Citrus Heights, Calif. – LifeMed ID, the nation’s leader in providing healthcare solutions to ensure patient safety by validating patient identity and record matching, will showcase its suite of solutions during the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Annual Conference and Exhibition in Orlando, Florida on February 23-27 at Booth #6245.

“We help our customers improve patient safety, reduce fraud and eliminate duplicate records,” said David Batchelor, CEO of LifeMed ID. “Our solutions identify and validate the right patient to the right record – anytime, anywhere providing interoperability across disparate health IT systems.”

Visitors to LifeMed ID’s booth will witness cutting-edge demonstrations, showing how the use of multiple interoperable patient identity solutions, including Smart cards and state of the art biometrics, eliminate duplicate records and match identity, insurance and records across disparate Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems.
