickey. Within weeks, the first hospital is expected to announce plans to start routinely scanning all emergency-room patients ....

Many of the hospitals, including three in the Washington area, have received scanners and started training their emergency-room staffs in their use, he said. Procter declined to name the hospitals until they formally announce their plans.
One area doctor has begun implanting the chips.
"I thought this would be important to offer to many of my patients," said Jonathan Musher, a Chevy Chase, Md., physician the company hired to help
recruit hospitals and assemble a nationwide network of doctors offering the chips. "With this, a quick scan back and forth across their arm could make all the difference in critical life-and-death situations where seconds count."......

As far as I can tell, there are no security measures taken with the chip. It's not a secure chip," said
Richard M. Smith, an Internet and privacy consultant in Boston. "There's nothing to stop someone from accessing the code and cloning the chip" to access records, he said.
Even though the medical information is stored in a protected computer, anyone with a password could obtain the information.

VeriChip to display VeriMed in D.C. for emergency-physicians -- Sept 22, 2005
DELRAY BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 22, 2005--
VeriChip Corporation, a subsidiary of Applied Digital (NASDAQ:ADSX) and the world's premier RFID company for people, announced today its plans to demonstrate the world's first FDA-cleared, human-implantable RFID microchip and its
VeriMed(TM) application at the American College of Emergency Physicians' (ACEP) Scientific Assembly, taking place September 26-29, 2005 in Washington, D.C. At this conference, attended by some 5,000 emergency physicians from across the U.S. and around the world, the VeriMed patient identification system will demonstrate how implantable RFID microchips can provide access to rapid, accurate and secure patient identification, coupled with the patient's own medical information, so crucial in emergency departments today.

Integrating the VeriMed system into the hospital emergency room setting ensures that ER physicians get the critical patient information they need when it matters most," stated Kevin McLaughlin, Chief Executive Officer of VeriChip Corporation. "We're looking forward to demonstrating the product at ACEP and to helping emergency centers everywhere understand how they can reduce treatment delays and medical errors through the use of our FDA-cleared technology

VeriChip to add 200 more dealers and distributors
The agreement also calls for eXI's 200 dealers and distributors in North America to begin offering VeriChip products. VeriChip expects to bring in $8 million-$10 million in revenue this year.

on VeriChip's utility for certain applications; and generating government-based revenue from federal agencies that have needs for VeriChip's loss-proof, tamper-proof identification technology in the medical and security arenas.

"With the recent FDA clearance to market VeriChip for its medical applications, we have initiated significant steps to penetrate the domestic private sector, as demonstrated by our agreement with Henry Schein, Inc. the largest distributor of healthcare products to office-based practitioners in North America. The potential among the armed services, for example, is substantial, as the need for secure identification and access to reliable medical records anywhere in the world is more important than ever before. We look forward to working with these leading firms and the Washington Federal community to make the broad adoption of VeriChip a reality."

Getting Chipped is applicable for any scanner globally -- May 12, 2004

At the Baja Beach Club, Tuesdays are VeriChip implantation days. Stop in and a "nurse" — the club's word — uses a syringe to inject a VeriChip capsule under your skin. There don't seem to be any rules about where on the body it has to be placed. If you think this sounds like something you'd never do, then you're not the kind of person who goes to clubs wearing your bestest nose ring.
Once implanted, you become your own credit card. Need to pay for a drink? Wave your implant near a reader, and you're done. VeriChip has dreams of going global with its "human implantable ID technology" — once implanted, you could wave a body part to pay for a burger at Wendy's, a beer at a baseball game, or whatever.

Digital Angel [ locator ] lands in China...Sherrie Gossett--March 28-2002
The emergence of Digital Angel has met with protests from civil libertarians in the United States who are concerned over potential involuntary applications of injectable tracking chips. But an area of even greater concern may be its use in China. After all, China currently has one of the world's worst human rights records. Over the years, human rights organizations like Amnesty International, Freedom House and the Laogai Research Foundation have documented widespread persecution in China of political dissidents and religious persons. Such persecution routinely includes surveillance and arrest of innocent persons who are then sent to slave labor camps, mental hospitals or "re-education" facilities.
Time will tell if the injectable chips will be used eventually to track the movements of dissidents, in order to round up friends, family members and locate secret meetings. Recent news reports have documented Christian believers using cell-phone codes to arrange secret prayer meetings, and the rural government officials committing protesters to psychiatric facilities where they are "treated."

All Australians could be implanted with microchips for tracking and identification within the next two or three generations, a prominent academic says.
"Microchipping I think will eventually become compulsory in the context of identification within the frame of national security," he said.
Although uberveillance was only in its early phases, Dr [ Michael ] Michael's wife, Katina Michael — a senior lecturer from UOW's School of Information Systems and Technology — said the ability to track and identify any individual was already possible.
"Anyone with a mobile phone can be tracked to 15m now," she said, pointing out that most mobile phone handsets now contained GPS receivers and radio frequency identification (RFID) readers.
"The worst scenario is the absolute loss of human rights," she said.
