Identity (n) [ī den′tə tē]: Who you are, the way you think about yourself, the way you are viewed by the world and the characteristics that define you.
The U.S. is highly fragmented with thousands of incompatible databases and other systems, making it difficult or impossible to share patient’s information across healthcare organizations. LifeMed ID is accepted nationwide as the standard for authoritative digital identity and supports a variety of ID tokens and health IT systems to ensure the accuracy of patient information and provide operational efficiencies.
LifeMed ID's solution serves as an enrichment to current registration software, standardizing patient authentication and providing deterministic matching of a patient's single record (MRN) at all facilities. LifeMed ID uses precise patient ID matching technology and enhances workflow logic to create a consistent, up-to-date, and centralized index of each patient's identity linked to their one medical record at each facility. LifeMed ID provides a fast, automated and accurate registration access to a patient's medical record without interrupting current workflow. LifeMed ID maximizes the efficiency of healthcare delivery, minimizes administrative time, decreases financial risks and eliminates misidentification. Most importantly, LifeMed ID increases patient safety.
“I’ve participated in industry standard development in the past, however, no one was pushing for them to be implemented. When in the absence of the federal government creating such standards, the industry has to lead these changes. LifeMed ID can help tremendously with these proliferations” - Nancy Farrington | CHAM, FHAM, EMPI Administrator, Health Information Management
“The economic value is very positive; registration time was cut from four minutes to one minute. We are issuing an average of 500 smart cards daily, significantly diminishing the amount of time needed by our people to enter, update, and cleanse patient information. We also know the last time the patient information was updated, when they were seen, and the last time their insurance was checked.” - Gale Stoy, IT Director | Mid Coast Health Services
