dell healthcareSecure identity solutions provider HID Global and Dell entered into a partnership where they have combined their technologies in order to meet the growing needs of enterprises in the healthcare sector.

HID Global offered Omnikey 5321 readers along with Dell’s Mobile Clinical Computing (MCC) solution that is designed to offer greater security through a single authentication, fast and automatic. The companies said that the solution is designed to facilitate healthcare providers to have secure access to all authorised data and applications without the need to memorise different login IDs and passwords to hospital systems or external solutions. Dell’s Mobile Clinical Computing solution also has two pillars, namely cross-platform virtualisation and mobility equipment that will provide healthcare enterprises more efficiency, productivity and full data security.

The purpose of MCC solution is to bring mobility to the hospital, save time, improve the quality of patient care, and increase hospital’s operational productivity up to 25 percent, says Ricardo Menezes, Director of Sales at Dell Brazil for Health, Education and Government. “That does not mean Dell is equipping hospitals only with notebooks, but with a solution that integrates the virtualisation of data, and allows for current standard information to be securely accessed at any time and at any place by any authorised person,” he added.

“The two factor authentication is always used for employee access: the identification card that can also be used for physical access, and a password. Besides the ease of use of the technology, security is guaranteed for the multiple users who share the same machine,” said Gustavo Gassmann, Director of Sales at HID Global, adding that the company’s solution is ideal for hospitals with professionals who need to share the same computer and system.

With a dual interface, HID Global’s OMNIKEY 5321 reader is for external use via USB and supports 13.56 MHz contactless iCLASS and MIFARE cards that follow ISO 14443 A / B and ISO 15693 standards. The reader allows users to experience the convenience, speed and security of contactless technology for different applications including login to Windows, networks, web sites and applications for the secure storage of user names, passwords and personal information.
