Orlando, FL (PRWEB) September 22, 2010
Zvetco Biometrics, a leader in fingerprint identity and authentication solutions, is pleased to announce that its Verifi™ brand of Fingerprint Reader has been selected by Caring Professionals for use in its home healthcare business. Caring Professionals has been providing exceptional home health care services to patients living in the New York Metropolitan area for over 15 years and employs over 2,500 home health aides. Working closely with other health organizations, doctors, nurses, and family members of their patients, they provide the best possible home care. As a forward looking company, they have installed Zvetco biometric readers and Authasas client - server authentication software to biometrically control access to all patient records. With this upgrade Caring Professionals will meet or exceed compliance standards detailed in the HITECH (Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act) as part of HIPAA. This enables them to qualify for several government grants, which could offset the acquisition costs while completely eliminating password related help desk costs.
Now, Caring Professionals operators can use the Zvetco Verifi™ biometric readers for safe and easy fingerprint login instead of user name and password. By using the Verifi™ readers, problems associated with lost, shared or stolen passwords are eliminated, and the user experience is improved. The rugged, elegant design of the Verifi™ fingerprint reader is a perfectly suitable for health care practice, as where necessary, waterproof versions can be directly sprayed with disinfectants without any ill effects.
“We chose the Zvetco biometric reader for its ability to hold up under the most demanding conditions, as well as its accuracy and ease of integration,” said Solomon Azose, Director of Operations for Caring Professionals. “Working with Zvetco has been a pleasure.”
Zavi Cohen, CEO for Zvetco Biometrics stated, “We have always focused our efforts on developing durable, high performance fingerprint readers that are easy for organizations to integrate. This indeed was the case here, with record fast implementation time. Acceptance of the Verifi™ reader by Caring Professionals is yet another example of our leadership in the health care vertical.”
