Unimed Case Study
Millions of Brazilian citizens access healthcare at Unimed's clinical centers, hospitals and doctors' offices. They use a Unimed identification card to obtain care. Unfortunately, patients share their cards with others causing a significant number of fraudulent claims. Unimed needed an easy-to-use solution that would provide "Proof of presence" for the system users. They chose a biometric solution as a biometric trait cannot be shared. DigitalPersona has offered software and hardware that puts security and compliance at people's fingertips. For end users, DigitalPersona takes the pain out of remembering and typing passwords, as well as carrying a card or key; the company's business solutions help organizations address their loss prevention, security and compliance needs.
