Patient Identification Using Fingerprint in Global Health

Authors(2) :-Gaurav Patni, Dr. Shilpa Sharma

Identifying the right patient with accuracy and matching the patient’s personal identify with the correct treatment required for him/her or service that is an important component of patient’s safety. The misidentification of in-patients and out-patients can happen all the medical staff members too easily given the fast-paced nature of medical care, and unfortunately, we have had and continue to have our share of these errors. This is why we have made patient identification the first of its Patient Safety Goals using proper Biometric Fingerprint Identification System. If we cannot identify patients properly, how can we expect them to trust us with their health care and treatment ? Therefore we are changing our expectations for how this process should be performed. We are working with the concept of Right Treatment to the Right Patient at the Right Time using the proper identification of the Right Patient using Biometric Fingerprint Identification System.
