FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PatientWorks Corporation Achieves Certification for Imprivata PatientSecure Integration
Integrated solution allows for a single patient identifier across the healthcare
enterprise for fast patient self-service check-in on PatientWorks kiosks and tablets
CARY, NORTH CAROLINA – July 14, 2016— PatientWorks Corporation, a patient self-service check-in solutions company, today announced that it has successfully achieved Imprivata Ready! certification with the industry leading positive patient identification solution, Imprivata PatientSecure. The certification awarded by Imprivata® (NYSE: IMPR), the healthcare IT security company, covers the integration between PatientWorks’ self-service check-in solutions KioskWorks® and CheckinWorks® and Imprivata PatientSecure® to enable positive patient identification at self-service registration kiosks.
“Without the right tools in place to guarantee positive identification, healthcare will always be challenged to reap the full clinical and financial benefits of digital health technologies such as EHRs and self-service kiosks,” said Clay Ritchey, Chief Marketing Officer and GM of Imprivata PatientSecure Products Group. “By enabling deep integrations with these technologies, we’re ensuring that patients are accurately identified and experience the best possible patient registration workflows, ultimately improving patient adoption of self-service kiosks as well as patient safety and revenue cycle performance.”
Imprivata PatientSecure eliminates the need for providers and patients to input patient information manually by integrating with KioskWorks kiosks to make the single patient identifier available through kiosk registration. Kiosks identify patients through a palm vein scan, rather than requiring manual input of patient information, saving time and improving efficiency by eliminating the need for unnecessary paperwork.
“The use of biometric identification at registration kiosks is a great addition to our solutions and helps transform the entire registration and intake process,” said Larry Haworth, CEO of PatientWorks. “We have integrated the Imprivata PatientSecure palm-vein biometrics with our kiosks and tablet self-service check-in solutions, speeding the patient identification process and assuring positive patient identification. This improves patient safety, overall registration throughput, and ultimately, enhances the entire patient experience.”
Imprivata PatientSecure is the biometric patient identification platform that uses palm vein recognition biometrics to accurately identify patients. Through an easy enrollment process, Imprivata PatientSecure creates a 1:1 link between patients’ unique palm vein scans and their individual medical records. Once enrolled, a patient simply scans their palm and Imprivata PatientSecure quickly and accurately identifies the patient and automatically retrieves their unique medical record.
PatientWorks® provides Self-Service Patient Check-in Kiosk and Tablet solutions. KioskWorks® provides a patient centric, customizable user touch screen environment for self-check-in, co-payment processing, interactive wayfinding, event calendar, patient education and fundraising opportunities. The Patient Xpress module captures electronic signatures as well as patient photos and scans insurance cards and/or driver licenses. The data is merged onto the healthcare provider’s forms and automatically sent to their imaging system and/or routed to the Registrar. Queue Navigator manages patient volumes, wait times and check in compliance, whether patients check in through KioskWorks® or directly with registration staff. Admitting personnel can manage patient check-in remotely in real-time at the department level or across the entire enterprise.
