Technology has become instrumental in efficiently and effectively treating patients.

To ensure a quick and easy registration and safeguard against medical identity theft, Community Hospital Anderson began using PatientSecure in 2017. PatientSecure is a device that uses the latest biometric technology to provide accurate identification of patients. With a simple scan of a patient’s hand, their digital health record is accessed, streamlining the registration process and allowing patients to get necessary healthcare in a safe and efficient way.
