Establishing a source of truth for health systems globally starts by establishing multi-factor authentication for patients – a design that confirms identity by utilizing a combination of least two different factors: something you have, something you know, something you are. We call this a secure patient token, and it establishes the “1 patient, 1 record” or “1 patient, all correct records” concept. This platform can be applied across public and private healthcare environments and initiatives, including Health Systems, Accountable Care Organizations (ACO), Population Health, Integrated Care, private insurers, Medicare and Medicaid, and others.
LifeMed ID, Inc. enables healthcare to develop a robust patient identity infrastructure for better care delivery.
“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
The LifeMed ID team ensures our solution addresses industry needs and we are committed to empowering individuals to surpass obstacles, maintain accountability, and sustain a positive work environment. It is our imperative to provide users with the most innovative and reliable solutions in the market with unsurpassed, rapid support. Solving identity is a challenge, and every team member holds themselves to the highest standards of ethics and business acumen to make a lifelong and significant difference in the industry. We thrive as a company by setting high expectations of ourselves and meeting those standards through continuous discovery and improvement though:
A complete and trusted patient identity is the basis for healthcare. Without it, the industry struggles to ensure that each party is sharing correct information about the correct patient. Current registration is set up to capture patient demographics and generate a record for that patient. However, this process stops short of establishing a highly reliable identity, making it difficult for a patient’s record to be confidently known and shared across the care continuum. This puts the patient and organization at risk. Common elements that contribute to this obstacle are human error and fraud (name spelling, name change from marriage, nick names, outdated vs. current addresses, insurance status and others).
