Security has always remained a vital concern in healthcare sector when it comes to safeguard confidential medical data, records and patients’ privacy. Biometric devices analyze biological data of a user by capturing unique his or her physical human features and use them as a future reference (template) for user’s identification. The basic components of biometric identification systems consist of a scanning device or a reader, software to convert the scanned information into digital form and a database to store the biometric data for comparison with entered biometric data.
A variety of human features such as fingerprint, face, iris, vein, voice, hand and signature seem to reveal several potential attributes for biometric authentication. Use of biometrics with the help of these physical characteristics along with logical or physical access or both together has found a worldwide use in the healthcare sector. However, improper storage of medical data may pose a threat of invasion of the user’s identity and thus challenge patient security. Biometric solutions are facilitates the provision restricted access to rooms or computer network systems from unauthorized access.
Healthcare facilities across the globe are increasingly shifting their focus on implementing biometric security solutions for patient identification and their linking to electronic health records system to the respective patients. Integrity of patient identity, efficient and safe data recording, control on medical frauds and reduction in inventory theft are some of the distinct advantages offered by biometrics. Biometrics provides healthcare professionals and patients to secure their information and keep it confidential by only being released such information to those who have the rightful access to it. Biometrics allows matching of a patient to his records with minimal possibility of errors and avoids mixing up of patient information which can have serious consequence on the health and wellbeing of such patients. Moreover, factors such as culmination of false patient identity, patient protection and reduction of the overburden of medical frauds and security of medical records have urged those in the healthcare industry to opt for biometrics.
