Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR BIOMETRIC ECG VERIFICATION OF PATIENT IDENTITY
Abstract:
A system (100) and method (200) for verifying patient identity including a heart monitor (101), a memory (102), and a processor (103). The heart monitor (101) may be adapted to collect a baseline ECG signal from a patient and a monitored ECG signal from the patient. The memory (102) may be in electrical communication with the heart monitor (101) and adapted to store a plurality of baseline statistical characteristics of the baseline ECG signal and a plurality of monitored statistical characteristics of the monitored ECG signal. The processor (103) may be in electrical communication with the memory (102) and adapted to compare the plurality of baseline statistical characteristics to the plurality of monitored statistical characteristics and determine a likelihood of patient match. The heart monitor (101) may be configured for further collection of the monitored ECG signal if the likelihood of patient match is greater than a threshold level.
