High-Acuity Care Case Study
Picis is a global provider of innovative information solutions that enable rapid and sustained delivery of clinical, financial and operational results in acute care areas of the hospital. In emergency departments, doctors, nurses and staff must access numerous mission-critical applications with different usernames and passwords. When a patient's life is at stake, they do not have time to call the help desk to retrieve forgotten passwords. Picis used the DigitalPersona One Touch for Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) to biometrically enable ED PulseCheck so that users only need to place their finger on a DigitalPersona U.are.U Fingerprint Reader instead of remembering and typing a password. Provides certainty by linking users to their actions. Only authorized medical staffs have access to confidential patient data. The solution results in ease of use and simple administration.
