Podcast Features RightPatient® President Michael Trader Discussing Biometrics and Patient Identification

using biometrics for patient identification in healthcare

The rising use of using biometrics for patient identification in healthcare has hospitals curious about the technology.

Our thanks goes out to Kelley Hill and Terry Baker from Healthcare Tech Talk for inviting our own Michael Trader to speak about the rising use of biometrics for patient identification in healthcare. Kelley and Terry recently hosted a podcast to learn more about how the use of biometric identification technology is helping to:

1. Increase patient safety in healthcare

2. Enhance the patient experience

3. Reduce fraud and medical ID theft

4. Facilitate the easier and more fluid interoperability exchange of health data across HIEs and IDNs

5. Ensure that patients are accurately identified across the healthcare continuum, especially in mobile and remote settings

This 40 minute healthcare podcast is not only an excellent way to familiarize yourself with how biometrics is used for accurate patient identification in healthcare, but to also learn more about our RightPatient® advanced patient identity management and data integrity solution, designed and built to ensure 100% patient ID accuracy, strengthen patient safety, improve the patient experience, and increase patient data integrity. In fact, we have a library of healthcare podcasts and resources that you can visit to learn more about a host of topics related to patient identification in healthcare.

Our thanks go out to Terry and Kelley from Healthcare Tech Talk for the opportunity to discuss how biometrics is used for patient identification in healthcare and to also offer listeners a little bit of history on our parent company, M2SYS Technology, and how working in the global biometric identification management industry sparked the idea to design and develop our RightPatient® platform.
