During the course of the pandemic, a number of frauds were recorded regarding the identification of the patient, health records of the patient, insurance claims and identification of deceased individuals. this condition which was created as a result of the huge number of patients that were flowing into the hospitals increased the need to have better facilities and technologies in order to identify a particular patient or relative to support the medical system and avoid the occurrence of such fraud cases. With the increase in the number of healthcare facilities during the coming years the adoption of healthcare biometrics is expected to increase rapidly. Various market players are competing with each other in order to create better security scanners which provide authentic details and reduce the number of systemic errors while scanning the details of a particular individual. A drawback of the healthcare biometrics is its failure in the situations where the details of an individual get lost or altered as a result of a disease condition. Under such circumstances it is practically impossible for the system to cross verify or obtain legitimate data all the information from the individual and conduct a scan.
Every individual possesses a unique behavioral pattern and a particular type of physical features. The healthcare biometric system is mainly concerned with this data or information which gets recorded in the system in its memory and is recalled when the same person appears in front of the scanner. The scanner mainly conducts a scan of the face or the hand and collects details regarding those particular parts and cross matches with the previously obtained information which is stored in its memory. It is also used in order to identify the individuals who are kept under a close watch by those systems. It authenticates the presence or absence of that particular individual based on the data or information fed into the system by the security departments. This system comes in handy when the personal records of a particular individual are to be kept secured.
The medical data of the hospitals and the clinics are extremely confidential and cannot be revealed to anyone without the consent of the doctor or the individual itself. Patient's privacy is considered to be the primary factor when these confidential data are being recorded by the medical personnel in our health care system. Patient security has always obtained the topmost priority in any healthcare industry. A biometric scanner examines the biological data of the user by recording and storing unique physical information which attributes the presence of a particular individual in order to use them in the future for further reference of identification. The scanned data is converted into digital format with the help of software which is collected by a scanning device understood into a database in the form of biometrics to form a comparison with the already present biometric data when required. This system forms the core of the healthcare biometrics market.
Biometric scanning which includes voice or facial recognition help to provide a contactless identification process for the individual. These techniques are mainly used where or restricted area is present and needs to be protected on high priority. The benefit of the biometric system is that it avoids a huge crowd to enter into the premises of the health care system which tends to create confusion and havoc for the medical staff.
