Biometric Access Control Solutions set for Strong Growth in the Healthcare Segment


T34xx Internal Biometric reader

Biometric access control solutions are set to record a very strong growth in the healthcare segment, with an estimated CAGR of 25.9% from 2013 to 2019, a recent research report from Transparency Market Research has been able to suggest.

The “Healthcare Biometrics Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 – 2019” study highlights the ongoing trends in this market and throws light on the performance of this market so far.

The paper points out that healthcare biometrics are mainly used in the areas of transaction authentication, physical access control, and logical access control.

Geographically, North America dominates the global healthcare biometrics market owing to extensive implementation of healthcare fraud controlling systems and enforcement of legislations such as HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) in the U.S.

Moreover, factors such as reduction in healthcare frauds, secured patient privacy and medical records, reduction in fake insurance claims reduction in identification and reimbursement processing, cost containment of the biometric devices and introduction of cheaper products with better accuracy will result in rapid adoption of biometrics security solutions in healthcare sector in the emerging markets.

Use of multimodal biometric system, which combines different types of biometric methods, such as combining facial and iris recognition is currently rapidly progressing trend. Biometrics is a promising and a fast growing segment in the field of next generation personal authentication and security systems and is changing the perception and look of healthcare industry.

Tensor Biometric Access Control Systems deliver security, reliability and good value for the healthcare segment

Biometric technology uses human physical attributes as locks and keys, making it particularly suitable for access control systems on the buildings of large organisations. Using biometrics for security and identification requires meeting two challenges: they must be cheap enough and sufficiently simple to be used by ordinary users. Furthermore, for enhanced security, these biometric access control systems should combine two or more types of authentication, such as coupling fingerprints with key codes or passwords to provide greater trust that who is logging in is only who is expected to do so.
