Digital identity solutions provider, HID Global, has announced the availability of its cloud based electronic prescription solution targeted at hospitals and health practitioners in India.

The solution consists of a smart card that carries the patient’s medical history, lab test reports and prescriptions; a card reader; a card printer; and project management, installation, workflow analysis, training and support.

According to HID Global, NASSCOM pegs the the Indian healthcare IT market at $1billion (about INR 66.5 billion) and is likely to grow about 1.5 times by 2020. HID Global feels that with increasing customer adoption, privatization of healthcare and rapid growth of technologies like predictive analytics and cloud, India poses tremendous opportunities for the healthcare IT market.

The solution gets rid of cumbersome paper-based prescription system and promises to increase productivity. E-prescriptions can be electronically sent to the pharmacy, reducing waiting times.

The solution has already been tested in and adopted by Nemours Children’s Health System, based in Delaware, Georgia, Florida, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, in the USA.

Sheila Loy, an HID Global spokesperson said, “HID Global’s vast portfolio of secure identity solutions made it possible for us to deliver a highly customized system that addresses Nemours unique requirements. Our goal is to leverage our comprehensive offering to help organizations improve their users’ overall experience while increasing security at the same time. The new Nemours system is a positive reflection of how an organization can accomplish these twin objectives using HID Global solutions.”

The solution includes:

  • ActivID Credential Management System (CMS) and ActivID Authentication Server
  • OMNIKEY readers/encoders and FIPS 140.2 contact credentials with an OTP and display window
  • FARGO printers and AsureID software to print customize credentials
  • HID Professional Services for project management, installation, workflow analysis, training and support
