Sentara Healthcare recently teamed up with health security firm Impritiva to improve the patient identification process with biometric patient identification technology.
The Norfolk, Virginia-based health organization is relying on Impritiva's PatientSecure biometric palm vein identity authentication to identify over 700 000 patients in its roster. The organization's main goal is to give patients quicker access to their medical records and other key info while making privacy and security a top priority.
In the past, the health organization found patient identification accuracy and time spent identifying said patients a challenge as the process was rarely fast and seamless. Its new partnership with Impritiva aims to cut time and cost while increasing accuracy and security for patients looking to access health data.
