El Paso, TX (KTSM) — A local hospital is launching a new unique patient registration system.
Starting Tuesday, May 7, University Medical Center will use their new PatientSecure system.
Here's how it works.
Patients place their right hand on a small screening device that uses infrared light to capture the vein pattern of their palm.
This biometric information is used as each patient's unique identifier.
It ensures that each patient is identified accurately and their information is located faster.
