Fingerprint Solution will Safeguard Patient Data, Support HIPAA Regulations, and Improve Employee Productivity
Atlanta, GA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 12/13/2006 --M2SYS Technology announced today it has formed a relationship with Kodak’s Dental Systems Group to integrate M2SYS’ patent-pending fingerprint software into the KODAK ORTHOTRAC Practice Management Software. As a result, Kodak’s customers will be able to secure sensitive patient information and comply with HIPAA requirements, while improving productivity and user experience by eliminating the time, hassle, and headache associated with password management.
“We were able to rapidly add a much needed biometric authentication module to our practice management software and avoid the burden of low-level fingerprint SDK integration,” noted Kodak’s Dental Systems Orthodontic Product Manager, Susan Whitt. “M2SYS delivered a solution that also supports Citrix and Terminal Services. Now we have a proven fingerprint system to simplify the process of employee and patient management, and an extra level of security.”
Bio-Plugin(TM) enables software companies to quickly integrate a complete, seamless fingerprint recognition system, including a high-performance 1:N identification engine. Bio-Plugin(TM) eliminates the system dependencies, extensive development, and specialized knowledge of biometric complexities inherent to fingerprint SDKs.
“M2SYS is proud to be working with Kodak to provide this critical biometric technology to the healthcare industry,” commented Michael Trader, President of M2SYS. “Given Kodak’s market position, a significant number share of orthodontic offices will be using the M2SYS fingerprint software delivered as a seamless module within Kodak’s practice management suite.”
