Metroplex Health System implements PatientSecure biometric patient identification solution

 

In an effort to reduce paperwork, improve accuracy, and prevent identity theft, Metroplex Health System in Killeen, Texas is now using Imprivata PatientSecure, a patient identification solution that creates a direct match between individual patients and their unique medical records across different clinical systems using palm vein biometric information.

“Using biometric identification helps us ensure the privacy of our patients,” commented Carlyle Walton, president and CEO of Metroplex Health System. “It also improves convenience and enhances record accuracy by preventing duplications.”

Just last month, Adventist Health System (AHS), one of the largest faith-based healthcare systems in the United States, deployed Imprivata PatientSecure. “One of the first and most important steps in the care delivery process is accurate patient identification. PatientSecure gives our facilities an advanced tool to digitally link each patient to their unique personal health record,” said Brent Snyder, chief information officer for Adventist Health System.

PatientSecure can also help if a registered patient without identification arrives at the medical facilty unconscious or unable to communicate as the device can quickly identify the individual, open their electronic health record, and alert medical professionals to medical history, allergies and current medications.
