Vecna, a provider of patient self-service solutions, along with Fujitsu Frontech North America have announced a strategic partnership to deliver a new complete biometric patient authentication solution.
Fujitsu’s PalmSecure technology uses near-infrared light to capture a patient’s vein patter, generating a unique biometric template for identification verification. Vecna’s On-Site Registration solution enables patients to update demographics, pay bills, verify insurance and print directions to their care provider.
“Our On-Site Registration kiosks optimize patient communication at the point-of-service,” Ben Bau, Vice President and General Manager of Patient Self-Service Solutions at Vecna said. “By working with Fujitsu’s PalmSecure solution, we’re able to complement barcode scanning, manual authentication, and credit card authorization with a biometric identification solution to offer patients and their providers valuable time-saving services.”
“Since palm vein patterns are unique to each person, it is impossible to forge an individual’s identity,” Randy Fox, Vice President, Currency Handling and Identity Product Solutions, Fujitsu Frontech North America said. “Also, because this innovative technology is highly accurate, healthcare systems are provided with an extra layer of necessary identity verification protection.”
Both Fujitsu and Vecna will be exhibiting at HIMSS this week, from Feb. 24-27, 2014.
Reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, Fujitsu Frontech North America recently announced the deployment of its PalmEntry physical access control system throughout the Oak Hill Academy campus.
