FAQ - Does openIMIS support use of Biometrics?

Currently no openIMIS implementation applies the use of Biometric identification cards. The current identification of an individual is done using photos which are stored on the central server (or in form of an offline extract) and can be retrieved through querying by authorized personnel using an individuals unique ID number or corresponding bar code on an individuals card.
