The Madrid Hospital Group, which is composed of four hospitals an oncology centre and nine general hospitals, has selected SeMarket and Sun Microsystems to deploy an identity management and Single Sign On system.
The project, which will be implemented by SeMarket, will enable the authentication of both employees and patients of the group by using fingerprint biometrics. A smart card will also be issued to employees that will include their biometric data and a digital certificate.
The Sun Identity Manager technology will help manage the addition and removal of employees and the inclusion of temporary workers at each centre. Both patients and employees will authenticate themselves at the different access points and applications using fingerprint biometrics. This solution will also resolve the problem of duplicating identities.
