INTERVIEW: Tom Evangelisti, Director, Mobile Business Development, ImageWare Systems

As part of Healthcare Biometrics Month 2017, FindBiometrics President Peter O’Neill spoke to Tom Evangelisti, Director, Mobile Business Development, ImageWare Systems. The conversation begins with talk of ImageWare’s FDA cleared pillphone mHealth app and the traditional barriers to entry in the healthcare market. The discussion then delves into topics of multi-modality, the advantages of match-on-server authentication in healthcare, the overlap between healthcare and enterprise biometrics, and much more. Peter O’Neill, President, FindBiometrics (FB): Recently ImageWare announced its partnership with American Biometric Solutions, Inc. revolving around the pillphone mHealth app. Can you explain the specific needs this app serves? Why are biometrics so integral in healthcare communications apps like this? Tom Evangelisti, Director, Mobile Business Development, ImageWare Systems (ImageWare):Healthcare organizations are one of the most targeted sectors for data breaches. We hear about breaches into patients’ Electronic Health Records (EHR), hacks into the IT systems, patients’ personal information like SSN, home addresses being stolen, etc., almost every day. This tells us that current authentication methods are failing within today’s connected healthcare world.  Strong authentication of identity is vital to protect Personal Health Information (PHI) contained within healthcare apps, networks, and devices. Two factor authentication is  not enough, and a patient’s medical records simply must be protected! That’s where biometrics comes in. Multi-modal biometrics – authenticating the user with different types of biometrics – is by far the most effective form of identity authentication:  face, voice, fingerprint, eye, hand, etc. Biometrics can be used to identify medical staff, check-in patients, access clinical or medical data, or log into mobile applications.  Strong traceable and reliable authentication is the key to maintaining security of sensitive personal information. The pillphone is ImageWare’s vertical example of what biometrics can do to secure and simplify the login experience for the healthcare sector. It biometrically secures communications between health …
