Texas Health Resources in The Dallas Morning News

A Jan. 27 story in the business section of The Dallas Morning News highlighted a new technology being used at Texas Health Resources’ hospitals to improve quality and safety. With a quick two-second scan of the palm, the high-tech system maps the vein pattern of a patient’s hand, which is considered more accurate than a fingerprint. The scanner uses a near-infrared light similar to the signal emitted by a TV remote control. That image is then tied to the patient’s electronic medical record, reducing the risk that two people with the same name and birth date are ever confused. Scott Phillips, director of patient access services for Texas Health, was quoted.
