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!

Top 5 Reasons to Visit us in Booth #219 at this Week’s NAHAM Patient Access Trade Show & Conference

come see M2SYS at the 39th annual NAHAM show in Atlanta and get a free demo of their RightPatient iris biometrics patient identification solution

The 39th annual NAHAM trade show and conference is May 16 – 18 at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta.

May is always an exciting time of the year for us here at M2SYS because the National Association of Healthcare Access Management’s (NAHAM) annual symposium and trade show falls during the month. And to top it off, this year’s conference is in our hometown of Atlanta!

If you aren’t familiar with NAHAM, here is a brief synopsis of who they are from their Web site:

“The National Association of Healthcare Access Management is the leading resource in Patient Access Services.

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.

Patient access services professionals provide quality services in registration and all of its support processes to patients, providers and payors into, through and out of their health care experience.”

The annual conference theme this year is: “Leading the Way: A Brave New World of Patient Access” and promises to be one of the best shows yet as the NAHAM staff has assembled an impressive agenda and speakers to talk about current topics in patient access management.

So, why should you stop and see us this year at the show? Here are the top 5 reasons:

1. Solution demos – Here at M2SYS , we are excited to be a vendor in this year’s NAHAM Exhibit Hall (stop and see us in Booth #219) to meet some of the attendees and demonstrate our RightPatient™ hybrid biometric patient identification solution with iris recognition, a technology that has caught on with many hospitals and is spreading rapidly.

2. Entertainment and giveaways – We have some special surprises in our booth this year too. Stop by to meet and take a photo with Jessica Black, Miss United States 2010 and enter your name to win a prize so secretive we can’t tell you what it is…you will have to stop by our booth and see for yourself! (Hint – it has wheels)

3. Education – Accurate patient identification has become a hot topic in healthcare since accurate and effective treatment along the care continuum hinges on the ability to identity a patient correctly. Now, more than ever, it’s important to educate on what healthcare biometrics technology options are available to help ensure patient identification accuracy.

4. Mobile patient identification – We will be demonstrating a mobile iris patient identification solution in our booth that medical practitioners can use with a smart device like an Android smart phone and identify patients anywhere in a hospital setting including the ability to identify unconscious patients and patients en route to the hospital for more coordinated and effective treatment.

5. Due diligence – This is the time to ask all of the questions on your mind about the benefits of using biometrics for patient identification in a patient access setting. It is critical that you perform the necessary due diligence before investing in any type of patient identification solution. Our staff will be available to demonstrate the technology and answer any questions you may have.

Hoping to see you at the 39th annual NAHAM conference this year in Atlanta!

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!
