The WHO has recognised patient safety as one of the main challenges of today’s society. In Europe 145,000 patients die every year due to identification errors which represents a market cost of €64B. In the US, identification errors are the third cause of death, just behind strokes and diabetes, killing 250,000 patients per year and with a market cost of $400B. These statistics show that the current patient identification methods—bracelets and health cards—are not efficient enough. A new way to identify and manage patients is required.
Heuristik Health is a 360º solution to help health staff identify & manage their patient portfolio combining fingerprint identification and artificial intelligence. Fingerprints are individual, non-transferable and inherent to each person so that they are the gold standard tool for the patient identification.
