HID Global Showcases EPCS Solutions at Cerner Health ConferenceHID Global is showing off how its identity solutions can help to fight opioid abuse and digital threats in the healthcare sector at this week’s Cerner Health Conference, an event focused on healthcare technology.

The company is showcasing its solutions in partnership with HP, whose booth will stage two major presentations from HID. In one of them, entitled, “Secure Authentication for EPCS”, HID Global Healthcare and Insurance — Identity and Access Management Director Sheila Loy will provide an overview of Drug Enforcement Agency rules concerning the Electronic Prescription of Controlled Substances. The other presentation, “Next Generation Secure Authentication”, will see HID Global Business Development —Extended Access Technologies Global Manager Todd Seeley discuss how to enable “tap-in/tap-out” authentication via Windows on HP Healthcare Edition hardware.

The latter solution will also be demoed using HP Healthcare Edition devices with an embedded RF IDeas reader. And HID Global will additionally demo its HID Approve solution, showing how its use of public key-based cryptography and mobile notifications can be used to administrate EPCS on a smartphone.

With HID Global’s parent company having just acquired biometrics specialist Crossmatch, HID Global may already be poised to attract considerable attention from attendees of the Cerner Health Conference, especially since biometric technology is a matter of intensifying interest in the world of healthcare. So the event offers an ideal opportunity for HID to showcase these EPCS solutions.

The Cerner Health Conference kicked off on October 8th and runs until the 11th in the Kansas City Convention Center.
