HIPPA LogoWith today’s rigorous HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act) compliance requirements, the times when one could walk into a hospital and find patient records in plain view for all to see, are long gone. Many hospitals and healthcare facilities that are compliant are still looking for ways to enhance the security of their records and increase automation using employee ID badges.

ADVANTIDGE provides a full line of proximity and contactless HIPAA compliant readers to keep organizations on top of their compliance requirements in the digital world. With a combination of hardware and software, these technologies are necessary to meet and enhance HIPAA requirements or improve efficiency without sacrificing security.

The pcProx Sonar is a presence detector that provides an effective, low-cost solution that ensures a workstation is locked (or logged-off) every time the user steps away. When paired with one of the suggested readers, an ideal secure access solution is created. The pcProx Nano, pcProx Plus, pcProx Enroll, 82 Series & Playback all have the ability to integrate with software applications that allow for two-factor authentication and reduced processing time in healthcare environments utilizing Single Sign-On (SSO) solutions.

When it comes to the Healthcare industry, any time that can be saved is critical and with an effective Single Sign-On solution in place, some healthcare facilities have reported saving as much as 25 hours per week by automating login with secure ID badge. SSO gives users instant access to their workstations and applications, eliminating additional password sign-on requests, resulting in time savings and improved workflow.

Benefits of SSO include:
-Reducing password fatigue from the different user name and password combinations
-Reducing time spent re-entering passwords for the same identity
-Reducing IT costs due to lower number of IT help desk calls about passwords

For Healthcare facilities, SSO technology can simplify the HIPAA compliance process. HIPAA compliance is maintained through SSO by enabling a secure network authentication utilizing employee ID badges. By removing the responsibility of recalling and changing multiple passwords, it increases the effectiveness of the authorized security required for HIPAA compliance.
