Archbold Memorial Hospital has adopted RightPatient, M2SYS Healthcare Solutions' biometrics patient identification management solution designed to enhance patient safety and medical data integrity.

RightPatient aims to provide a precise patient ID system that allows the hospital's staff perform a rapid biometric search to immediately pull up a patient's medical record.

Before it selected M2SYS, Archbold Memorial Hospital was seeking an identification matching system that could help to reduce human errors, control patient identity fraud, stop fraudsters from making duplicate medical records, and decrease billing errors.

Following more research, the hospital saw that iris biometrics would provide multiple benefits, including patient identification speed, accuracy, hygiene, real-time de-duplication search capability, and data standardization.

M2SYS Technology president Michael Trader, stated : "We are excited about the opportunity to provide Archbold Memorial Hospital the ability to increase patient identification accuracy with our RightPatient biometrics patient safety and data integrity solution that helps reduce duplicate medical records and eliminate fraud and medical identity theft at the point of service. We employed our decade of human recognition experience from around the world to innovate this patent pending platform that seamlessly blends with existing electronic health record systems and connects big data and knowledge infrastructure to deliver safe care. The solution will help Archbold to reduce duplicate medical records and eliminate medical identity theft, protecting unauthorized access to sensitive patient data. Patient misidentification in healthcare continues to cause avoidable mistakes that directly impact safety while adding unnecessary costs. We support Archbold s choice of our ubiquitous patient identity platform to ensure that the right patient is identified, every time, from any location."
