Advanced Response Concepts has a rich history of deploying identity technology within the communities that comprise Emergency Services. We’ve worked with hundreds of authorities at the municipal, regional and state levels to identify, classify, and securely manage the identity and attribute information of our nation’s first responders, firefighters, law enforcement officials and volunteer resources.

Responding to an emergency can mean coordination of multiple resources across diverse public safety disciplines. Our interoperable solutions allow seamless information flow between the forces on the ground and command authorities. It is designed to comply with the latest standards concerning first responder credentialing:
- The Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 201 – PIV I and II
- Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007 (Public Law 110-53)
- DHHS-HRSA Emergency System for Advanced Registration of Volunteer Health Care Professionals (ESAR-VHP) Interim Guidelines and Operating Procedures
- The National Incident Management System (NIMS) (DHS)
- The National EMS Scope of Practice Model
- Standards published by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), American National Standards Institute (ANSI) , the International Standards Organization (ISO) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)
The complexity of modern healthcare personnel, facilities and organizations creates a challenge for identity management and access control. Healthcare providers must provide security as well as a fast and flexible way to get qualified medical resources where they are needed the most. The RAPTOR system helps provide immediate access to critical licensing and privileges data for the nonprofit and commercial health care market. RAPTOR helps you verify and manage these important data sets and share the information across a healthcare network.
Imagine a physician comes into your facility with a request for practicing privileges and you can pull his complete educational, specialty and sub specialty certification, DEA registration, licensure, and practice history with the simple swipe of his photo ID credential. A lab technician can quickly and securely gain access to the facilities he has the credentials to enter. Access to controlled substances can be tracked and monitored.

- Interoperability with physical access control systems throughout the enterprise installation.
- A higher level of security and accountability in the distribution of controlled substances.
- Enhancement of productivity especially in human resources and continuing education.
- Compliant with the National ESAR-VHP program and ability to interface with first responder systems.
- Protection of patients by identity and licensure verification at a high assurance level.
- Integration of criminal background checks and ongoing monitoring of licensure status.
Recent high-profile news stories highlight the need for enhanced identity and access security on university campuses. A secure means of identification is critical to ensure authorized access to student dorms, university facilities and computers. The Raptor system uses Smartcard technology that ensures the identity of the cardholder and embeds information and permissions unique to that person. This technology can be used for many purposes on campus – verification of identity for test-taking; secure access to information sources; storage of credentials and licenses; vetting of university employees; crowd event security; prevention of unauthorized persons in dorms; and facility access monitoring. The Raptor system can be implemented through a variety of computers and handheld devices, making it a flexible solution for multiple applications in a university setting.
