LifeMed ID announced the launch of the SecureReg product at HIMSS 2013 in New Orleans. SecureReg delivers patient identity, patient workflow, health IT interoperability and continuity of care for health care providers.
LifeMed ID’s platform is designed to prevent duplicate medical records and overlays, connecting disparate health IT systems and enabling portability of patient records.
SecureReg Patient Identity System manages patients through the registration process. The system automates registration, authenticates and identifies patients, and automatically invokes the correct medical record.
The need for accurate patient identity occurs at the federal state and health care provider level. As electronic health information becomes more prevalent, the accurate and efficient matching of patients to health records is vital to the quality of health care.
Incorrect matching can result in medical errors and compromise privacy and security. It results in avoidable expenses and decreased quality of medical care. More than ever, it is the top priority for health care providers to ensure patient safety is delivered at all stages of patient care.
