Georgia Hospital Deploys M2SYS Biometric Patient Identification Solution
M2SYS Healthcare Solutions announced that Archbold Memorial Hospital has installed RightPatient, the company’s biometrics patient identification management solution designed to boost patient safety and medical data integrity.
RightPatient works to provide an accurate patient ID system that lets Archbold Memorial Hospital staff perform a rapid biometric search to instantly pull up a patient’s medical record.
Prior to signing with M2SYS, Archbold Memorial Hospital was looking for an identification matching system that could help to cut down on human errors, curb patient identity fraud, stop fraudsters from making duplicate medical records, and lower billing errors.
After doing more research, the hospital found that iris biometrics would offer multiple benefits, including patient identification speed, accuracy, hygiene, real-time de-duplication search capability, and data standardization.
Archbold Memorial Hospital has initially installed RightPatient at its flagship hospital, with additional plans to implement the system at other medical facilities within its 540-bed network as it strives to protect patient safety in updating its patient identification protocols.
RightPatient’s flexible nature allows it to be used in a range of settings within healthcare, including mobile, self-service, and bedside authentications. This level of versatility enables the platform to provide accurate patient identification and makes it easily scalable as the enterprise expands on the platform’s deployment — just two of the reasons why Archbold Memorial Hospital decided to implement RightPatient.
“We are excited about the opportunity to provide Archbold Memorial Hospital the ability to increase patient identification accuracy with our RightPatient biometrics patient safety and data integrity solution that helps reduce duplicate medical records and eliminate fraud and medical identity theft at the point of service,” said M2SYS Technology president Michael Trader. “We employed our decade of human recognition experience from around the world to innovate this patent pending platform that seamlessly blends with existing electronic health record systems and connects big data and knowledge infrastructure to deliver safe care. The solution will help Archbold to reduce duplicate medical records and eliminate medical identity theft, protecting unauthorized access to sensitive patient data. Patient misidentification in healthcare continues to cause avoidable mistakes that directly impact safety while adding unnecessary costs. We support Archbold’s choice of our ubiquitous patient identity platform to ensure that the right patient is identified, every time, from any location.”
