Newswise – MORRISTOWN, NJ – JANUARY 18, 2021 – Increased access and cybersecurity have never been more important to the delivery of care than in today’s healthcare environment. To help improve the patient experience while providing enhanced online security, Atlantic Health System, a nationally recognized leader in high-quality, innovative healthcare, has partnered with Vouched, a leading developer of artificial intelligence and computer vision for real-time identity verification.
Traditionally, being a new patient in a doctor’s office or healthcare system has meant completing an in-person registration process that is heavy on forms and requires a significant time investment. Patients often cannot self-register outside of a facility without going through a cumbersome and complicated identity verification process. Using Vouched’s proprietary identity verification AI, Vouched.ID, Atlantic Health System patients can now securely check in digitally via their smartphone in seconds.
“Atlantic Health seeks to transform healthcare, increase patient access, improve efficiency and deliver a better overall patient experience,” said Benjamin Maisano, vice president, chief digital and innovation, Atlantic Health System. “Vouched.ID allows us to replicate in-person workflows online, such as reviewing a driver’s license or other government-issued photo ID, and then using AI to compare with their live facial scan, automate check-in, and connect patients to their care team faster, easier, and safer than ever.
Atlantic Health System already uses Vouched.ID for virtual emergency care and continues to innovate with Vouched to expand applications to schedule any type of appointment and bring contactless facial scanning to in-person systems, replacing palm scanners for a safer and more hygienic experience.
“Americans of all walks of life – those with autoimmune diseases, seniors who have difficulty driving, busy mothers – can benefit from the ease and speed of telemedicine, and this is especially true then as the COVID pandemic enters its fourth wave,” said Vouched CEO and Co-Founder, John Baird. “But millions of people are struggling to be identified, blocking access to healthcare. In collaboration with Atlantic Health, Vouched provides easy remote identity verification, enabling seamless access to healthcare.
Vouched is also part of the Atlantic Health System Venture Studio, the Atlantic Health System’s home for innovative and strategic partnerships. Designed to foster breakthrough innovations that solve tomorrow’s challenges in healthcare, the Atlantic Health System Venture Studio gives startups, vendors and technology leaders access to mentorship from world-renowned clinical and business leaders from around the world. ‘Atlantic Heath System.
