In the spring of 2009 the Jericho New York Fire Department was about to buy 6 Knox Boxes to keep narcotics safe and secure. Commissioner Kets was responsible for securing and accounting for all the narcotics purchased by the Jericho Fire Department and used on their ambulances.
“I just could not bring myself to purchase these boxes. I did not think they gave me the security and control I wanted. I contacted some people who are now known as MedixSafe and we came up with a product I was happy with and we purchased the first MedixSafes. We have currently upgraded to the newest M2 HID WI-FI. We are using 3 different access protocols for our paramedics, fingerprint & PIN, Card and Pin and key fob & pin. We are very happy with the MedixSafe products and service.” Ted Kets – Fire Commissioner, Jericho, NY
Keys and pin numbers are no longer enough to ensure security and accountability for emergency narcotics access. Across the country, controlled substance inventory shrinkage is having a critical impact on patient care, staff integrity, liability, and the bottom line. This has led to regulatory demands for an access audit trail – MedixSafe offers unique, field-tested security technologies to meet those demands.
MedixSafe is available in three sizes:
- MedixSafe M1 is the ambulance trade’s first, simplest dual access security solution. Incorporating both proximity card readers and PIN pads, M1 technologies allow for individual accountability and automated record keeping – assuring compliance with new, stricter regulations. MedixSafe-M2 is the ambulance trade’s most technologically advanced triple access security solution. Incorporating Biometrics, PIN, and/or Proximity Card, M2 technologies allow for the highest degree of individual accountability and automated recordkeeping – assuring compliance with new, stricter regulations.
- ClinixSafe C2 is the most technologically advanced dual access security solution for small pharmacies and clinics. Like the M2 Narcotics Cabinet, incorporating Biometrics, PIN, and/or Proximity Card, C2 technologies provide the highest degree of individual accountability and automated record keeping in a larger cabinet, ideal for narcotics storage in small pharmacies and clinics.
- The MedixSafe Biometric S-Series is the most technologically advanced Triple Access security solution for narcotics storage in pharmacies, clinics, ambulance companies, and law enforcement. The S2 Narcotics Cabinet incorporates Biometrics, PIN and/or Proximity Card to gain access. MedixSafe technologies provide the highest degree of individual accountability and automated record keeping. The S2 has two separate compartments, each with their own Triple Access security solution. The S-Series allows for separation for daily use while maintaining a higher level of security for back-up quantities. Each compartment can be programmed with completely separate user credentials.
