Uses of Kiosks in Healthcare

The healthcare industry is held to a particularly high standard when it comes to data security and patient privacy. Unauthorized access to patient data can be costly to a facility’s reputation and bank account. Kiosk software is designed specifically to secure your device, network and data from unauthorized individuals.
