RFIDeas, the innovator of WaveID®, and KSI, Inc. will introduce the first compliant ePrescribe keyboard for controlled substances at this year's HIMSS Annual Conference & Exhibition, held in New Orleans, March 3-7, 2013.
RFIDeas is partnering with KSI, the leader in professional grade keyboard products, to deliver a unique integrated desktop keyboard solution engineered to meet the new DEA standard of Electronic Prescription for Controlled Substances. These regulations provide pharmacies, hospitals and practitioners with the ability to use modern technology to safely and securely issue prescriptions, meet HIPAA compliance and protect patient privacy.
The KSI 1700 keyboard includes a FIPS 201 (Federal Information Processing Standard) certified biometric reader and the WaveID pcProx card reader from RFIDeas. These two integrated devices, along with approved EHR or security software, create a compliant and secure way to meet these new DEA regulations.
"The 1700 keyboard system for DEA EPCS gives hospitals and pharmacies the ability to have a clean, efficient solution integrated into one elegant desktop device," says Phil Bruno, Senior VP of Sales and Marketing. "Partnering with RFIDeas and their WaveID solution allows us to leverage legacy technology and deliver a cost effective, strong, dual factor authentication solution to meet the challenges of the complex world of Electronic Health Records and the growing need for privacy and security.”
"Today's healthcare staff faces the daily challenge of maximizing every minute of their day to allow as much time for patient care as possible," says Richard Landuyt, President of RFIDeas. "By partnering with KSI, we are able to offer a solution that helps save up to 15 minutes per shift, per employee."
