Fulcrum Biometrics provides fingerprint authentication solution for children’s health facility

December 10, 2015 - 

Fulcrum Biometrics announced that Clarity Child Guidance Center, a non-profit mental health treatment centers for children, is now using the Biodentify biometric authentication solution to provide fast, easy and secure system login for their staff.

With a staff of more than 150 healthcare professionals, Clarity required a more simplified and secure method of logging into their new electronic medical records (EMR) system.

Biodentify replaces the previous password system with fingerprint authentication for Windows and EMR login, enabling Clarity to improve its HIPAA compliance and significantly cut overhead costs by eliminating hundreds of hours of employee downtime and help desk support associated with password resets.

Fulcrum Biometrics’ one-touch biometric user identification at login provides Clarity with a faster, more secure and user-friendly solution.

The use of Biodentify also ensures the facility maintains accreditation with The Joint Commission, an organization that reviews and certifies healthcare organizations and programs in the United States.

Designed for Windows-based computing, Biodentify combines advanced biometric technologies, highly encrypted storage and single sign-on (SSO) capabilities, including hardware, a fingerprint recognition algorithm and application software.

Using a single set of secure fingerprint credentials, the SSO framework manages proof-of-identity to third-party applications and websites.

“Clarity does an exceptional job of providing vital services for the health and well-being of our children here in Texas,” said Ken Nosker, president of Fulcrum Biometrics. “We’re pleased to provide products and services that are helping Clarity streamline their workflows while protecting the security of the children in their care.”

Previously reported, Fulcrum Biometrics signed a global distribution deal to sell SMUFS Biometric Solutions (SBS) line of FIPS 201/PIV Bluetooth and wireless fingerprint compact mobile scanners.
