Imprivata : 16 May, 2016  (New Product)
Palm vein biometrics are now being used within the healthcare industry to confirm patient identity and reduce administration time for health workers
Biometric patient identification system

Imprivata has launched its latest range of security products for the healthcare market. For the first time in the UK, Imprivata PatientSecure, a patient identity product that uses palm vein biometrics is now available. Imprivata OneSign Single Sign On (SSO) and Authentication Management is used by the majority of NHS hospitals, Imprivata OneSign Secure Walk Away, and Imprivata Confirm ID for Clinical Workflows and Medical Devices. The products all aim to provide a better user experience for clinicians, nurses and care workers, freeing up more time for their patients, while helping to reduce clinical risk through better data security.

Imprivata PatientSecure is a positive patient identification product that matches the patient to the correct medical records at any location within the NHS network. Imprivata PatientSecure provides increased safety and security and also supports a range of operational benefits including improved admission times, streamlined delivery of medication and prescriptions, and assured patient acceptance for particular actions, tasks or treatments. Imprivata PatientSecure makes the identification process easier and quicker for both patient and care worker and is ideal for identity confirmation for comatose patients and patients with language and communication issues.

“Imprivata PatientSecure has already identified more than 22 million patients in more than 350 hospitals and associated clinics in the United States,” said David Wiener, General Manager of Imprivata PatientSecure. “Hospitals using the solution report positive feedback from patients and improvements in patient registrations. As well as streamlining administrative processes, Imprivata PatientSecure ensures that the right patient is in the right place at the right time and receives the right treatment.”

Imprivata OneSign SSO enables care providers to securely access clinical and administrative applications without the need to type different usernames and passwords, while still maintaining security best practice. This streamlines clinical workflows, giving care providers more time to focus on their patients.

Imprivata OneSign Secure Walk Away locks workstations when care providers leave and re-authenticates them when they return using 3D facial recognition technology. This eliminates the need to manually lock sessions and only unlocks the desktop when the previously authenticated user returns to the workstation.

Imprivata Confirm ID for Clinical Workflows streamlines authentication for clinical transactions (such as ordering medication, drug disposal and blood administration), by replacing passwords with fast, convenient methods such as the tap of a proximity badge or swipe of a fingerprint. The solution integrates with leading clinical applications giving users a seamless authentication experience, which generates a robust audit trail for all transactions with patient health information. It will also help hospitals to achieve the NHS 2020 Vision for a Paper Free Environment.

Imprivata Confirm ID for Medical Devices provides fast, secure authentication for accessing and transacting with patient information on medical devices. This enables hospitals to take advantage of new technologies like the Internet of Things while considerably reducing the risk of malware, cyber attacks, or loss of patient data.
