The security and privacy provisions of HIPAA have heightened awareness of the benefits of using highly secure, durable, and personalized ID cards for patients and healthcare employees. Healthcare cards can be an excellent patient loyalty platform, linking to a centralized data repository to speed up registration, to determine benefits eligibility, and to track and enhance patient activity. They also provide excellent identity badges for healthcare employees to control access to restricted areas, for time and attendance activities, and support facial recognition biometrics to verify identities when employees lose or forget their electronic employee credentials (IDs and passwords). As a loyalty vehicle, they can provide healthcare insurance data, can support discounts and specialty services like free valet parking, and can provide critical patient data at the point of care.
Healthcare providers receive a variety of benefits when they incorporate the use of plastic cards, including but not limited to: improved security, automated access controls, and support for the tracking of patient interactions. This leads to program cost reduction, improved patient services, and strengthened patient loyalty to the clinic, hospital, or pharmacy. These cards can support Medicare, Medicaid, WIC, or commercial healthcare programs.
