VeriPAT is a biometric server based secure patient identification system which utilizes a combination of a finger print scan and unique patient identifier. Registration involves entering patient information, answering security questions, scanning a patient’s finger and generating a unique identifier. Positive patient identification is achieved by scanning the patient’s fingerprint or by scanning the patient identification card along with confirming key security questions by the patient.
