BIO-key International, a developer of biometric technology, has announced the integration of its fingerprint solution WEB-key with AcuDose-Rx, a system that authenticates users accessing medical patient medication. AcuDose-Rx is a product of health care IT developer McKesson. The new system from McKesson incorporating BIO-key’s technology is called AcuDose-Rx FastEntry.
Many current systems for securing patient medication rely on passwords which have a history of being forgotten and stolen. The new relationship with BIO-key further enables McKesson to upgrade any other existing product in their line with biometric security or control.
