Allscripts Certifies BIO-key International, Inc. (BKYI) Healthcare Identity Management Solutions

|Includes: BIO-key International, Inc. (BKYI)

BIO-key International, a provider of fingerprint biometric identification solutions, advanced mobile credentialing, and identity verification technologies, reports that Allscripts has certified BKYI's biometric identity management solutions for healthcare providers using Allscripts Professional EHR program, which is currently used by more than 180,000 physicians.

Allscripts Professional provides electronic health records management for small to midsize practices such as the Knox Community Hospital in Mt. Vernon, Ohio, which is the first to incorporate the new integrated solution.

"The third and most recent integration with Allscripts is important to us because the majority of Allscripts customers use Pro EHR," Mike DePasquale, CEO of BKYI, stated in the press release. "There are also indications we can launch our authentication solutions faster with Pro customers because the evaluation and decision making process is less complex."

The integration of BKYI's solutions with Allscripts Professional eliminates the use of passwords, cards, or tokens traditionally used to access electronic health records, allowing providers the ability to quickly and easily move from device to device accessing patient records with a swipe of their finger, reducing log-in time and increasing productivity and workflow.
