PostSubject: fingerprint ID will be mandatory for all hospitals   Wed Jul 20, 2016 2:38 pm

From October fingerprint ID will be mandatory for all hospitals
Specially developed mobile application will help to detect abuses in the payment of treatment


Not sure about this?

At the latest by early October fingerprint identifier will be implemented and mandatory for all hospitals in the country. It announced by the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) at a press conference, where representatives of the contractor "Consortium stem Gamma Consult" presented how the new system.

Since yesterday fingerprint ID system started a pilot project in five hospitals - University Hospital "St. Anna" AD; First Hospital EAD, Sofia; First SAGBAL "St. Sofia" EAD, Sofia; SHATO EAD, Sofia and Rousse Hospital Plc. Within days the system will be tested in a total of 20 pilot hospitals, and by early October should work everywhere in medical institutions in the country.

The devices generate a Unique Identification Number (UIN), which is a digital code without carrying any information and is used to identify the insured. UIN will be required upon admission and discharge from the hospital. For outpatient procedures that do not require hospitalization, will also apply fingerprint identifier. Emergencies will first be treated, then you will be doing the patient registration via the identification number.

The Health Insurance Fund stressed that the new mechanism is a tool to control the spending of public money on health and said they rely heavily and patients to report to the treasury in cases of irregularities. The identifier will be a disincentive nor will somehow reveal the identity of the patient. Data can not be stored, removed and stolen. This is a way to connect identity with ID-patient commented the NHIF.

The device is designed so that it can eventually be applied to other contract partners of the frame. According to the plan of the Ministry of Health with Unique Identification Number will buy medicines in pharmacies.

Unique identification number will be generated for any insured person when using the health service which is paid by the National Health Insurance Fund. The procedure takes about 25 seconds proved contractors at a demonstration for journalists. Generated digits of the code will be transmitted to the headquarters of the Health Insurance Fund. The health fund will be able to compare whether the person at the same time was in the hospital and what service is carried out and whether it meets paid by the Fund.

UIN itself can be generated by the device to each finger. Upon registration in the hospital is required ID number of the person ID card number and mobile phone. Every registered in the system mobile phone will be entitled to a specially designed mobile application through which you can communicate information about specific medical service performed and the amount that was paid by cashier for her. In discrepancy NHIF will immediately make checks. Quiescent unique identification number triggered inspection by the health fund, that fund would consider that there is a problem that will be tracked.

It became clear that a patient may refuse to give Wynn, but this automatically means that the Fund will not pay the hospital underlying medical services. He remained unanswered whether the hospital will refuse to treat a patient refused to generate IDUs.

Through the mobile application patient will be able to send a signal to the frame and thus prove mismatch incurred and paid procedures - for example, if the person was not hospitalized, but has received information about the procedure safe, or if made a manipulation but paid another.

Contractors ensure reliable protection of the data stream. There will be no possibility to be used other than the fingers of the hand to generate code. The traffic between servers also can not be overheard guaranteed by the contractor. There is an option for this to make sure that does not submit false data to the frame.

It was explained that in exceptional cases due to technical or physiological reasons, can not generate digital code will be used data from the identity card of the person. Children under 14 will be entered only with PIN, as an attendant will have to generate the code.

With the unique code verifier of the entrance and exit of the hospital. If this is not done, the hospital will not receive money from NHIF for procedures performed.

The system costs 476 thousand. Lev, and each device is priced at 239 lev, VAT excluded and should be bought by the hospital itself. The devices are three-year warranty.

Fingerprint ID has been proposed as a mechanism to control the costs of health minister Petar Moskov and was conceived as an opportunity patient authorize the Health Insurance Fund to pay for treatment or medication.

Today remained unanswered, however, the most important question - whether the system with UIN will reduce the drain frame and how much money will be saved. The Ministry of Health expects 10% savings from the introduction of the system of fingerprint ID advance information.

Its worth noting these 2 paragraphs

Fingerprints - mandatory in hospitals today
Today, November 1, 2016 09:23
Source: Nova the TV

From today fingerprints are required in hospitals. Patients who enter the medical institutions must be registered with the so-called fingerprint identifier.

This will register the medical care we receive. The system was introduced in the summer trial in several hospitals.

Some doctors feared that in the beginning the system will lead to serious tails.

Others feared that by taking fingerprint will be misused personal data. By the Health Ministry, however, ensure that no such danger.

To be quite honest, I can't see why they can't just record the ID card at the point of service.
