digital registration

As I am sure everyone deals with duplicate medical record numbers, I was wounding if anyone is using any type of digital hardware/software to register your patients. I know there are systems where patients can have their finger, palm of hand and even optical scan done to help prevent errors in registration. I would like to hear from someone who is doing this.

  • We merge duplicates after the fact. I would also be interested in what software you are using for patient identification.
