In an effort to prevent such fraud, Sandata Technologies, a technology provider of home healthcare solutions, has partnered with PerSay adding voice biometrics to enhance its current suite of time-and-attendance product capabilities. According to the announcement, the addition of PerSay’s VocalPassword to Sandata’s product suite, “enables Santrax customers to validate the identity of field employees using a precise biometric based multi-factor authentication process, whether they utilize a landline or mobile telephone.”
Sandata reports that customers are expressing interest in voice verification technology providing “a simple, accurate and effective way to ensure that our home health aides are at work,” said Marki Flannery, with President of Partners in Care based in New York City.
