Total Healthcare Biometrics Market—Market Trends
Consolidation in the industry is expected to continue, with major companies taking over small companies in order to grow business and smaller companies looking for stable partners in order to survive in the competitive market. Besides these mergers and acquisitions, vendors have realized the significance of strategic partnerships with global participants as evidenced by the following developments:
- The ISO (International Standards Organization) and IEC (International Electro Technical Commission) put out a new standard to ensure security of personal and sensitive biometric data processed online.
- In February of 2011, Lumidigm and Imprivata partnered to deliver an integrated solution for healthcare clinicians to provide reliable and quick access to EMR applications even while wearing surgical gloves. Lumidigm also partnered with Verimetrics to deliver a leading biometric single sign-on solution for
applications such as hospitals, emergency response vehicles, and retail stores.
- In July of 2011, SAFRAN finalized the acquisition of L-1 Identity Solutions, Inc.. This acquisition has strengthened SAFRAN’s position in the biometrics market and in August , BIO-key International, Inc. signed an agreement to acquire fingerprint manufacturer Montreal-based S.I.C. Biometrics Inc.
- In September of 2011, Nuance Communications, Inc. closed the acquisition of Loquendo. This will help the company to offer a broad, and high-quality portfolio of solutions.
- Also in September of 2011, Biometric Signature ID, Inc. entered into a partnership with Valtech to provide solutions that would greatly enhance the online security of its worldwide customers.
Hospitals are switching to biometrics technology to enhance security, speed the admission process, and reduce avoidable errors.
- Some of the biometric technologies hospitals are using include fingerprint, palm readers, iris scanners, and voice recognition systems. These devices are used to identify a patient's medical record and track and control the sensitive information from being breached or tampered.
-The clinic Urban Health Plan in Bronx, New Year, has been using iris scanners for last two years to avoid mistaken identities and also to ensure that patient records are not mishandled.
- The Veterans Affairs Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Florida, has a voice recognition system to allow patients to access information over the phone.
- St. Vincent Hospital and Health Care Center, Inc., an Indiana-based healthcare provider will be deploying fingerprint biometrics scanners to enhance security and at the same time provide the speed and simplicity of access demanded by the users.
- Simply Healthcare Plans (SHP), a Florida-based HMO, will be implementing biometrics technology to curb fraudulent activities. The SHP customers will have their irises scanned at the initial point of contact at the healthcare facility. SHOW LESS READ MORE >
