NYU Lutheran implements Imprivata patient ID solution


Brooklyn, N.Y.-based NYU Lutheran has recently launched a new electronic health record (EHR) platform as well as Imprivata’s PatientSecure, a biometric palm-scanning technology that can identify patients at registration.

The platform integrates with the health system’s 22 inpatient and outpatient care centers including NYU Lutheran Medical Center, NYU Lutheran Family Health Centers and affiliated faculty group practice offices in the NYU Langone Health System. Officials say the goal is better patient-provider communication, improved access to medical records and for patients to share medical history with providers.

Planning and development took more than a year, with the health system’s IT, clinical and administrative departments analyzed the existing EHR systems and created workflows tailored to the patient population.

Funding was provided partly by a $29.2-million grant from New York State Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment program.

“The integration of NYU Lutheran and these electronic health record innovations have created an efficient, safe and convenient way we can communicate and deliver healthcare,” Bret J. Rudy, MD, hospital executive director and senior vice president at NYU Langone said in a statement.

“We created a seamless way to collect information that respects patients’ time as well as their confidentiality,” he added. “The end result is improved patient satisfaction and reduced costs. This is an exciting new chapter in how patients experience healthcare at NYU Lutheran.”

Earlier this month, it was announced that Florida Hospital is using PatientSecure biometric identification technology to decrease paperwork, improve accuracy and prevent identity theft.
