Improving patient safety and experience with Imprivata PatientSecure and CTS

Proper patient identification is the key to patient safety and effective revenue cycle performance. With the right tools in place to guarantee positive identification, hospitals can reap the full clinical and financial benefits of digital health technology from EHRs and kiosks. Integrating positive patient identification with these systems enables customers to ensure they get patient identification right each and every time. The risk of patient misidentification – and subsequent medical errors – from duplicate medical records or overlays increases with each system that requires manual input of patient identification. As leading healthcare systems encounter multiple EHRs and registration systems, using a single biometric identifier to link a patient’s identity across multiple systems and sites can reduce the risk of misidentification and medical errors.
