Positive Patient Identification (PPID) Market By Component (Scanning Devices, Software And Services), By Deployment Model (Web/Client Based, Cloud Based) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2016 - 2023

Patient misidentification is one of the most serious issues faced by the healthcare organizations worldwide. It occurs in several ways with the root cause being manual handling of identification process. Some of the major instances of patient misidentification include providing false information intentionally, change in name of the patient, improper oral registration process and others. According to the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA), over 40% of duplicate medical records are due to inconsistent records of the patients’ first and last names. In the U.S., preventable medical errors cause more than 400,000 patient deaths every year. Typically, average cost per misidentified record accounts for more than US$ 1,000, leading to high financial loss throughout the year. This makes effective and reliable patient identification highly essential in healthcare organizations.

Positive patient identification refers to a system of hardware and software components used for identifying a patient’s identity. The hardware comprises scanning devices used for reading barcodes, RFID tags and also biometrics. The scanned information is processed using an integrated software and checked with the central information system of the organization. With the rise in trend of reducing the working hours of healthcare team members, the number of personnel caring for each patient increases. This further becomes more susceptible miscommunication ultimately leading to patient misidentification. Subsequently, there can be sensed a strong need for automated patient identification solution that can reduced the number of identity thefts and misidentification effectively.
