The IMP-1C Reader complies with the FIPS protocol. It can accommodate hospitals that have clinical workflows requiring stronger authentication processes, such as EPCS.
Imprivata IMP-1C - fingerprint reader (min 25) is rated2.00 out of5 by2.
Rated 5 out of 5 bywebzcom from Works but needs improvementWorks most of the time. Requires all of the USB power settings related to it to be set to a always on configuration. If powered off, it will not power back up until it is unplugged from the computer and plugged back in. This needs to be fixed.

Rated 5 out of 5 byForewarned from Why on Earth Pay this Much for a Scanner, and what about Accuracy?This scanner's price is surprisingly high, in my opinion. I am familiar with what the other EPCS biometric authentication provider charges for FIPS scanner and keep a Benjamin in your pocket in savings for each.It looks like this may be the only scanner option for Imprivata users to choose from, which means a buyer is trapped into overpaying forever for more scanners.Since algorithm accuracy is so directly tied to end-user satisfaction, I decided to take look at the NIST testing results on Imprivata's fingerprint algorithm, because the DEA does not set a minimum test performance to pass, instead requiring only that the test results be public. It's incumbent on the buyer to spend five minutes to look at the NIST test numbers there on page 8 of the report for Imprivata http://biometrics.nist.gov/cs_links/PFT/PFTII/results/3F_results.pdf , and compare with the results for the other biometric options being considered. Not doing so would be like buying a car without knowing its mileage when you are planning to drive 100 miles a day.
