RightPatient® Partners with The Lava Group to Bring Accurate Patient Identification Solution to Ireland

Industry’s Most Versatile, Cloud-Based Biometric Patient ID and Patient Safety Platform Now Available to Ireland’s Healthcare Providers

Atlanta, GA (April 19, 2016) RightPatient® announced today a new partnership with The Lava Group to offer the industry’s most advanced and scalable biometric patient identification and patient safety system to healthcare providers in Ireland. With extensive experience in biometric system integration and a strong portfolio of connected health technologies, The Lava Group will distribute RightPatient® to healthcare providers seeking to increase patient safety, reduce duplicate medical records, and prevent medical identity theft and fraud.

Accurate patient identification, improving care quality, controlling healthcare costs, and providing a unified view of patient data across healthcare settings continue to be persistent global challenges. Accurate, complete patient data is vital to delivering high-quality and cost-effective care. In the absence of an integrated view of patient data, clinicians continue to struggle with inaccurate and incomplete information, and accurate patient identification. These problems are not unique to any specific country but are universal truths as the rise of chronic disease and an aging population strain healthcare budgets around the world.

“Our strategic partnership with RightPatient® provides us the unique opportunity to offer their cloud-based biometric patient identification and patient safety solution to healthcare providers throughout Ireland,” said Gareth Morrison, CEO of The Lava Group. “Combined with our experience in biometric system integration and the rising demand from healthcare providers to implement stronger patient identification technology, this partnership will be a great step towards ensuring accurate patient recognition across Ireland.”

“The Lava Group will be an integral piece of our strategy to solve the global patient identity challenge,” commented Michael Trader, Co-Founder and President of RightPatient®. “Accurate patient identification across the care continuum must be accurate and linked to the entire health history in order to support quality care at an affordable cost. Without an accurate patient identification foundation, reliable care coordination is unachievable, revenue cycle management is inefficient, and outcomes cannot be accurately measured.”
