How Hospitals & Healthcare Organisations are using Biometrics…

Security and Authentication

Doctors, Physicians, nurses do not have time to go through lengthy login processes, yet access must be secure due to strict patient confidentiality regulations.  DigitalPersona Fingerprint authentication has streamlined access to medical records.


The single sign-on capabilities of DigitalPersona endpoint protection solutions eliminate the lengthy log in process of typing usernames and passwords when accessing medical records. DigitalPersona Pro provides the IT department with a single control point to centrally manage and enforce authentication and access policies throughout their network.

How it works…

Non-obtrusive or ‘Big Brother’
Contrary to popular belief, when registering an individual with the fingerprint reader, it does NOT take a scan of their fingerprint. It looks for specific points within the fingerprint and then just saves the coordinates of these points. This data is immediately encrypted and will only make sense to the fingerprint software. So you can be rest assured that your fingerprint hasn’t literally been taken and stored.

Biometric Applications in Healthcare

Hospitals and Healthcare institutions are saving time and money by integrating Biometrics into applications for identification and authentication purposes:

  • Productivity – Allows physicians to see more patients due to efficient secure access of records
  • Administrative Control – Network administrator creates password policies for user groups
  • Compliance – Provides audit trails to assist with NHS/Healthcare regulations
  • Central Management – Strong security policies are enforced from a single point
