Wednesday, June 04, 2014 - Martin Health Demonstrates New Patient Identification System


 
 Jessyka Williams, a Martin Health patient registration supervisor, demonstrates the Right
Patient identification system to visiting representatives from Adventist Health System. 


Stuart, FL – Representatives from Adventist Health System recently visited the emergency department at Martin Medical Center in Stuart to see a new patient identification and safety tool in action.  The RightPatient
Biometric Patient Identification system from M2SYS (www.m2sys.com) was launched at Martin Health in October 2013 in the health care system’s four emergency departments. The system uses a special camera to take a photo of a patient’s iris which is a unique identifier for every individual. RightPatient then links the photo to the patient's medical record to prevent the creation of a duplicate medical record or medical identity theft. Martin Health patients have warmly embraced the new technology.
