Resolute Health, based in New Braunfels, Texas, has launched a health security smart card to facilitate patient registration.
Resolute contracted with LifeMed ID to implement the SecureReg Patient Identity Management System. With the Resolute Health BeneFIT smart card, a patient can check into either the Resolute Health Center for Wellbeing or the Resolute Health Family Urgent Care Center and be accurately identified.
The new system will automate the registration process and authenticates a patient’s ID upon check-in, pulling up the correct medical record. Once signed in, the patient is automatically checked in at different registration points throughout the center. The system enables Resolute Health to institute a paperless registration process, which decreases patient wait times.
Along with accurate matching of health records, the smart card can provide first responders with critical patient information such as prescriptions and medical history in emergency situations. This information can then be sent to the ER to help staff prepare for the patient’s arrival.
