Security is an ever-present concern in today’s world. Increasingly, we are seeing how biometric
authentication, such as fingerprint identification, facial recognition, or DNA, is being used to enhance security systems.
Thanks to the prevalence of smartphones with touchscreens and high-definition cameras, it’s easier than ever before to implement these additional security protocols. The general public is embracing the technology as an easy way to prevent unauthorized access to accounts. In fact, 52% of consumers want banks to add fingerprint scans to banking apps.
But biometric technology goes far beyond fingerprints and facial recognition. Currently, there is advanced research being done about new and exciting ways to confirm identity. From analysis of fingernails, earlobes, and keystroke patterns, there are endless methods that are currently being explored, and each biometric has benefits and drawbacks. Continue reading →
Do you remember the first time you saw biometric technology? Was it in an early “Star Trek” episode or maybe in “2001: A Space Odyssey?” Have you noticed the biometrics used in recent movies like “Dredd,” “District 9,” or “Ex Machina?”
Biometrics have long been used in science fiction movies to portray a futuristic world of advanced technology. From retina scans to voice identification and facial recognition, we’ve seen these technologies on the big screen for more than 50 years.

The applications of Automated Fingerprint Identification Systems (AFIS) are increasingly being adopted by countries all around the globe. Biometric AFIS solutions have proven to be a much more secure and accurate tool to address the problems that traditional forms of identification present.
With a biometric AFIS system in place, government agencies such as border control, election commissions, and law enforcement can ensure accurate identification through unique biometric characteristics.
Employers all over the world are constantly seeking software solutions which can eliminate employee time theft to increase payroll savings, boost productivity, and create more accountability. Employee time theft costs U.S. companies alone billions of dollars each year simply because a proper workforce management system is not in place.
A biometric time clock is a viable solution to eliminate time theft and improve workforce management. The following Infographic demonstrates why biometric time clock deployments are increasing and what benefits employers can expect to see post implementation.
Since the launch of biometric in iPhone, many of us believes that it has become a mainstream identification solution. Since then a lots of innovation has taken place to make this cutting edge technology even more secured and convenient. More and more devices and platforms have adopted the technology across multiple sectors, from access control to airport security. The penetration of biometric identification technology for both business and personal use is accelerating the push into our everyday life. Continue reading →
Our latest healthcare infographic examines the effect that duplicate medical records and overlays have on patient safety.
Most people that work with data in and around the healthcare industry are well aware of the negative impact that duplicate medical records and overlays can have on patient safety and the cost of care. Health information management (HIM) professionals are constantly monitoring and rectifying duplicate medical records and overlays because they pose an imminent danger when treating patients with misinformation and can cause a delay in treatment or tests to be repeated.
Even though the subject of duplicate medical records and overlays is well known within the industry, few patients know or understand the devastating impact that can result in their creation, what additional costs they add to care, and what types of technologies (both old and new) and currently used by healthcare facilities to prevent their creation. With that in mind, we assembled an Infographic that outlines the origins, effects, and costs that duplicate medical records and overlays place on the healthcare industry, plus a detailed overview of patient data-matching technologies that facilities use to identify and avert these detriments to quality patient care including a study of algorithms, smart cards, and biometrics for patient identification.
Please take a moment to read through our healthcare Infographic on the effect of duplicate medical records and overlays in healthcare and share it with a friend who may need to know more about this topic. We also offer the chance for you to copy and paste the code at the bottom of the Infographic and embed it on your site (just click on the healthcare Infographic and scroll down to the bottom).
