IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 27, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HID Global, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, and DellTM, announced today that the two companies have combined their technologies to meet the growing needs of the healthcare industry. HID Global has provided OMNIKEY® 5321 readers for use with Dell's Mobile Clinical Computing (MCC) solution, which offers greater security through a single authentication, fast and automatic, made with their own ID badge. The solution allows health care providers to have secure access to all authorized data and applications without the need to memorize different login IDs and passwords to hospital systems or external solutions.
Besides the unique signature and authentication features, Dell's Mobile Clinical Computing solution consists of two pillars - cross-platform virtualization and mobility equipment, providing healthcare organizations more efficiency, productivity and full data security.
The purpose of Mobile Clinical Computing 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%. According to 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 virtualization of data, and allows for current standard information to be securely accessed at any time and at any place by any authorized person".
According to Gustavo Gassmann, Director of Sales at HID Global in Brazil, the company's solution is ideal for hospitals with professionals who need to share the same computer and system. "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 Gassmann.
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.
