On June 2nd, digital intake solutions provider CERTIFY Health announced that community-based health provider, VHC Health is slated to implement CERTIFY’s positive patient identification (PPID) that uses facial biometrics, across all locations. This will make VHC, the first ever healthcare provider to use this cutting-edge patient experience technology. CERTIFY’s PPID features will be embedded into VHC Health’s existing electronic record systems to deliver a consumer-friendly experience to patients and staff.
“VHC is proud to be the first health care system in the DMV area to partner with CERTIFY Health to enhance the patient experience. This is one of several recent investments that VHC has made in innovative technologies as we strive to provide the safest, most secure options for our patients and community.”

Patient fraud rates have soared in the past few years. PPID’s purpose is to make identity verification for the patient throughout their care journey. This will deliver healthcare providers a secure system to authenticate all procedures.
“It’s an amazing opportunity for us to have a strategic partner who is committed to innovation around the patient experience the way VHC is and so willing to adopt some of the most cutting-edge technology in healthcare right now. Our innovative PPID technology will safeguard VHC patient information and increase speed and efficiency during the check-in process.”
