Broadlawns Installs First-in-Iowa Biometric Patient Identity Security System
Date:7/6/2011

DES MOINES, Iowa, July 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Broadlawns Medical Center is reading palms in order to increase patient safety. As a part of Broadlawns' facilities modernization plan and commitment to be the Iowa leader in Electronic Medical Records implementation, the Medical Center will be using palm scanners to register and check-in patients. The new system, called PatientSecure™, was unveiled to the public today at Broadlawns Medical Center as part of a week-long launch.

Employees are being encouraged to enroll this week so when patients begin to use the system, hospital staff and employees are already familiar with the cutting edge technology. Reporters got a first look at the hardware and the process and experienced the ease of enrolling themselves. Broadlawns has made the system the cornerstone of its continuing efforts to make records secure.  Thirty-five palm scanners are being installed.

"This is cutting edge technology," says David Wiener, President of HT Systems, who demonstrated for reporters. "This is the 20th installation of the system in a major medical center like Broadlawns. It might seem a like something out of a futuristic novel but this system improves service for patients while increasing security and efficiency."

The palm scanners use a harmless near-infrared light to illuminate the vein pattern in a patient's hand and then uses a biometric template to correspond with the patient's medical records. (See "How it works" below.) Every person has a unique vein pattern that does not change so it will reduce the chances of identity theft or misidentification.  PatientSecure™ is considered 100 times more accurate than fingerprints and is so preci
