Delivers On-Site Patient Recognition with Palm Vein Verification

HIMSS14

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. & FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif.--()--Vecna, an innovative provider of patient self-service solutions, and Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc., a leader in front-end solution technology, today announced a strategic partnership to deliver a complete biometric patient authentication solution.

Fujitsu’s PalmSecure® technology uses a near-infrared light to capture a patient’s palm vein pattern, generating a unique biometric template for identification verification. Vecna’s On-Site Registration solution enables patients to update demographics, pay bills, verify insurance, and print directions to their care provider. This joint solution reduces organizational expenses associated with manual data entry, prevents fraudulent behavior at the point-of-service, and reduces problems associated with duplicate records in the Master Patient Index.

“Our On-Site Registration kiosks optimize patient communication at the point-of-service,” comments Ben Bau, Vice President and General Manager of Patient Self-Service Solutions at Vecna. “By working with Fujitsu’s PalmSecure solution, we’re able to complement barcode scanning, manual authentication, and credit card authorization with a biometric identification solution to offer patients and their providers valuable time-saving services.”

“Since palm vein patterns are unique to each person, it is impossible to forge an individual’s identity,” says Randy Fox, Vice President, Currency Handling and Identity Product Solutions, Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc. “Also, because this innovative technology is highly accurate, healthcare systems are provided with an extra layer of necessary identity verification protection.”

Vecna and Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc. will be exhibiting at HIMSS in booth #652 from February 24 – 27. For more information or to schedule a meeting please click here.
