ATLANTA, July 8, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IDology, Inc., a leading provider of identity verification and anti-fraud tools, has been selected by XIFIN, Inc., a leading provider of financial and health economic optimization solutions for diagnostic service providers, to offer IDology's ExpectID® identity verification solution as an app on the XIFIN iNetTM patient portal platform.
XIFIN, processing more than 200 million claims per year through its flagship revenue performance management solution, uses the IDology app to allow patient identity to be authenticated in real-time, facilitating patient access to their medical and billing data while protecting patient privacy and guarding against fraud.
With new clinical laboratory improvement amendments going into effect in October, patients will now have direct access to their test results from laboratories upon request. Providing a secure environment for patients to access their electronic health records will be critical for both patients and healthcare providers alike.
Bill Taylor, chief marketing officer at XIFIN stated, "Ensuring interoperability for customers using our health economics optimization platform and portals requires best-in-breed identity verification, privacy and security. We are excited to add IDology's knowledge-based authentication technology to our growing list of partner apps to further protect information access and deter fraud."
ExpectID uses a patent-pending process to access thousands of data sources containing billions of public records to validate an identity and deter fraudulent activities, providing predictive, intelligent information and analytics around the identity verification process. IDology's automated identity verification solutions have been helping healthcare companies verify identities online and in call centers for years to facilitate online patient registration, prescription filling and the sharing of medical advice and sensitive information.
"This is a win for both patients and labs; the combination of XIFIN's reach and expertise within healthcare and the identity verification expertise of IDology's ExpectID solutions enables the efficient and secure dissemination of lab results directly to patients," said John Dancu, CEO and president of IDology.
The XIFIN health economics optimization platform enables end-to-end connectivity, collaboration, and continuity of care across the entire diagnostic lifecycle from patient to payment. The cloud-based technology and business intelligence platform links healthcare stakeholders in the delivery and reimbursement of care, optimizing both business and patient outcomes and providing informed, streamlined diagnostic and business decision-making.
