Biometrics in Healthcare

Improve patient care and safety, clinician workflows and the overall healthcare experience with fast, accurate identity verification and authentication

Remedy Pain Points Across Healthcare With Biometric Authentication & Verification

Healthcare providers today are not only short-staffed and overworked, they also suffer from constant challenges that extend well beyond tending to patients. 

Biometric technology — such as facial recognition and fingerprint technologies — deliver the most reliable identity assurance. They’re ideal tools to alleviate many healthcare challenges with fast, accurate identity authentication and verification.

Biometrics for Patient Identification

Patient misidentification costs the healthcare industry billions of dollars every year. But the problem goes beyond cost — it can be a matter of life and death. 

Biometrics offer irrefutable proof of identity to ensure the right treatments for the right patient in every situation, improving patient care and safety. 

Using an individual’s unique biometric markers for patient identification, healthcare providers can confidently attach one face or fingerprint to one patient file to support patient record accuracy and combat medical and insurance fraud. 

Biometrics for Patient Check-In

Improve the patient experience and free up clinicians with secure, self-service biometric powered patient check-in.

Biometric-based patient check-ins are fast, accurate and simple. AI-powered facial recognition — combined with an intuitive patient engagement platform and customizable self-service kiosk — enables a touchless, hygienic patient intake process. This improves throughput, reduces wait times, drives operational efficiency and greatly elevates the patient experience.

Biometrics for Single Sign-On (SSO)

Healthcare organizations need solutions that speed clinicians’ access to patient data, support data security and privacy compliance, eliminate headaches around password management and drastically improve productivity and the user experience. Biometric authentication technology for single sign-on can address these challenges.  

Biometric SSO enables healthcare professionals to sign on once using their face or finger. They are then granted secure access across various applications, systems, spaces and places throughout their shift. 

Using biometric SSO in healthcare substantially increases security and improves user productivity while saving costs associated with painful password management

Biometrics for Electronic Prescribing for Controlled Substances (EPCS)

The Electronic Prescribing for Controlled Substances (EPCS) process requires multi-factor authentication (MFA) to verify healthcare providers every time they prescribe and refill a controlled substance electronically. 

Biometrics in healthcare support MFA requirements and provide fast, secure and accurate identity verification and authentication to improve clinical workflows. This not only makes the process more convenient — it also provides an audit trail for accountability, helps support regulatory compliance and mitigates fraud.
