OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill., June 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- VASCO Data Security International, Inc. (NASDAQ: VDSI), a global leader in authentication, digital signatures, and identity management, announced today that PointClickCare, a leading provider of cloud-based software for the senior care industry, has implemented VASCO's strong authentication solution.
Recently, PointClickCare launched their new Practitioner Engagement mobile solution that enables practitioners to view patient charts, electronically co-sign orders, and deliver care anytime, anywhere through a mobile device. In order to meet privacy and security rules, a positive ID is required for electronically signing orders, observations and notes.
PointClickCare is leveraging VASCO's DIGIPASS GO 6 one-button authenticators to enable healthcare practitioners to conduct secure, HIPAA-compliant mobile conversations, and approve and sign patient orders. This makes their job easier, and helps them deliver faster and better care to patients.
"Security is an important issue for senior care practitioners when implementing an authentication and positive identification solution for electronically prescribing and co-signing orders," says Dave Wessinger, PointClickCare CTO. "VASCO's strong authentication addresses these challenges by offering a convenient and safeguarded second factor authentication for our customers that will meet the DEA's requirements."
