Plus, RightPatient also offers the flexibility to extend accurate patient identification to any patient touchpoint that requires patient identification accuracy to ensure optimal outcomes.”

Bethesda Health will be using RightPatient’s biometric system in both the inpatient and outpatient registration centers of Bethesda Hospital East and Bethesda Hospital West.
