BioClaim is a patented software product that uses biometrics to authenticate a patient at the point of service. We place a biometric device (typically a fingerprint scanner) in a physician’s office to replace a conventional sign in sheet. BioClaim can also be used in conjunction with a smart card.
When a patient enters the office, they will sign in using the biometric device by simply placing their finger on the scanner. We convert the biometric to a computer template. We never store the print so we are compliant with patient privacy. Also acquired during the visit is a patient identifier which is stored with the biometric id in our database.
A registration code in the biometric device tells us which provider has which scanner. In every transaction we collect a patient identifier, a biometric print as well as a provider identifier (NPI or taxpayer ID), the date, time and location of the service.
BioClaim has been under development since 2003. Development of BioClaim has always followed industry standards, giving users a choice of operating systems and hardware platforms. The market has since validated that foresight. Today, we still maintain hardware independence allowing our clients a wider choice of computer and operating system options including: all versions of Windows 32 bit operating systems and web browsers. We also allow a choice of networks that best meets your needs. BioClaim can be installed in a client-server network, a thin-client environment or be accessed via a web browser.
