The Reality of Healthcare Security

The rising incidence of patient-generated violence has changed the healthcare environment dramatically. Hospital pharmacies need to manage inventory, remain compliant, and prevent the costly theft of controlled narcotic medications.

Efforts to circumvent user name and password protections are endemic in healthcare environments. Providers carry the responsibility of keeping their patients, residents, staff, data and facilities safe 24/7.

It’s a Balancing Act

Decisions to safeguard patients and visitors while separating public spaces from restricted ones Hospital and healthcare systems have a duty to secure patient information, medications and valuable equipment.

The need to use multiple user names and ID’s Maintaining access integrity reduces facility liability.

What’s the Real Cost?

Do more with less’ budgets remain a concern. Innovation and automation continue to suffer. Multimillion dollar fines for non-compliance. Hospital security dept. reputations are being tested daily with maintaining the public safety at ‘any cost’.


Visitor Management, Intrusion Detection, Loss Prevention, Pharmaceutical Inventory, Life Safety Management and More.

A Safe and Secure Environment.

Mitigate potential events before they happen by alerting and locking down areas threatened by unauthorized intruders. Modern systems allow for better monitoring while granting access only where it’s needed. Traditional locks and outdated access control systems are not as secure offering potential intruders an open invitation.

What’s Needed?

Investment in a robust long-term access control system. Reduced liability and increased facility integrity via Biometric access. Timely alerts for emergent threats and security events. The system can be configured to work with multiple applications enabling one touch log on to patient records, administrative files and research resources.

Mobile Biometric Access

Introducing The MBX-ID

The latest evolution in smart badge technology. Combines biometric fingerprint authentication with RFID & Bluetooth technology that allows physical and logical access to the assigned user only. Eliminates need to swipe the card in an external reader, shifting verification to the biometric match-on device.

  • Eliminates the use of user names and passwords forever
  • One touch access allows for quicker provider response, improved productivity and improved patient care.
  • Access card can be used with existing technology or with a state-of-the-art system with enhanced capabilities.
  • Makes for cost effective security solution that can be converted quickly & easily.

How it Works


Our biometric technology utilizes a fully encrypted 10 point fingerprint template as an identifier that cannot be reverse engineered.

Fingerprint identification is verified in less than a second with and LED status indicator. Connects via Bluetooth/NFC using secured encrypted communication protocols.

Badge is unique to the assigned user and only authorized individual can activate the card through fingerprint identification. No personal data stored on the badge or in an external database.

Promotes Antimicrobial Stewardship to enhance patient health outcomes and decrease unnecessary costs

Unique & Open
Our technology is a unique open platform control system, allowing for customization to fit the needs of a particular institution. The MBX-ID can be adapted to any Bluetooth or RFID communication system in use today. Ability to assign different access levels of privileges for students, faculty, and staff.

A custom one touch duress feature will communicate a threat to an administrator, security, or local police depending on the threat level. Our Bluetooth technology provides location of alarm status and potential threat to emergency personnel.

The MBX-ID can allow a message to be sent to signal a general alarm through phones and can be tied to existing messaging systems.
