AUSTIN, Texas, October 8, 2018 – HID Global®, a worldwide leader in trusted identity solutions, today announced that it is joining HP at its Cerner Health Conference booth to share how trusted identities help combat opioid abuse while defending against breaches in a world of increasingly challenging security threats.

Presentations:

  • “Secure Authentication for EPCS,” on Tuesday, Oct. 9 and Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 2:30 p.m. each day:  HID Global will share how attendees can help win the fight against opioid abuse.  Sheila Loy, Director Healthcare & Insurance – Identity & Access Management with HID Global, will provide an educational overview of Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) rules associated with the Electronic Prescription of Controlled Substances (EPCS), and how to simplify compliance.
  • “Next Generation Secure Authentication,” on Tuesday, Oct. 9 and Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 11:30 a.m. each day: HID’s Todd Seeley, Global Manager, Business Development –  Extended Access Technologies, will describe how to achieve a fast and simple “tap-in/tap-out” experience for authenticating to Microsoft Windows running on HP Healthcare Edition hardware. 

Demonstrations:

  • HID Approve™ multi-factor authentication solution:  Combines the security of public key-based cryptography with the convenience of mobile push notifications for approving electronic prescribing transactions with a simple swipe of a mobile device. FIPS 140-2 cryptography ensures that HID Approve meets U.S. Healthcare EPCS requirements.
  • Tap-in/Tap-out authentication using highly secure HID credentials:  Attendees will experience the ease of using Seos® credentials to tap in and out of Microsoft Windows running on HP Healthcare Edition hardware.
