Healthcare System Invests in Scalable Biometric Platform to Accurately Identify Millions of Patients


M2SYS Healthcare Solutions
, a division of M2SYS Technology, today announced that Stuart, FL based Martin Health System has deployed the RightPatient™ iris biometrics patient identification solution. RightPatient™ is the industry's only multi-biometric patient identification platform and high-performance matching system that allows hospitals to instantly retrieve a patient's medical record following a fast iris biometric search.

With more than 500,000 annual patient visits across its two hospitals and numerous specialty centers and clinics, Martin Health needed a scalable patient identification matching system to prevent mix-ups, stop patient identity fraud, eliminate the creation of duplicate medical records, and reduce billing errors. Due to its advantages in speed, accuracy, hygiene, real-time de-duplication search capability, data standardization, and wide patient demographic applicability, Martin Health decided that RightPatient™ was the best fit for protecting patient safety. One of the key factors in the decision was RightPatient™'s innovative mechanism to support Martin Health's use of Citrix virtualization for its electronic health records system.

“The risks associated with misidentification jeopardize patient safety, so we wanted a solution that would mitigate these risks and add another layer of protection,“ said Carol Plato, assistant vice president of revenue cycle management for Martin Health System. “RightPatient™ was a perfect fit for us because it doesn't require physical contact, seamlessly communicates with our electronic health records software, and runs flawlessly over Citrix. Patients simply have their photo captured, the system matches their iris templates, and their medical record is automatically retrieved.”

“We are grateful for the opportunity to enable the Martin Health team to leverage our RightPatient™ iris biometrics solution to increase patient identification accuracy, reduce duplicate medical records, and heighten patient safety,” commented Michael Trader, president of M2SYS Technology. “Patient misidentification in healthcare can lead to incorrect medication distribution, duplicate diagnostic tests, and adverse health effects, jeopardizing patient safety and adding unnecessary costs. In addition, RightPatient™ protects patients from identity theft, which affects quality of care and healthcare costs.”
