Patient security including health records, administration of medication and access control takes precedence over anything else in the healthcare sector. Biometric identification streamlines security and drives efficiency in the identification, record keeping and retrieval of patient records. Physicians, facility staff and patients alike are required to authenticate their identity with biometric sensors before patient records can be accessed.

Biometric identification replaces conventional wristbands or barcodes to administer medication and prevents the filing of fraudulent healthcare claims since the authentication process requires the patient’s physical presence. Implementing biometric identification also extends to access control within hospitals, laboratories, server rooms and even workstations and medical devices providing access to only authenticated users.

Key Takeaways:

  • Manage access to health records
  • Administer medication and secure healthcare claims
  • Restrict access to buildings and equipment.
