Becker’s Hospital Review: Why positive patient identification is the key to improving revenue cycle efficiency and reducing denied claims

The broad reimbursement changes in healthcare make it critical for hospitals to focus on improving quality of care, patient satisfaction, and operational efficiencies. As a result, hospitals across the country are exploring ways to reduce patient identification errors — a problem that poses serious risk to patient safety, undermines patient satisfaction, and leads to revenue loss. This recent executive brief by Becker’s Hospital Review examines how implementing biometric authentication, such as palm vein recognition, can help achieve all three of these goals.
