Palm vein biometrics uses near-infrared light to create a “vein map” of a patient’s palm which is then linked to their unique electronic medical record. Using RightPatient® with a palm vein recognition reader, patients provide their date of birth, scan their palm, and the system automatically pulls up their electronic medical record.
100% safe. The “near-infrared” light used in the palm vein recognition scanner is the same technology used in everyday items, like your TV remote control. Palm vein biometrics has been tested and certified to be safe for use in healthcare as a patient identification tool.
