Positive Patient Identity Course 

Validating patient identity is crucial to the continuity of patient care, the reduction of patient record errors, and fraud to a hospital or care facility. Accurately identifying patients and linking them to the correct medical record is paramount to proper patient treatment. Errors due to inaccurate patient identification can lead to improper healthcare and high organizational costs. 

 This course will explore:

  • The importance of patient information and identity validation
  • Benefits of proper patient authentication
  • Fraud and abuse that can occur

This course was created by LifeMed ID in collaboration with NAHAM.  The course is worth 1 NAHAM Contact Hour.
