ScriptRx and DigitalPersona Team Up to Secure Emergency Room and Urgent Care Electronic Medical Records

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. and WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- DigitalPersona, Inc., a global provider of authentication and endpoint protection solutions and ScriptRx, a leading provider of touchscreen Electronic Medical Record (EMR) and Discharge Systems for Emergency Rooms and Urgent Care Centers, today announced the integration of U.are.U® fingerprint biometrics from DigitalPersona into the ScriptRx System. Designed for these busy clinical facilities, the biometric kiosk solutions provide physicians with an intuitive, easy-to-use interface to simplify common tasks. The resulting system allows for secure charting of medical records, accurate issuance of discharge instructions, authenticated prescription writing, an archived medication reconciliation record and more.

"As a major medical facility serving South Florida, we need to be able to accurately and quickly provide service," said Dr. Abid Chaudhry, medical director at Kendall Regional Medical Center, a six-time winner of the Thomson Reuters 100 Top Hospitals® National Benchmark award. "Our ScriptRx kiosks with U.are.U fingerprint readers from DigitalPersona streamline important functions for our doctors and nurses while adding secure one-touch access to applications and information."

The ScriptRx System gives IT administrators the flexibility to deliver the application via a variety of hardware platforms or use ScriptRx's hosted option. The solution was designed with the particular needs of touchscreen applications in mind: simplicity, clarity and speed. Its Internet-based technology provides multiple modes and permissions for users, data-sharing configurability and both quality and operational reporting, encompassing all clinical encounters. Seamless kiosk data replication allows doctors to access the same information from multiple locations, regardless of where the system resides.

"Kiosk systems with biometric authentication provide fast, secure access to critical medical information," said Dr. Tim Coffield, president and CEO of ScriptRx. "This is often needed in walk-in ambulatory settings, such as emergency rooms and urgent care facilities, that require accurate and timely response to chaotic medical situations. With the ScriptRx system, doctors can quickly and securely update EMRs, prescribe medications and efficiently discharge patients."

DigitalPersona's U.are.U fingerprint authentication solutions offer a combination of security, convenience and ease-of-use. By integrating U.are.U fingerprint readers from DigitalPersona into the ScriptRx solution, doctors no longer need to remember multiple passwords across many different applications. This allows for faster, more accurate patient care. The combined solution also provides a greater level of control in implementing policies that allow only authorized personnel access to patient records in compliance with the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

"In urgent care where every second counts, fast response times are critical," said Jim Fulton, vice president of marketing, DigitalPersona, Inc. "Fingerprint biometrics simplify user authentication for patient record retrieval, giving doctors more time to focus on their patients' health."
