In their just released research study, “The National Patient Identification Crisis,” the Ponemon Institute finds that patient misidentification can result in medical errors, denied medical claims, and costly clean-up of duplicate and overlaid medical records. Attend this webinar to learn the findings of this study and the implications of patient misidentification on hospitals. Highlights include:  

  • Clinicians spend up to 30 minutes or more per shift searching for accurate patient charts
  • 35% of hospital denied claims are the direct result of patient identification errors
  • Positive patient identification can dramatically reduce medical errors and revenue loss
