The Ease of Touch Screen Technology

By host on 4/7/2013 1:43 PM

Patients have a social security number, they will have a patient number, file number and any associated insurance will then know them by a different numerical system. This is why there has been such a need for mountains and mountains of paperwork. Many times, it’s simply to verify who the patient really is. Touch screen patient sign-in and registration does away with all of the needless repetitive paperwork and can significantly cut down on wait times.

Changes in RFID and Patient Information Security that Affect Your Health Care Business

By host on 3/31/2013 10:12 PM
The Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was enacted to keep patients’ private information safe and most facilities are concerned with providing the privacy of their patients according to the requirements within the act. A Radio-frequency identification (RFID) tag has become the simplest solution for protecting large volumes of information received through patient registration. Many facilities and health care providers have learned that human error makes it nearly impossible to protect the information completely and that any mistakes that are made are likely to be expensive ones.

The first HIPAA breach settlement occurred on January 3, 2013 when a small healthcare facility was fined $50,000 for a breach of security. While these guidelines are strict, they are also important for protecting the patient as well as your health care facility. As technology continues to grow, the regulations for keeping patient information safe are expected to become even stricter with stiffer penalties for violations. It is important for healthcare facilities to take advantage of technology to provide the utmost security for their patients’ information starting with a registration management system that prevents the breach of information that can occur when paper files or computers are left unattended.
