Healthcare

Healthcare organizations and hospitals are focused on patient safety, privacy and cost reduction. However, in remaining to be competitive, nowadays hospitals and healthcare organizations are facing intense regulatory and operational pressures. Furthermore, violence, theft and vandalism are putting hospitals and healthcare facilities at risks, and with potential impact on patients, staff, medicines and other expensive medical equipment. In coping with all these issues, we help healthcare organizations to manage patient information, while safeguarding privacy rights.

There are physical security concerns such as specific entry points (i.e. doorways, Intensive Care Unit, surgery room, medical equipment rooms, etc.) as well as essential security necessities.

We pledge to increase/enhance security in your daily activities, in the following areas,

  • Biometrics Access to Secure Areas
  • Remote Network Access processing using Biometrics Recognition.

Biometric Access to Secure Areas

Matcess identification can be a secure, convenient, and cost-effective alternative to passwords, badges, swipe cards and PINs. The biometric reader mounts on a wall near your secure door. These biometric scanners offer various levels of authorization for an individual. This authorization includes a scheduling mechanism for allowing access for individuals based on the time of day.

Unlike systems that require proprietary networking, Matcess uses your existing local area network

  • A truly secure method of securing electronic transactions - Biometric authorization takes place at the host website's secure environment - not at the local machine where password and PINS can be entered by anyone.
  • Easy to install for end users - By installing a small Internet Explorer plug-in and the software driver for the biometric reader, an end user is now ready to go. An existing web cam or a biometric reader plugs into an available USB Port on the end user's computer.
  • Fosters goodwill by providing your clients, visitors and employees with the electronic security and "peace of mind" because you show the utmost importance for their secure transactions.
  • Computer and network security is an important aspect in every sector, as data is a crucial factor of daily life. Security Passwords, PINs, security codes, user names are usually the first line of defense against cyber attacks in the real world, but Biometric Security is the ultimate.

Any unauthorized access or changes of these data could result in multi million dollar damages, lawsuits or bad press and image loss! In essence, we should protect the healthcare organizations system from unauthorized access, and know with certainty, who did what, and when within system. Hence, by implementing X-Access will not only comply with mandatory regulations, but simultaneously protect the healthcare organizations from preventable damages, with better Return on investment.

Remote Network Access for Internet/Intranets using Biometric Recognition.

d'face enables hospitals and healthcare organizations to have a secure Internet and Intranet operations, all at no cost if you are using face recognition as most of the computer users use webcam as standard equipment.

  • Access data based on biometrics, by department, branch, unit etc.
  • Will ensure that the person, who is accessing the data from your server, is part of your organization, vendor, patient who is authorized by you.
  • Better Intranet transactions among inter/intra departmental transactions, and hence have better and secure communications at a faster pace.
  • Better ROI with secured environment.

d'face will secure identities before data is transferred to and from an Intranet, Internet or other type of remote location. Our information security offerings help to ensure that only authorized individuals have access to sensitive information, providing more efficient and protected systems that improve patient confidentiality for hospitals, managed care organizations and physician practice groups. These typical risk factors include theft, destruction, interception and alteration of patient information. The hospital administrators have to recognize the need for greater control over data input, processing and output to minimize the risk factors. In the computer jargon “Garbage in is Garbage out” (GIGO).

Because security is weakest at the remote computer, d'face work with a web browser at the server level. d'Face captures the user's face/fingerprint on a lightweight face/fingerprint reader at the local machine and then translates and encrypts the biometric data to be sent to the server for authentication. The authentication takes place at the website's host environment versus the local machine - behind appropriate security and firewall technology. No record of PINs, passwords, or biometric data resides in cache memory on the local computer.
