The SecureAuth Solution

SecureAuth Solution

Scripps was looking to better serve their patients and physicians while ensuring the security of their Electronic Prescriptions for Controlled Substances (EPCS) system.

The Scripps team had to balance strong security with a fast and easy authentication process. They were drawn to DEA compliant SecureAuth because the smartphone app provided a quick fingerprint biometric and a simple “accept” or “deny” button.
