New York, NY (PRWEB) April 8, 2009
International Biometric Group (IBG) is pleased to announce its upcoming webcast Biometrics and e-Prescribing. IBG consultant Ashraf El-Arini will discuss the role of biometrics in e-prescriptions, as well as the existing and potential roles of biometric security in the health care industry.
The health care industry is transitioning from hard token and paper-based authentication systems to electronic systems due to a documented increase in fraud relating to prescription claims. Once implemented, the recently passed American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will allocate $20 billion to fraud prevention, registry interoperability and computerized health records.
Mr. El-Arini will address the following topics:
- Successful deployments of biometrics in health care IT
- Impact of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act on health care IT
- The need for more stringent security measures due to rising rate of health care fraud
- The DEA's Proposed Rule for e-Prescribing Controlled Substances
- The viability of biometrics in authenticating e-prescription solutions
