Infinite Peripherals enhances all-in-one healthcare device with RFID based mobile security
Today, Infinite Peripherals, a leader in enterprise mobility solutions, announced the launch of the Infinea X DF, a next-generation all-in-one medical mobility device for iPhone® 6S, 7 and 8. Infinite Peripherals has collaborated with trusted identity leader HID Global® to create the first mobile device of its kind. The new Infinea X DF integrated device is designed to increase efficiency, improve communication, and streamline hospital workflows. With embedded HID technology providing a compact, power efficient dual-frequency reader, plus a high-speed and accurate barcode scanner, and healthcare-grade materials, the Infinea X DF is the most secure and comprehensive device that Infinite Peripherals has ever developed.

“The RFID reader in the Infinea X DF represents a new milestone in reading contactless identity credentials from a mobile device. 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,” said Michael Chaudoin, VP Product Marketing, Extended Access Technologies, HID Global.

As digital medical records enable faster and more efficient access to patient information, identity protocols and data protection have never been more crucial. With single sign-on and multi-user shared device workflows, clinicians and hospitals can maintain security while improving quality of care, allowing caregivers to spend more time with their patients.

“HID Global is a tried-and-true leader in healthcare security. 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,” said Ralph Ignacio, VP of Marketing of Infinite Peripherals.

The Infinea X DF sets the stage for a new era of hospital efficiency:
  • Improve efficiency on the hospital floor while maintaining heightened security protocols. 
  • Boost productivity and increase compliance with convenient access for all users. 
  • Increase accountability with password reset maintenance and efficiently manage accounts across multiple systems. 
  • Tailor clinical communication alerts via simple integration with easy-to-use API/SDK. 
  • Support legacy formats, the latest high frequency credentials, and HID Mobile Access. 
  • Custom healthcare-grade materials provide durability and stability for demanding hospital environments. 

The Infinea X DF is the latest addition to an expanding healthcare mobility ecosystem. Together with the Imperea (camera-based scanning solution) and the Linea Pro 7i (asset tracking and supply chain), the Infinea X DF provides mobility across multiple health system departments.
