RX Safes releases biometrics-secured portable electronic health record device
Biometric medical security solutions provider Rx Safes announced the availability of its portable electronic health record (EHR) device called the Rx SafeEHR.
The Rx SafeEHR is a HIPAA compliant, fingerprint-secured portable storage device that allows for the secure storage and transmission of sensitive patient information between healthcare systems, providers and patients.
The information on the device can only be accessed by the patient or persons authorized by the patient, using RX Safes’ biometric authentication platform and then downloaded directly to another healthcare professional’s computer. The requirement of a patient’s fingerprint assures both the patient and the physician that there is proper authorization to access the health record, complying with the mandates of the Health Information Privacy and Portability Act (HIPPA).
“There is a huge data gap between healthcare services such as emergency room visits and the follow up care that a patient receives with specialists or family physicians. The Rx SafeEHR has been designed to directly address these issues and allow patients the ability to maintain a secure and accurate mobile health record that can be shared only upon their authorization,” commented Lorraine Yarde, Rx Safes’ Chief Executive Officer.
Rx SafeEHR is a professional product intended to be issued by healthcare systems to their patients and can be integrated within any Healthcare IT software environment.
Earlier this week, Rx Safes announced that it is expanding its sales and marketing team and has appointed William V. Koch as chief sales and marketing officer and Faruk Okcetin as vice president of professional sales.
