Xecan Palm ID

Palm Vein Scan Verification

Palm vein recognition technology is one of the bio-metric technologies most widely accepted by patients and healthcare providers because it identifies patients with a high level of accuracy, and is easy for patients to use and accept. It takes about ten seconds to enroll a patient's palm. Each patient’s palm vein pattern is unique and stable over his/her lifetime. Therefore the enrollment data can be used for verification purposes over the lifetime of a patient.  


Xecan integrates the palm vein pattern of the patient into its Smart Oncology Solution. Patient queuing and treatment chart opening can be initialted by both RFID and biometric patient identification. During the patient sign-up session, a patient’s unique palm vein pattern is recorded. The process takes less than one minute. The vein pattern beneath the skin in the palm is unique to each person, and does not change over the course of one’s lifetime, which makes it ideal for identifying a person.

The advanced software algorithm processes the patient’s vein pattern to create an encrypted and protected digital file which is linked to the EMR System (either ARIA or MOSAIQ). Unlike other forms of biometric technology, the palm vein reader is a robust system that scans beneath the surface of the skin, demonstrating a high tolerance with respect to skin surface problems such as dryness, roughness, moisture, or scarring.

The Xecan PalmScan app can be deployed alone or in conjunction with the smart RFID technology. When deployed alone, it provides the benefit of lanyard/card free operation. On the other hand, the RFID system provides benefits of automation, patient tracking and accessory verification. The combined system delivers the maximum patient safety, efficiency, and clinical automation with full coverage of regular, irregular or follow-up patient visits.
