Biometrics in healthcare authentication
BIO-key International provides biometric software and hardware solutions, secure and convenient for strong user authentication. The company will showcase its technology at HIMSS 2017 through strategic alliance partners, including Allscripts, Aventura, Caradigm, Epic, HealthCast Solutions, HID Global, IBM, Microsoft, Oracle and more. BIO-key’s ID Director software delivers a layer of non-disruptive biometric authentication for hospitals that utilize Epic, Allscripts, and other EHR platforms. BIO-key’s biometric software platform can be added to EHR, single sign-on, and workflow solutions to complement existing authentication methods by increasing security, while enhancing the convenience of a repetitive process. By reducing the time and tedium of the sign-in process, BIO-key provides additional time for staff to provide patient care.
Mike DePasquale, chairman and CEO of BIO-key said: “The market is starting to understand the value of biometric technology, as use cases continue to increase.”
