Voice biometrics anti-fraud solutions provider Authentify has revealed plans to work with LifeMed ID on combining mobile patient authentication with automated registration workflow for patient identity validation.The partnership has seen the firms provide a downloadable mobile application for a patient, serving as an identity token at registration to ensure accurate identity at all points of service.Once staff enrolls a patient, the patient will then download Authentify's voice recognition application to their personal mobile device. A unique QR code is generated instantly by the LifeMed ID solution each time a patient presents their mobile device, enabling the automated registration process to be complete within seconds.The LifeMed ID solution uses providers' point of service (POS) terminals and requires no other form of ID to automate the provider's registration workflow process.The “Bring Your Own Device” solution aims at improving providers' registration efficiency with the benefits of eliminating the creation of duplicate records, preventing fraud and billing mistakes, increasing the privacy of patient information and not requiring change in the provider's systems.”LifeMed ID's ߪ patient identity add-on solution automatically validates the identity of the patient and always matches and invokes the correct medical record at registration to increase patient safety, satisfaction and care outcomes while optimizing providers' workflow capabilities,” said David Batchelor, CEO at LifeMed ID. “By utilizing a patient's mobile device as a validated BYOD identity token, healthcare providers can maximize patient adoption and increase data accuracy and revenue without risk.”Jeff Wilberg, director of Business Development at Authentify, added, “Authentify's voice biometrics and mobile applications, paired with LifeMed ID's automated patient identity solution, allows Authentify to expand into the healthcare market by offering a solution that helps solve the problems of accurate patient identification, record matching and patient authentication from any medical facility with a simple issuance process and minimal technical impact.”Earlier this month, Authentify announced that its SecureCallCenter tool will be available through mobile apps to help prevent fraud by imposters and protect call center representatives from social engineering attempts.
