Overall Satisfaction with DigitalPersona

COHC uses digital persona in the whole company. every desk has a fingerprint reader connected to it. We use it to log into windows and also to log into our EMR program called eClinicalWorks. DP allows our users and staff to quickly log in and out of the computers in the exam rooms and also at their desks.
  • fast user switching
  • if someone is already logged in and you need to log them off and get into the computer ad your self. all you have to do is tap their finger and DP will log the other person out and log you in.
  • small form factor
  • since it's a small compact box it can pretty much be placed anywhere we need it.
  • easy to use
  • just have to tap your finger and go
  • the bottom of the reader.....I get its rubber so it can be on a desk, but in our case when I tried to glue them to the desk for security reasons, the glue wouldn't stick or double sided tape didn't even stick to the device
  • connection while in program......sometimes on a computer that has a webcam and the DP reader connected the reader doesn't work. I'm guessing because of the type
  • have it some way know when you change your password in a software that using DP readers to log into like a website. so that it changes it in the fingerprint software also like it does for windows logins
  • pos: providers like that from just a tap of the finger that they can log into a computer
  • neg: computers that have a webcam have problems using the reader and webcam in our EMR software
  • pos: Ma's like ability to do fast user switching
first time using a finger print reader
in house windows
and out in house EMR software eClinicalWorks

It is well suited for providers to just tap their finger to log in instead of type a password every time they need to log in.
