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

se that even identical twins can be easily identified.  

"We want to continue to offer advanced options such as this for our patients," says Jody Jenner, CEO. "Systems like PatientSecure™ contribute to Broadlawns' position as the only Level 6 facility in the state of Iowa and in the top 1.5% of hospitals in the country."  

Not only does PatientSecure™ protect each patient's identity, but it will quicken the registration process and therefore allow patients to efficiently receive appropriate care.

"We know improving efficiency is key to increasing patient satisfaction and quality of care," says Dr. Vincent Mandracchia, Broadlawns' Chief Medical Officer.  "Being efficient also supports Broadlawns' goal of delivering better patient care at a lower cost. PatientSecure™ will be central to our continued success in managing medical records with patient security in mind."

In case of an emergency situation, if the patient is unable to register on their own due to being unconscious or in pain, the palm scanners can easily pull the necessary electronic medical records in order to best treat the patient. Because Broadlawns delivers care to patients speaking 44 different languages, the palm scanners will also lessen the possible translation errors during the registration process.

How it works

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. Every person has a unique vein pattern that does not change so it will reduce the chances of identity theft or misidentification. The initial scan takes less than a minute to conduct and even less time with each visit following. The scan generates a number that corresponds with B
