The Challenge

Pharmacists often make a mistake in filling the prescription because of a poorly-written script. These mistakes can lead to dangerous misdosing or drug interactions with other medicines that have an adverse effect on the quality of patient care. Exostar recognized the huge burden for health IT vendors to enable Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS) for their providers.

The Solution

Gemalto’s solution is being used by Exostar to help secure applications connected to their cloud-based Identity Hubs for aerospace and life sciences communities. Protiva Cloud Confirm meets the EPCS requirement for users to provide a second factor to authenticate electronic prescriptions of controlled substances. Cloud Confirm includes the IDConfirm Strong Authentication Server and IDProve one-time password (OTP) tokens. Vendors use the OTP tokens to safely log on to their eRX service using their user names and the unique passcodes, which can only be used once. This prevents different forms of identity theft by ensuring a username/password combination cannot be used a second time.
