Patient identification

Imprivata PatientSecure uses biometric identification to achieve positive patient identification

 

Imprivata PatientSecure is a positive patient identification solution that creates a 1:1 match between individual patients and their unique medical records, accurately retrieving patients’ digital health records using biometric identification across all points of care. Patients simply place their hand on an easy-to-use palm reader and the Imprivata PatientSecure system matches their unique palm vein patterns to their individual patient record by integrating directly with their healthcare facility’s EMR, ADT, EMPI, and other HIS systems. This simple scanning and biometric identification process improves patient identification by:

Palm vein recognition is one of the safest, most accurate, and most user-friendly patient identification methods.

 

Imprivata PatientSecure offers:

Highly accurate biometric identification

Imprivata PatientSecure replaces traditional patient identifiers with biometric identification, a far more accurate positive patient identification system. Palm vein patterns remain stable throughout our lifetimes and cannot be duplicated or forged. The solution can even be used to positively identify Jane and John Doe patients in critical care. 

High patient adoption rates

Palm vein identification has a high patient success and adoption rate. Patients appreciate the non-intrusive palm scanning process that does not require them to share their Social Security number or other sensitive patient identifiers with hospital staff.  

“The feedback from the patients about Imprivata PatientSecure has been extremely positive. The compliance rate of our patients has been 99+ percent. They love it! They think this is the greatest thing we have ever done. They really appreciate not having to give all of those patient identifiers each time that they come in.”

Easy deployment

Imprivata PatientSecure is easy to deploy and integrates seamlessly with all leading EMR vendors, self-service kiosk solutions, and IT infrastructures. Imprivata helps customers through every step of their deployment and enrollment process, providing continuing support for customers’ evolving needs. 

Easy patient enrollment and identification process

The initial Imprivata PatientSecure enrollment process is quick and easy, requiring roughly the same amount of time as a routine paper check-in process. The palm vein scanner is easy-to-use and less intrusive than traditional patient identifiers, making it an ideal form of identification for any patient, at any point of care.

“Use of the Imprivata PatientSecure system has resulted in fewer registration errors, fewer medical record numbers that are duplicates, and fewer instances where patients are using other people’s insurance card – all of these resulted in fewer medical errors.”

Cindy Noonan, Chief Operating Officer,
Valley Care Health System 

Vastly improved patient experience and reduced wait times

Imprivata PatientSecure allows patients to access the right care, quickly. The solution streamlines check-in and registration processes by using fast and accurate biometric identification to retrieve patients’ medical records. When deployed with a self-service kiosk solution, Imprivata PatientSecure can reduce wait times even more significantly. Overall, Imprivata PatientSecure improves patient satisfaction, streamlines care delivery, and improves important patient satisfaction measures (such as HCAPS scores) that impact hospitals' Meaningful Use targets. 

High ROI and low maintenance costs

The Imprivata PatientSecure scanner is easy to deploy, maintain, and clean. The biometric identification solution requires little to no maintenance – and, if it does, Imprivata is there to help. Imprivata PatientSecure provides significant ROI and improves the efficiency of clinical staff, allowing them to spend more time focused on their patients and less time dealing with paperwork or ineffective technologies.

“There’s a lot of moving parts in the revenue cycle and this front end component [Imprivata PatientSecure] is one of several items that make it more efficient on the operational side.”
