Biometrics for elder-care facilities

Cashless payment system goes live in care homes (24dash)

A biometric payment system has gone live in a number of care homes for the over 55s – and is helping to provide residents with nutritious meals.

allpay’s unique fingertip recognition system is being used to simplify life for North Hertfordshire Homes residents at four of its care homes.

There are a range of identity management and access control challenges associated with elder care facilities and the industry in which they operate is expanding rapidly as the population ages.

Now, it’s not easy to retro-fit existing facilities with top-to-bottom biometrics but if I were in the business of building new ones, I’d certainly reach out to someone like SecurLinx to discuss how biometrics could increase efficiency across many functions, not just payments as discussed in the linked article.
