Here's the correct link for the Boston tracking experiment article:

As you can see, it is from November of last year, and not related to H1N1 at all -- it was for seasonal flu. The monitoring system was also originally purchased for tracking major disasters.

when Boston bought the monitoring system from a Milwaukee company in 2006, emergency authorities had a far different use in mind: tracking people injured in big fires, plane crashes, or other disasters.

The resulting trove of data could be used to figure out why some patients had to wait longer than others to be vaccinated. "When all is said and done," said Jun Davantes, director of product management at EMSystems, the company that makes the technology, "Boston will be able to identify where there are certain bottlenecks in the process and hopefully improve it the next time around."
