Infinite Peripherals Adds RFID-based Security to Health-Care Mobile Device

Infinite Peripherals, a provider of enterprise mobility solutions, has announced the launch of its Infinea X DF medical-mobility device for Apple iPhone models 6S, 7 and 8. Infinite Peripherals has collaborated with HID Global to create the device.

The Infinea X DF is designed to increase efficiency, improve communication and streamline hospital workflows, the company reports. The device comes with embedded HID technology providing a compact, dual-frequency reader, as well as a high-speed bar-code scanner and health-care-grade materials.

"The RFID reader in the Infinea X DF represents a new milestone in reading contactless identity credentials from a mobile device," said Michael Chaudoin, HID Global's VP of product marketing for extended-access technologies, in a prepared statement. "In collaboration with Infinite Peripherals, HID developed a next-generation card reader with innovative antenna design that reliably reads a wide range of user credentials, while being optimized for the size and power constraints of mobile devices. Supporting low and high frequency credentials plus HID's Mobile Access technology, this design is ideal for today's healthcare identity challenges, where staff and devices are always on the move."

"HID Global is a tried-and-true leader in healthcare security," said Ralph Ignacio, Infinite Peripherals' VP of marketing, in the prepared statement. "Together, we wanted to create an all-in-one device that enables a secure and compliant healthcare ecosystem for patients and employees. With the Infinea X DF, multiple caregivers can do more from a single, protected mobile device. This next-generation technology sets the stage for a new era of healthcare efficiency."

The Infinea X DF is intended to allow hospitals to improve efficiency while maintaining heightened security protocols, boost productivity and increase compliance with convenient access for all users, increase accountability with password reset maintenance, manage accounts across multiple systems, tailor clinical communication alerts and support legacy formats.
