SmartID and SmartSwipe
SmartID prevents patient identity errors, reduces duplicate records, and increases patient safety by bringing advanced probabilistic matching tools to the patient record search and selection process. Results are sorted based on the likelihood that records match and presented in a ranked and color-coded display, so that you only need to review the top choices and select the correct patient record. SmartID ensures that Registration and Scheduling staff members select the right patient record, every time.
- Improves accuracy of patient identification
- Increases patient safety
- Reduces record duplication
SmartSwipe, our innovative card reader technology, extends the benefits of SmartID to further streamline the patient registration process. With just a swipe of a driver’s license in a SmartSwipe device, your staff or patients can complete the registration process quickly and accurately. SmartSwipe saves time for your staff and patients. It identifies your patients by reading information (e.g. name, date of birth) from the bar code or magnetic stripe of a driver’s license and locating that patient in your Master Person Index (MPI). If the patient is new to your health system, he or she can be added to your registration system automatically.
