Healthcare facilities constantly struggle with patient registration and are always looking for ways to improve processes, save time and money, and reduce liability risks. The challenge lies in accurately identifying patients during registration and eliminating duplicate medical records. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was an easy way to increase speed of registration, minimize data entry errors and protect sensitive patient data at the same time?
There is! SmartReg driver’s license scanning software was designed specifically for automated enrollment and allows facilities to quickly and accurately read the data stored in the barcode or magnetic stripe on a government ID, like a Driver’s License. This data is automatically entered into the appropriate fields in any third-party system or screen, eliminating the need to manually type that information in and reducing errors in the process.
There is no integration required with your EHR system! SmartReg is completely application independent and can be configured to work with any system.
For returning patients, the driver’s license scanning software can also be used to recall or pull up existing patient records. You may choose to search by first name, last name and date of birth. By scanning the license at each visit, you can validate patient identity and ensure the appropriate record is pulled up. You also greatly reduce the risk of creating duplicate medical records by using this system!
Driver’s license scanning with SmartReg is a cost-effective solution that can greatly assist with your struggles in patient registration and identification! Contact us to schedule a quick 5-minute product demonstration today!
