Patient Identity and Security
Memorial Health System uses a fingerprint technology system to further enhance our patient experience. The technology will scan your fingerprint, making a biometric map that is added to your medical record. It simplifies patient registration and provides accurate patient identification.
How it Works
Our new technology uses biometric identification to verify your identity through your fingerprint. It’s harmless and stores the data pattern, not the actual fingerprint, connecting it to your medical record. It will be used at future visits to speed up your check-in process and protect your identity. It can be used on any patient five years of age or older.
- Once enrolled, registration will be much quicker at your next visit
- Increases patient safety, allowing secure access to your unique medical record and medical history
- Helps ensure privacy at time of registration
- Helps protect from identity and medical theft
