NHS Foundation Trust orders additional Precise Biometrics Tactivo smart card readers

August 1, 2015 - 

Precise Biometrics has received an additional order for Tactivo smart card readers from an English National Health Service (NHS) Foundation Trust.

The move comes a few months after the English NHS Foundation Trust’s previous order for an undisclosed number of Tactivo smart card readers.

The order will impact Precise Biometrics’ third quarter revenues with 490,000SEK (USD$57,447).

Delivered as part of an integrated solution provided by Precise Biometrics’ partner Isosec Ltd, Tactivo smart card readers are used for secure mobile access to healthcare systems.

By expanding the number of Tactivo smart card readers, the Trust is able to provide more of its staff with fast and secure access to relevant patient data, reporting and information exchange on iPad devices.

Tactivo smart card readers allows healthcare providers to spend more time with patients while ensuring instant access to patient information, which leads to improved care quality and reduced time spent on administration.

“We are pleased to see that this NHS Trust is following up on their previous order from May,” said Håkan Persson, CEO of Precise Biometrics. “This shows their confidence and commitment to Tactivo for convenient and secure mobile access to information systems and resources. The solution increases employee flexibility and efficiency, while ensuring a high level of security by utilizing two-factor authentication.”

The healthcare system is accessed through two-factor authentication process using a smart card, Tactivo, iPad and Isosec’s mobile authentication software (MIA).
