Michael Trader: Biometrics and patient identification

Joined recently by Michael Trader, the Co-Founder and President of Right Patient.


Why is now an opportune time for healthcare organizations to investigate the adoption of more secure, accurate patient identification solutions?

Can you please explain how your biometric patient identification solution works and what distinct advantages it offers over more traditional forms of patient identification?

Why is it important for healthcare organizations to invest in a patient identification solution that can be expanded for ID at each and every patient touchpoint?

How does the use of biometrics for patient identification help increase medical data integrity and why is this important in the context of EMPI, interoperability initiatives, and health information exchanges?

What impact has RightPatient made for the healthcare organizations that have deployed it for patient identification?

As more hospitals evaluate the use of biometrics for patient identification, what are the most important question to ask a biometric vendor during due diligence?
