(PRWEB) July 15, 2010

Zvetco Biometrics, a global leader in fingerprint identity and authentication solutions and eAnytime® Corporation; a leading custom made-to-order computerized kiosk provider for healthcare, today announced the integration of Verifi™ fingerprint readers from Zvetco Biometrics into their computerized kiosks for dispensing methadone. Designed for busy drug rehabilitation outpatient and resident facility clinics, the patent pending, medical staff activated – patient empowered biometric kiosk solutions provide clinicians and patients with an intuitive, easy-to-use methodology to simplify dispensing.

"Clinics worldwide will now be able to safely and securely administer accurately measured doses to the patients without interrupting the staff or daily workflow," said Laurence Cohn, President of eAnytime® Corporation. "This frees staff and doctors for other important functions. In addition, the networking capabilities allow patients of clinics located in areas of natural disaster access to medications even though their local clinic may be affected or unavailable"

The eAnytime® kiosks powered by Verifi™ provide clinics worldwide the flexibility to deliver measured doses of methadone to their patients via patent pending technology that can’t be matched for efficiency and reliability. When combined with the extremely secure and accurate biometric readers from Zvetco Biometrics the kiosks deliver unequaled safety and protection from frivolous lawsuits. Applauded by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the federal Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), these kiosks are now in use by thousands of patients at dozens of health centers across the United States. The kiosk was designed with the particular needs of methadone clinics in mind where simplicity, accuracy, speed and security are vital.

"Kiosk systems with biometric authentication provide fast, safe access to the patient’s doses," said Zavi Cohen, CEO of Zvetco Biometrics. "This is often needed in walk-in ambulatory clinics, which require accurate response to the patient’s needs while avoiding disruption of staff and other patients waiting to see a physician. With the eAnytime® System, doctors and staff can quickly process and release patients wishing to medicate."

Zvetco Biometrics’ fingerprint authentication solutions offer a combination of security, convenience and ease-of-use. By integrating Verifi™ fingerprint readers from Zvetco Biometrics into the eAnytime kiosk, doctors no longer need to personally supervise the medicating of their patients. This allows for faster, more efficient patient care. The combined solution also provides a greater level of control in implementing policies that allow only authorized personnel access to patient and medication information in compliance with the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

"In today’s increasingly regulated healthcare world, fingerprint biometrics simplify user authentication for patient transactions, giving doctors more time to focus on their patients’ health“, said Zavi Cohen, CEO of Zvetco Biometrics.
