Vecna and HT Systems Announce Partnership to Deliver Biometric On-Site Patient Authentication

Vecna, an innovative provider of patient self-service solutions, and HT Systems, a healthcare technology leader in patient identity management, today announced a strategic partnership to deliver a biometric patient self-service authentication solution.

HT Systems’ PatientSecure® is a biometric identification management system that provides positive patient identification by distinguishing individual palm vein structures. The system then retrieves a patient’s correct medical record within the registration system. When combined with Vecna’s On-Site Registration solution, a patient can check-in to their appointments by scanning their palm, and update important information.

“A comprehensive patient registration and authentication solution maximizes an organization’s resources,” comments Ben Bau, Vice President and General Manager of Patient Self-Service Solutions at Vecna. “This joint solution with HT Systems allows an organization to quickly validate patient registration information prior to billing to reduce registration errors and fraud, and eliminate problems associated with duplicate records in the Master Patient Index.”

“We are excited to partner with Vecna,” said Carl Bertrams, SVP-Sales & Marketing for HT Systems. “Our PatientSecure biometric patient identification system is a natural complement to Vecna’s On-Site Registration solution. Improved patient safety, enhanced patient satisfaction, reduced exposure to identity theft/insurance card fraud, and streamlined scheduling and patient check-in, are all proven outcomes of these leading-edge technologies, which will only be enhanced by the synergy of this partnership.”

Vecna and HT Systems will be exhibiting at HIMSS from February 24 – 27 in booth #4344. To schedule a meeting at the event please click here.
