Hello all, 

This is great.  I am also in the process of running a health information system at a hospital and would be interested in this kind of solution to run with my HIS which is built using the Odoo OpenERP.  

Please keep me posted on this development.  I am new to python programming but hope to be of help to the community in a more tangible way soon.

I made a post a few weeks back about integrating Arduino and OpenERP.

I've taken an Arduino mega plus a small SBC called a Pcduino (runs Ubuntu) and connected to a fingerprint sensor. You register your fingerprint and associate to an ID in the hr module for that employee.

A python script on the Pcduino connects to OpenERP via xmlrpc and logs the user in or out and displays a message in the GUI welcoming the employee.

My plan is to open source this but if I can get a handful of people who want one I can get some custom cases built so it's nicely packaged. If someone can help rewrite the Arduino fingerprint library for the Pcduino we can ditch the Arduino thus simplifying the design.

I'll put together a video of it working in the next day or two.
