Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) August 18, 2009 -- Identification Systems Group (ISG), a nationwide network of identification and card issuance sales and service experts, announced today it has officially pledged support for Project SwipeIT, a healthcare initiative through the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA).

Project SwipeIT seeks to encourage widespread use of standardized, machine readable patient identification (ID) cards that are compliant with the guidelines issued by the Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI). The intent of the WEDI Health ID Card initiative is to enable automated and interoperable identification for healthcare and benefit purposes using standardized ID cards. The card serves as the key to obtain information and initiative transactions. Project SwipeIT's goal is increased industry commitment to deployment by 2010.

"For the healthcare industry, the benefits of Project SwipeIT are enormous," said Roger Sigler, Executive Director of the ISG. "Projected savings in time and reduction of duplicate medical records provide a large ROI for all provider organizations. The ISG association provides affordable and easy to implement systems for issuing WEDI compliant cards, and reading these cards, as well as driver's licenses and other government ID cards. The projected ROI for providers is very compelling."

The ISG network offers decades of experience in providing card issuing and reading solutions to the healthcare industry. Providers and health insurers can now easily issue branded patient ID cards that meet the WEDI specification. Not only does the branded card offer marketing benefits for the provider, but also faster registration, less errors and expense, and reduced duplicate records. The unique ISG Rapid Registration system features the ISG SmartReg reader, which reads any WEDI compliant card, driver's license or government issued ID. "The ISG Rapid Registration card system is application independent and interoperable with any practice management software package to automatically fill in Search, Enrollment and Eligibility Verification screens," stated Mr. Sigler.

Today, there is a strong focus on industry adoption of Electronic Health Records (EHR). The standardized patient ID card and ISG card reader are a vital core need for EHRs, allowing for accurate data that cannot be duplicated. ISG members have pledged support for this important healthcare program to streamline processes, eliminate costs, and reduce human error with electronically readable ID cards.
