Behavioral biometrics technology developer Biometric Signature ID of Lewisville, Tex., has released an authentication solution for use with Epic's electronic health record software. Users of Epic will now have access to the BioSig-ID suite of products including the web-based app.

Identification verification on the cloud-based platform is accomplished by having users write four letters or numbers within a confined space on a web page by moving their mouse, stylus or dragging their finger across their smartphone screen. The software assesses the unique pattern of length, angle, speed, height, number of strokes and stores the information in an encrypted database. This data is compared to patterns collected by the user's subsequent logins, confirming that the person who registered is the same person trying to access the account. Access is from any mobile device or PC.
