DANSVILLE – Noyes Health is set to receive new technology that prevents medical identity theft by scanning and storing points on a patient’s finger.
According to a press release from Noyes Health, their new partnership with CrossChx, a leading company in medical ID theft prevention technology, will result the installation of ‘SafeChx’ devices at all hospital registration points.
“Noyes Health is pleased to be able to be the first in Western New York to offer this state-of-the-art medical system for our patients,” said Amy Pollard, Noyes Health President and CEO. “SafeChx makes the patient registration experience quicker and more accurate, when accessing patient records.”
Noyes says that the user-friendly technology offers patients medical identity theft protection and efficient patient registration while improving health outcomes and reducing the risk of medical errors.
By scanning a patient’s finger, CrossChx instantly links the patient to their medical benefits so no one else can use them.
“Neither CrossChx nor Noyes Health will ever view, store or scan your fingerprints,” says the press release from Noyes. “Rather, CrossChx creates a unique ID, through biometrics, based on points on your finger to offer you protection and privacy which encrypts a patient’s personal mathematical equation, which is protected by HIPPA Guidelines.”
Using the system is voluntary, but it is the policy of Noyes Health to protect medical identity and they encourage all patients age five and above enroll in the system.
