RightPatient® offer a free webinar on “Biometric Patient Identification Technology for Patient Safety” on September the 10th from 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. EDT.

One of the major debates within the healthcare industry revolves around patient identification and patient data integrity, especially when it comes to patient safety and security. Ask any healthcare professional about the impact of failing to correctly identify patients and the answer would be same. Misidentification of patients is a direct cause of preventable medication errors, transfusion errors, and testing errors. Preventable medical errors continue to persist as the #3 killer in the U.S. and claim the lives of more than 400,000 patients per year.

Top 5 Reasons to Visit M2SYS Healthcare Solutions at 2014 NAHAM Show

M2SYS Healthcare Solutions delivers innovative patient identification management and medical data integrity solutions.

M2SYS Healthcare Solutions will be in Booth #3307 at the 2014 NAHAM show.

Plan on attending this year’s National Association of Healthcare Access Management (NAHAM) show in Hollywood, Florida? My, how time flies. Seems like only last week we were chatting and networking with all of our NAHAM friends at the 2013 annual trade show and 2014’s conference is already upon us.

This is an exciting time to work in patient access management, isn’t it? Never before has there been so much emphasis and urgency on identifying and implementing modern patient identification management and data integrity solutions to help protect patient safety and ensure data is clean, and interoperable within an Enterprise Master Patient Index environment as well as information exchange within an Integrated Delivery Network (IDN) and Health Information Exchange (HIE). The first step in patient safety and data integrity is, and always will be – accurate patient identification.

There are a lot of reasons to visit us in Booth #307 at this year’s NAHAM Exhibit Hall, here are the top 5:

#1 We are presenting a learning lab on the benefits of using biometrics for patient ID!

On Thursday May 15th from 3:00 – 4:15 p.m. M2SYS Healthcare Solutions will co-present with Novant Health on the benefits of using biometrics for patient ID across the care continuum. We encourage you to attend the Learning Lab but if you aren’t able to make it please stop by our booth in the Exhibit Hall before the session to meet Melanie Wilson, VP of Revenue Cycle, from Novant Health and ask any questions that are on your mind!

#2 – You are serious about improving medical data integrity at your facility

The trustworthiness of health data has never been more significant than it is now in the wake of the industry’s shift towards digitized medicine and the widespread adoption of electronic health records. Many in the industry are aware that the first step in establishing quality medical data is accurate patient identification. Stop by Booth #307 in the Exhibit Hall to learn more about how our patient identity management platform helps strengthen medical data integrity and can be applied across the wide spectrum of patient touchpoints including mobile, patient portals, home health, registration kiosks, and more!

#3 – You have concerns about how to adopt strict patient authentication protocols at every point of patient interaction where access to their demographic, clinical or financial data is facilitated.

The increasing complexity of managing patient identities across the explosion of tools, devices and apps has prompted many healthcare facilities to implement a scalable, ubiquitous authentication platform like RightPatient™ that can be used to identify patients across any medium. Stop by our Booth to learn more about how to establish strong patient ID protocols at any touchpoint and deploy a limitless platform that meets the demands of the new healthcare model.

#4 – Curiosity on how to establish data accuracy across an Enterprise Master Patient Index (EMPI) is getting the best of you.  

One of the pressing problems for healthcare is finding a way to aggregate patient data into a single record to provide safer and more timely care. EMPI software solutions are great for back-end de-duplication, but alone do not address front-end patient authentication needs. RightPatient™  can seamlessly interface with EMPI software so  that patients can be identified in real-time from any location, ensuring accurate and prompt service delivery without missing any important medical history that could affect their care. Stop by Booth #307 to learn more!

#5 – You enjoy giveaways and a chance to win a $250 spa gift certificate 

Yes, we know. Part of the fun of attending the NAHAM conference is scouting the Exhibit Hall, visiting vendors, and picking up some goodies along the way. We won’t disappoint you at Booth #307 – we have some neat show giveaways and a chance for you to enter to win a $250 spa gift certificate! Now, how can you pass up that chance? Please stop and see us!

We hope that everyone has a safe journey to this year’s NAHAM conference and encourage you to stop by and see us, even if it’s just to say hello and pick up some giveaways. We enjoy seeing you and appreciate the opportunity to answer any questions you may have about patient identification and data integrity solutions for healthcare.

See you next week!

National Association of Healthcare Access Management Convention is this Week

NAHAM convention This week, National Association of Healthcare Access Management (NAHAM) professionals from around the country will gather together at the San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina for their 38th annual conference. The dates of the meeting are 05/08 through 05/12 and the conference agenda appears to be packed full of educational seminars and learning labs centered around curriculum regarding revenue cycle management, patient access, communication, patient flow, medicare/medicaid management, and many more topics. This year’s theme is “Patient Access: The Helm of the Revenue Cycle,” an appropriate testament to the critical role of patient access healthcare professionals to help keep costs down and revenues strong.

NAHAM is the leading resource for managing successful patient access services and describes itself as:

“We establish best practices and subject matter expertise; provide an array of networking, education, and certification opportunities; and enable our members to influence and promote high quality delivery of Patient Access Services.”

The recent changes in healthcare reform have shone a brighter spotlight on administrative operations so for the past couple of years, patient access has increasingly come into focus as a vital and integral part of a medical facility’s fabric and a key spoke in keeping healthcare costs down. The shift to EHR in healthcare has thrust the role of patient access managers and other healthcare personnel as stewards of the initiative, and these folks remain on the forefront of the changes.

It’s a safe bet that the Exhibit Hall will be packed with technology vendors showcasing their solutions and meeting with NAHAM members to understand more about their needs and market direction. M2SYS will be among those in attendance at Booth #808 where we will be showing a live demo of our RightPatient biometric patient identification system featuring iris recognition. If you are attending the show, please stop by to see us!

M2SYS CEO @themizan to Speak at 2012 Biometrics Summit in Miami

M2SYS CEO will be speaking about public safety and biometrics at the 2012 Biometrics Summit in Miami

M2SYS CEO to Speak at 2012 Biometrics Summit

Where: Miami Hilton Downtown, Miami, FL

When: February 27 – March 1, 2012

M2SYS Informational Session: Day two,  02/29/12, 3:25pm

M2SYS CEO Mizan Rahman will be speaking next week at the 2012 Biometrics Summit in Miami, FL. Mizan will be joined by James Rokosky from our partners at DSI-ITI, LLC. to dicsuss using multi-modal biometrics to enhance the public safety sector by securing the identification and tracking of inmates and visitors.

Due to increasing crime rates, correctional facilities are finding it difficult to securely manage the ever-growing number of identification records for prisoners and visitors. Proper identification of inmates prior to release is critical to public safety, and often times, over-populated and under-staffed jails may release unauthorized inmates due to human error or to inmates swapping ID bracelets with other inmates. Multi-modal biometric identification solutions provide a fail-safe way to properly manage correctional facilities. By using biometric identification at key areas throughout a detention center, the management system can track inmate and visitor movements throughout the day. Inmate and visitor whereabouts can be determined at any time, which increases accountability and in turn, increases overall jail security and safety.

Sharing experiences of how biometrics has evolved in the public safety sector, this session will focus on the functionality and advantages of using multi-modal biometric identification in detention centers for inmate and visitor management, including:

  • How to deploy biometric identification for prisoner and visitor identification within a facility
  • Why liabilities inherent with identity management in the public safety sector are virtually eliminated with biometric identification
  • Using accurate and efficient multi-modal biometric technology to track and control visitor registration and inmate intake, release, medicine dispersal and location

If you are in Miami for the conference, please drop in to hear Mizan speak. Hope to see you there!
