OVERLAND PARK, KA: Vince and Associates Clinical Research, provider of clinical research services, announces the addition of facial recognition software for enhancing the security at its pharmacy.

The new security system scans over 2,000 points of a user’s face multiple times each second and is capable of tracking the identity of each person who is scanned including the limited key individuals authorized access as well as the identity of those denied access.

Dr. Brad Vince, CEO and Medical Director of Vince & Associates, says, “Vince & Associates conducts a large number of clinical trials with controlled substances. In order to ensure the highest level of security with these drug materials, this advanced biometric security system has been implemented in addition to existing security controls.”

“As technology advances, we look to implement more sophisticated safeguards for the security measures of controlled substances. The proprietary identification algorithms and interface software of this new system have had years of rigorous field testing,” says Scott Smiley, Director of Pharmacy Operations.
