Imprivata to exhibit biometric solutions for healthcare providers

October 8, 2015 - 

Imprivata announced it will showcase its positive patient identification, two-factor authentication and clinical communication solutions at the Cerner Health Conference, to be held on October 11-14 in Kansas City.

At the conference, Imprivata will demonstrate its positive patient identification solution PatientSecure, which uses palm vein biometrics to create a one-to-one link between patients and their respective medical record.

Imprivata PatientSecure addresses patient misidentification by improving patient safety and satisfaction, preventing duplicate medical records and overlays, driving revenue cycle efficiency, and protecting healthcare providers against identity theft and insurance fraud.

The company will also showcase its authentication solutions, including Hands Free Authentication, a proximity-based authentication technology that delivers exceptional speed, convenience, and security for providers.

Hands Free Authentication wirelessly retrieves and verifies a one-time password (OTP) from a healthcare provider’s mobile device, eliminating the need for passwords or token codes.

The authentication solution is integrated with Imprivata Confirm ID, enabling a seamless e-prescribing workflow to increase overall satisfaction, efficiency and adoption of EPCS.

Several Imprivata customers will also deliver presentations at the conference about their use of Imprivata solutions to meet the DEA requirements for EPCS while ensuring a fast, convenient workflow for their providers.

The Cerner Health Conference will feature presentations from several Imprivata customers. Laura Josephson, RN, and Jennifer Zabala, RN, of New York’s WCA Hospital will deliver a presentation titled “Improve Provider Efficiency and Patient Safety with e-Prescribing of Controlled Substances”.

Additionally, Marie Kozel and Michele Higgins of Nebraska’s Methodist Health System along with Brigitte Zahn and Gerald Kelly of New York’s Stony Brook University Medicine will deliver a panel discussion titled “EPCS – The How To Guide for a Successful Implementation”.

Both presentations by Imprivata customers will be held on October 13.

Previously reported, Imprivata announced that WCA Hospital in Jamestown, New York is using Imprivata Confirm ID, an e-prescribing tool with fingerprint identification support, to enable fast, secure EPCS.
