In turn, the partnership provides Irish customers access to industry leading biometric products.

Can Biometrics Increase Safety in the NHS?

Within the NHS, security is always a primary concern for patients, staff and data. Managing Director of ievo Ltd, Shaun Oakes, explores how the healthcare system can benefit from adopting biometrics into their security provisions in his article: Can Biometrics Increase Safely in the NHS?

Excerpt: 
"The healthcare sector actively invests in security infrastructure in either continuous renovations of older sites or new buildings as well. The NHS is prioritising both physical safety and information security as key areas to consistently improve on. This plays an important role in the NHS’s commitment to digitize all patient health records as by doing so, the NHS will have to face the possibility of data corruption or theft. An example of this is the significant investment Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has made to protect patient information; over £54,000 has been invested in mobile device management technology since 2013 in order to prevent the theft of sensitive patient data.
 
With an increase in concern over safety procedures across the industry, healthcare professionals are called upon to use ID cards and pin entry systems for both physical access and access to patient’s data. However, ID and swipe cards are by nature, inherently flawed; cards can easily be lost, stolen or shared – causing potentially serious security breaches, whilst also demanding reoccurring costs for replacement. Many argue that the answer to these issues is found in biometric security systems."
