Have you developed an Identity Theft Prevention Program to detect, prevent, and minimize the damage that could result from identity theft?
PatientWorks can easily and efficiently bring you into compliance with minimal effort and cost.
Medical identity theft happens when a person seeks healthcare using someone else’s name or insurance information. A survey conducted by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) found that close to 5% of identity theft victims have experienced some form of medical identity theft. Victims may find their benefits exhausted or face potentially life-threatening consequences due to inaccuracies in their medical history. The cost to healthcare providers left with unpaid bills racked up by scam artists can be staggering.
The Red Flag rule requires certain businesses and organizations, including many doctors’ offices, hospitals and other healthcare providers, to develop a program to spot the warning signs, or “red flags”, of identity theft.
Is your organization prepared to comply with the new Red Flag rule?
PatientWorks’ photo capture, electronic signature capture and image capture solutions provide healthcare facilities with the tools to meet Red Flag rules and recommendations.
Let PatientWorks show you how we can automate the process of capturing the patient’s photo, signature, and any additional images such as driver licenses and insurance cards. These images are auto-associated to the patient’s electronic record, providing your facility with a process for detecting and mitigating identity theft and bringing you into compliance with Red Flag rules.
