Transforming the Patient Experience: One Face at a Time
Biometrics is an emerging trend in healthcare, specifically regarding patient identification. As the market leader in patient and provider identity management, NextGate leveraged biometrics, neural network technology and machine learning to develop an Image Based Identification solution for facial recognition.
NextGate’s facial recognition software algorithmically compares images and even accounts for variances such as facial hair, lighting, and picture angles. The in-depth comparison increases patient matching accuracy, and when applied, can simplify registration, flag fraudulent activity, and eliminate the creation of duplicate records.
The vendor neutral solution works with the picture quality from tablets, smartphones and other readily available cameras, driving down implementation costs. The facial recognition software is integrated with NextGate’s EMPI, but can also be configured to work with any existing infrastructure, enabling easy deployment in various environments like personal devices, self-services kiosks and the Emergency Room.
