Hugh Chatham Adopts Star Trek Technology with the Use of Palm Identify to Prevent Medical ID Theft
Date:10/5/2009

MOORESVILLE, N.C., Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- With medical identity theft becoming a growing industry concern, Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital has chosen to implement Palm Identify, a software application developed by Biz Technology Solutions, Inc (BTS). The primary purpose of the new solution is to enhance patient security, while improving the patient admissions process.

Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital is a private, not-for-profit hospital located in the wine country of western NC. The hospital's current slogan is "Our Region's Choice for Technology and Care" and believes that being on the forefront of this new patient technology will only strengthen their statement.

According to the upcoming FTC Red Flag Rules, hospitals are required to implement an ID theft prevention solution by November 1, 2009. In all hospital organizations, it is not uncommon for a patient to use the ID of another to gain access to healthcare benefits. This new proactive approach chosen by Hugh Chatham will prevent these types of cases and, in the end, enhance patient safety throughout the patient's visit at the hospital.

Palm Identify is distinctive because of the cutting edge technology used to identify patients on arrival and its ease of use. Similar to fingerprints, each person has a unique vein pattern in the palm of their hand. Even identical twins will have a different palm vein patterns. Palm Identify makes use of Fujitsu's palm scanners to capture this unique pattern and assigns this identifier to the patient's medical record during the initial visit to the hospital. Patients are then quickly scanned on all reoccurring visits which validates the patient and their medical record.

During each scan the device transmits an invisible light similar to the light from a TV remote control to capture the vein pattern. This results in an ID verification system that is 100 times more accurate than the average fingerprint capture. The palm scan is almost instant which make it very easy to use for both the staff and patients.

This type of technology was once considered something only seen on TV when Spock from Star Trek waved his hand to gain access. Now hospitals such as Hugh Chatham are hoping to use this technology so that their patients can "live long and prosper".
