Patient safety has it's own week. Here's why.
Patient Safety Awareness Week - March 10–16 - is an annual event that brings patient safety into laser focus.
But at Imprivata, ensuring patient safety is a constant. We believe that a critical component of patient safety is positively identifying patients and linking them to their correct medical record. Only then, clinicians can be confident that they are treating patients based on accurate and complete medical histories – in other words, safely.
Imprivata PatientSecure is a biometrics-based technology that helps avoid clinical and financial consequences when patients are misidentified. Users acknowledge that its biggest benefit is patient safety.
Listen in to this short blogcast with Clinical Workflow Specialist, Claire Reilly and Senior Product Marketing Manager, Rebecca Slisz as they highlight patient safety risks and how biometrics can help mitigate them.
