rf IDEAS Announces Authentication Partnership for New Lenovo ThinkPad T490 Healthcare Edition

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill.(February 11, 2019)--rf IDEAS, Inc., a leading innovator and manufacturer of employee credential readers for applications such as single sign-on, secure pull print, and attendance management will demonstrate the power of authentication with its embedded reader in the Lenovo ThinkPad T490 Healthcare Edition. Showcased in Lenovo booth 2821 at HIMSS19, the ThinkPad T490 Healthcare Edition is Lenovo’s first laptop dedicated to meet the needs of the healthcare industry. It is designed to safeguard device access and protect confidential patient data through secure, multi-factor authentication methods. The reader from rf IDEAS plays a pivotal role in this authentication process.


Readers from rf IDEAS leverage existing ID credentials and facilitate the login process while ensuring clinician identity, allowing users to login to any enabled system to access their specific resources. The reader’s compact design makes it ideal to embed within the small space requirements of the ThinkPad t490 Healthcare Edition.

“In the healthcare industry, data protection is one of the most important and complex concepts we considered when developing the ThinkPad T490 Healthcare Edition,” said Jerry Paradise, vice president, Commercial Product Portfolio. “We chose rf IDEAS as our authentication partner for its leadership in authentication standards and its track record of creating versatile readers that synergize with the dynamic needs of the healthcare industry.”

“The healthcare industry is an ever-changing landscape, and one that requires a strict understanding of industry standards to remain compliant,” said Tod Besse, senior vice president, Global Sales and Marketing, rf IDEAS. “We applaud Lenovo for its development of the ThinkPad T490 Healthcare Edition and were honored to partner on the important task of authentication in the device.”

Additional authentication solutions will be available in the rf IDEAS solution partner pavilion, booth #3169. Find the company’s presentation schedule and booth information here.
