It delivers secure No Click Access® for any user from any workstation with just a fingerprint — something that is unique to every user.
Why biometric authentication matters
Usernames and passwords are hard to remember and type, and disrupt thought processes and workflows. OneSign Fingerprint Biometric Identification offers care providers the most convenient and secure biometric authentication possible. Whether it's a desktop, ordering a prescription or opening a medicine cabinet, all that's needed is a swipe of a fingerprint to gain secure, authenticated access. It's convenience with security built in. Security that is approved for order signing by the Ohio Board of Pharmacy and supports DEA EPCS.
How biometric authentication works
Uniquely, OneSign Fingerprint Biometric Identification uses a fingerprint as both username and password. At enrollment, a digital signature is created from the care provider's fingerprint, stored in the OneSign appliance and associated with their user name and password. To log in, the care provider simply places a finger on a reader — no clicks are required. Streamlining the authentication process and positively identifying users by their fingerprint greatly simplifies clinical workflows such as order signing, ePrescribing and medication administration.
