Automated Biometric Patient Identification

Eliminating Wrong Patient Errors
The AlignRT Patient ID Module uses facial recognition to ensure the right patient gets the right treatment, every time.  Installed in the treatment room, the module provides automated, non-contact patient ID in a discreet, easy-to-use system and includes hand-held functionality for non-ambulatory patients.

Improving patient identification accuracy is a top priority for healthcare systems worldwide. Studies have shown that wrong-patient errors can occur in approximately 1 in 25,000 to 1 in 250,000 patient encounters.1,2

In the complex field of radiation oncology, such errors can have devastating consequences, shattering trust and even endangering lives. Traditional methods, such as manual checks and ID cards, leave room for human error, which can be amplified during busy periods or when staff are under pressure.

This cutting-edge solution is integrated directly into AlignRT, providing an additional layer of safety and enabling you to focus on what matters most – building trust and delivering exceptional patient care.
