Seattle, WA - November 28, 2017 - Telmediq, the leading provider of unified clinical communications, today announced the integration of new Face ID technology for enhanced security for the new iPhone X.
Face ID provides secure authentication enabled by the TrueDepth camera system of the iPhone X, which uses face geometry and attention to unlock the iPhone and provides the highest level of iPhone authentication security. In addition to Face ID integration, the latest Telmediq release includes full-screen display.
“We are excited to be the first mobile healthcare communications solution to take advantage of Face ID as an even more secure way to authenticate our users,” notes Ben Moore, Telmediq CEO. “Clinicians using the latest iPhone X will be able to streamline their clinical encounters and expedite communication workflow with one less step in the authentication process.”
In the healthcare environment, the touch-less Face ID authentication can help streamline real-time documentation and communication, without the delays associated with repeatedly entering passcodes or removing gloves to activate Touch ID. For emergent situations, the time savings can be significant.
“Physicians today are spending almost half their day on EHR and desk work, with repeated authentication prompts wasting valuable time. Enabling Face ID makes it easier to spend more time with patients,” notes Moore. “Providing convenience and speed while maintaining HIPAA compliance in a secure texting and communications platform is one of our main goals”
For clinicians who have upgraded to the iPhone X, Telmediq will prompt to adopt system-level preferences for Face ID support. If you are interested in learning more about how a unified clinical communications platform will prepare your hospital for the future, we'd like to hear from you.
