Understanding the Differences Between 1:1 Verification, 1:Few Segmentation and 1:N Identification for Biometric Patient Identification Systems

1,140 views

Published on

Healthcare biometrics applications are increasingly becoming a part of the industry's architecture. As more and more facilities evaluate the benefits of using a biometric patient identification system to eliminate duplicate records, increase patient safety, lower hospital liability and stop medical identity fraud, it's important to understand the difference between 1:1 verification, 1:Few segmentation and 1:N identification searches. This presentation explains the differences between these search types in a biometric patient identification system, why 1:1 and 1:Few searches can't prevent duplicate medical records or medical identity fraud and why 1:N searches are the optimal searches for healthcare biometrics.
