Collaboration part of Atlantic Health System’s Venture Studio
MORRISTOWN, NJ – JANUARY 18, 2021 – Increased access and cybersecurity have never been more important to the delivery of care than in today’s health care environment. To help improve the patient experience while offering enhanced online safety, Atlantic Health System, a nationally recognized leader in innovative and high-quality health care, has partnered with Vouched, a leading developer of artificial intelligence and computer vision for real-time identity verification. Traditionally, being a new patient to a physician’s office or health care system means completing an in-person registration process that is heavy on forms and requires a significant time investment of time. Patients often cannot self-register outside of a facility without going through a cumbersome and complicated identity screening process. Thanks to Vouched’s proprietary identity verification AI, Vouched.ID, Atlantic Health System patients can now safely and securely register digitally via their smartphone in seconds. “Atlantic Health seeks to transform health care, increase patient access, improve efficiency, and provide a better all-around patient experience.,” said Benjamin Maisano, Vice President, Chief Digital and Innovation Officer, Atlantic Health System. “Vouched.ID allows us to replicate in-person workflows online, such as examining a driver’s license or other government-issued photo identity documents, then using AI to compare with their live face scan, automating registration and getting patients access to their care team faster, easier and safer than ever before.” Atlantic Health System already uses Vouched.ID for digitally activating patients enabling improved virtual care, scheduling, and patient portal access to labs, medications, and other clinical information within MyChart. Vouched.ID improves Atlantic’s digital security posture and ease of access. ”Americans from all walks of life – those with autoimmune diseases, the elderly who have difficulty driving, busy moms — can benefit from the ease and speed telemedicine provides, and that’s especially true as the COVID pandemic enters its fourth wave,” said Vouched CEO and Co-founder, John Baird. “But millions struggle to be identified, effectively blocking health care access. Working with Atlantic Health, Vouched’s easy, remote identity verification, powers seamless access to health care.” Vouched is also part of the Atlantic Health System Venture Studio – the home for Atlantic Health System’s innovative and strategic partnerships.
