Malta Systems Receives Patent for Key Privasent Healthcare Technology

Malta Systems, a healthcare technology company focused on unique, absolute, and interoperable healthcare identity, announced the approval of their patent titled, "Anonymous authentication using backup biometric information," US patent number 9,213,818. Malta Systems’ CEO, Don Brown is pleased with the approval of the patent. “By implementing Privasent’s patented technology, providers have an identity foundation necessary to link patient EHRs precisely throughout the continuum of care — regardless of where that care is provided — and improve both patient satisfaction and care. With the patient as the focal point, hospital clinical, financial, medical records and technology teams can work with the Malta team to demonstrate the clinical and financial benefits of absolute healthcare identity,” Brown said. Privasent’s patented solution combines smart card, biometric and security technologies to produce a unique, absolute and interoperable identity that can scale to a national patient identifier. This unique identity can only be used to access healthcare services thus protecting the patient’s privacy and identity integrity. Patients are registered in the Privasent network with the issuance of a Privasent card and the capture of a palm-vein pattern. Each time a patient checks-in for care, Privasent validates their identity and the electronic health record (EHR) associated with the identity. Healthcare providers can search Privasent to identify other EHRs associated with this identity throughout Privasent’s network of providers and determine which must be accessed to provide relevant medical history for the patient’s care. The awarded patent covers managing the use of such a physical token — in this case a smartcard — together with a biometric identifier — here, a simple palm-vein scan — to uniquely and quickly identify every patient. The newly awarded patent is essential to helping Malta Systems provide absolute [...]

These first locations — with plans to expand to the entire healthcare system — average 50 patient enrollments per day as Saint Peter’s begins its use of Privasent and its patient health identity solution. Saint Peter’s piloted the technology in 2013 and demonstrated that Privasent’s unique and absolute identity eliminated identity errors, ensured accurate matching of EHRs and was embraced by its patients as a means to protect their privacy and health identity.

This unique identity can only be used to access healthcare services thus protecting the patient’s privacy and identity integrity. Patients are registered in the Privasent network with the issuance of a Privasent card and the capture of a palm-vein pattern.
