Maria Gracia has just scheduled her time for an endoscopy with her gastroenterologist. From the Patient Portal she has received an e-mail on her cell phone, where she can review the detailed preparation for her exam. Through a biometric facial verification, you will sign all the necessary documents for your admission process, all from the comfort of your home, avoiding paperwork and long waits at the medical center on the day of your procedure. In addition, the medical center will have all of María Gracia’s documentation securely stored in advance, remotely verifying her identity and safeguarding her sensitive information, such as her medical records and personal data. All this is possible thanks to the development of biometric technology, which reduces time and shortens distances to a click, while providing better levels of security and certainty, avoiding slow and cumbersome procedures. Something that a person undergoing a healthcare procedure is likely to value. Improving the patient experience, protecting sensitive information and making more efficient the processes that today, through technology, can be carried out anytime and anywhere, is precisely one of the objectives of TOC Biometrics, a leading company in the region in biometric identity verification, which has developed a complete suite of biometric solutions with applications for the healthcare sector.
