Georgia University Health Care System Partnered with RightPatient for Biometric Patient ID System

Georgia: Georgia University Health Care System has implemented RightPatient biometric patient identification system to prevent duplicate medical records, frauds and patient identification errors. The integration of RightPatient into existing universal health care system would provide unique ability to minimize potential patient registration errors.

Through this biometric facility, patients can click their picture & the platform of Universal Health Care System identifies the patient record thereby, retrieving correct medical record and maintaining data integrity. The uniqueness of biometric lies in the fact that patient does not have to touch the device to be identified, ensuring a safe, hygienic environment that supports hospital infection control.

TechSci Research depicts that in order to increase patient identification accuracy, prevent duplicate medical record & heighten patient safety, this technology would play a vital role in health care domain. It would also eliminate write-offs associated with patient fraud which severely affect quality of care and healthcare costs for the patients.

According to the recent report published by TechSci Research, “Global Biometrics Market By Type (Fingerprint Recognition, Facial Recognition, Hand/Palm Recognition, Iris Scanner, Voice Recognition, Vein Scanner & Others), By End Use Sector, By Region, Competition Forecast and Opportunities, 2011 – 2021” the global biometrics market is projected to cross USD24.8 billion by 2021. Fingerprint recognition biometric systems are the most preferred type of biometric systems used across the globe, owing to their ease of use, low cost, high speed and accurate results. However, in terms of growth, vein scanner biometrics systems segment is anticipated to outpace fingerprint recognition biometrics systems over the next five years.geo
