Healthcare Facilities

Healthcare facilities are often chaotic environments that face the continuous challenge of maintaining the security of restricted areas, while allowing staff and emergency personnel to carry out tasks and respond to situations as quickly and efficiently as possible. The increase of hospitalized patients and their associated visitors adds strain to medical and security personnel. It is essential that those with the correct clearance are able to access restricted or sterilized zones quickly, seamlessly and in many cases hands-free, without compromising on security or safety.

In addition, it is paramount for hospitals to avoid the risks associated with misidentifying patients. When a physician enters a room, he or she needs to correctly identify the patient, and ensure that the correct examination or treatment is administered to each patient.


IMID Access Solution
FST Biometrics' IMID software, provides hospitals and healthcare facilities with an identification solution that is fast, accurate and non-invasive. Using a unique fusion of visual identification technologies including facial recognition and behavior analytics, IMID Access identifies hospital staff and patients at a distance and in-motion, granting the hospital personnel and patients seamless and hands-free access to the correct areas, according to their levels of authorization. IMID further allows healthcare facilities to maintain the highest levels of efficiency and hygiene, thus reducing the risks of malpractice and the resulting costly legal proceedings that may arise from misidentification. With its highly accurate visual identification technology, IMID provides physicians with valuable patient-specific information in a fraction of the time necessary to review charts in a traditional manner.
Key Features
For Hospital Staff:
  • Nurses and orderlies can access operating theatres and other restricted rooms, hands-free and in-motion, while transporting incapacitated patients.
  • Physicians and surgical staff can enter and maintain the integrity of surgeries and other sterilized areas, after washing their hands.
  • Physicians can identify allergies, pre-existing conditions and/or surgical history of each patient.
  • Physicians and hospital staff can accurately identify and monitor patients, reducing the risk of vulnerable patients entering restricted or potentially hazardous areas.
  For Patients and Visitors:
  • Hospitals can control access of patients and visitors to restricted areas.
  • Authorized patients can be admitted (such as new mothers to the pediatric room).
  • Approved visitors can enter access-controlled areas through IMID’s accurate identification (e.g., families visiting a patient in a sterile environment).
