Imprivata pays $19M for biometrics firm HT Systems

Technology that identifies health care patients by reading the veins in the palm of their hands has paid off big for a Tampa biometrics company.

HT Systems of Tampa was acquired by Imprivata (NYSE: IMPR), a Lexington, Mass.-based firm, for $19 million in cash, although the deal value could rise as high as $26 million, based on achieving sales targets and retention over the next two years, a statement said.
