"By using a cell phone and using it in secure fashion, [healthcare providers] can ensure that they are always accessing the exact same medical record," explains Peter Tapling, CEO of Authentify. "You take your phone, which is essentially your LifeMed ID device, and you interact with the LiveMed ID system."
LifeMed ID then returns a QR code unique to the patient. The QR code is not static, but is generated on the spot. Tapling explains that the QR code offers an additional layer of security.
"Early efforts at medical records were very siloed," Tapling says. "They didn't have a way to exchange information."
And with rampant healthcare fraud today, the solution can offer greater peace of mind. "As you begin to add more checks and balances in the [healthcare] system, fraud will get increasingly more difficult. Today, what's to stop a bad guy from walking into a doctor's office with my name, my Social Security number, birth date, address, and ask for services? Tapling points out.
"One of the reasons that healthcare fraud is so easy today is because it's so paper-based," Tapling says.

Peter Tapling, the CEO of Authentify, is the member of the Council that focuses on that area.
"A call center is a particularly challenging place to authenticate individuals," said Peter Tapling, CEO at Chicago-based Authentify Inc.
"The challenge faced by the educators is to adopt a mechanism which would ensure the identity of the students who enroll for remote courses," remarks Tapling.
Peter Tapling says many retail breaches start with a network intrusion that is typically traced back to weak credentials.
The consensus, Peter Tapling added, is that there's a possibility the perpetrators of this apparent breach may be the same group of Russian and Ukrainian hackers responsible for the recent data breaches at JPMorgan and other banks.
"One of the characteristics of being a smaller company is, we can come up with really great ideas and we kind of work really hard to get particular individuals to implement it," Tapling told Benzinga. "There's no replacing Apple making something available to 500 million people in a day. So I think it's going to be a combination." Beats Electronics June 1, 2014 Is Beats Developing Apple's Next Groundbreaking Device? "Whether or not Apple has this in mind is pure speculation, but many of the biometrics that will become common in the future need a wearable device," Tapling told Benzinga.
Individuals resort to lying about themselves to protect their identities when accessing systems in today's imperfect cyber world, says Peter Tapling, president of Authentify, an out-of-band authentication service.

Authentify CEO Peter Tapling to Moderate a Panel on Mobile Fraud
CHICAGO, February 25, 2015 - Increasingly, organizations are embracing mobile payments as critical to their growth plans and revenue. This increased emphasis is likely due to the mobile channel growing at a higher rate than other channels and the availability of mobile payment technologies like Apple Pay. However, as mobile represents an expanding share of business for organizations, it is not without risk and will require additional plans and tools for managing that risk.
During the BAI Payments Connect 2015 conference next week, Authentify President and CEO Peter Tapling will moderate a panel discussion to explore mobile fraud and address ways to enhance cybersecurity measures that limit losses. Joining Mr. Tapling are Rick Swenson, assistant vice president, Enterprise Security Group for USAA, and Andrew "Drew" J. Luca, partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLC.
