Saint Peter’s Healthcare System offers patients a unique and secure healthcare identity that allows you to quickly register anywhere you go within Saint Peter’s University Hospital. This technology is known as PrivasentTM. Privasent helps Saint Peter’s Healthcare System to:
• Verify your patient identity is 100% accurate when visiting Saint Peter’s
• Allow members of the healthcare team securely look up your patient history based on your identity
• Keep you and your identity safe.
Privasent uses a small, desktop device that takes images of your palm-vein patterns. This is done at the time of registration or check-in. Palm-vein patterns are unique to each individual. Privasent’s smart cards will also be issued to each patient at the time of enrollment. The card looks like a credit card. It is clearly labeled with the Saint Peter’s Healthcare System logo. Each time you arrive for care, you will be asked to present your Privasent card and have your palm scanned. This process validates a person’s identity.
After your enrollment and once you have the Privasent card, you will be able to quickly register anywhere you go within the hospital. You will be able to register with your Privasent cards anywhere within the Saint Peter’s Healthcare System.
