About 10 percent of patients are misidentified when they present for care, and these misidentification events can have detrimental consequences in terms of cost, quality, patient safety, and patient satisfaction. To mitigate the risks associated with poor patient identification, healthcare organizations must equip the people involved with better tools to do their jobs by engaging technologies that dramatically reduce the likelihood of error. Biometrics is such a technology. The Imprivata palm vein patient identification solution uses near infrared light to read the vein pattern in the palm of a person’s hand and then creates a one-to-one link between the pattern and the patient’s medical record, reducing the likelihood of patient misidentification to almost zero.

After This Webinar You'll Be Able To:

  1. Describe how patient misidentification happens
  2. Summarize the impact of misidentification on patient safety and the organization’s revenue flow
  3. Evaluate current options for biometric patient identification and their benefits to your own healthcare organization
