RightPatient - Healthcare Biometric Patient Identification RightPatient®

UCSD’s RMAS Department Deploys RightPatient® Biometric Patient Identity Management Solution

biometric patient identification to improve patient safety and medical data integrity

UCSD’s Moore’s Cancer Center has implemented the RightPatient® patient identity management and data integrity solution.

Today we announced that the Department of Radiation Medicine & Applied Sciences (RMAS) at UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center has implemented a customized version of the RightPatient® patient identification solution to accurately identify patients as a safety precaution prior to receiving radiation treatment. Originally deploying a biometric device that required physical contact by patients, RMAS staff switched to non-contact iris recognition due to the fact that it more effectively supports patient safety and infection control protocols. Due to the fact that cancer radiation treatments can be lethal if not administered accurately, RMAS staff needed to implement a fail safe patient identification solution that offered the flexibility to capture patient photos and a biometric credential that is linked to their medical record and can ambiguously identify them throughout their entire life – RightPatient® with iris biometrics filled their need perfectly by ensuring accurate care delivery while maintaining a hygienic and safe environment for patients. We continue to be encouraged at the versatility and variety of our RightPatient® biometric patient identity management and data integrity solution deployments within the healthcare industry to protect patient safety and ensure accurate care delivery. RMAS staff plan to closely evaluate the effectiveness of the RightPatient® solution for possible future expansion to other areas around the medical campus and are pleased with positive patient reaction to the technology thus far as a tool to protect their identities and ensure they receive proper care.
