Health care systems have been slow to embrace biometric identification technology for patients, but business is growing. Hospitals are starting to notice the potential value of using biometrics for patient identification: less fraud, fewer duplicate records, shorter wait times. Health care companies that have taken the biometric plunge using M2SYS Technology’s RightPatient platform say most patients don’t seem to mind. Instead of resisting the technology, they readily sign on when they understand it is meant to protect their privacy and their medical records. M2SYS Technology’s Michael Trader and Novant Health’s Melanie Wilson chat with Regarding ID’s Gina Jordan about biometrics in health care.
