 In News

RESTON, VA & TAMPA, FL — February 24, 2014 — QuadraMed Corporation today announced that it has signed an agreement with HT Systems, a provider of leading patient identification management solutions, including PatientSecure, the nation’s most adopted Biometric Patient Identification Management System. As part of the agreement, QuadraMed and HT Systems will offer a comprehensive patient registration solution that combines QuadraMed’s EMPI and HT Systems’ PatientSecure technologies. The combined QuadraMed-HT Systems solution will help healthcare organizations ensure enterprise-wise patient data integrity and accurate identification of patients at all registration points.

PatientSecure utilizes palm vein recognition biometrics to accurately identify patients at registration and retrieve their correct medical record from organizations’ HIS, EHR, or EMPI systems such as QuadraMed’s EMPI solution. Ranked #1 by KLAS in the enterprise master person index segment for five consecutive years, QuadraMed’s EMPI solution provides the accurate, reliable foundation organizations need to link and manage patient records across disparate IT systems. By leveraging the powerful capabilities of QuadraMed’s EMPI technology and PatientSecure, organizations can improve patient safety and satisfaction, protect patients from medical identity theft, and minimize the risk of insurance card fraud. Organizations can also reduce duplicate healthcare records and overlays in the EMPI, leading to immediate cost and time savings.

“HT Systems has focused on positive patient identification and medical record integrity for the safety of patients”, said Carl Bertrams, SVP, Sales and Marketing, HT Systems. “QuadraMed’s EMPI solution shares the same goal of providing enterprise-wide data integrity and ensuring the patients are accurately linked to their medical record. By combining our solutions, we are able to provide a truly robust patient identification system spanning the entire spectrum of the patient’s healthcare experience.”

“Our partnership with HT Systems brings together two recognized industry-leaders in EMPI and patient identification management,” said Vicki Wheatley, Executive Vice President, EMPI Solutions, QuadraMed. “The integration between QuadraMed’s leading EMPI technology and HT Systems’ innovative biometrics solution will help organizations ensure accurate patient identification—and ultimately—patient safety.”
