Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) April 08, 2015
DirectTrust, a non-profit trade alliance that advances secure standards-based health information exchange (HIE) via the Direct Protocol, is proud to announce TASCET, Inc. as a Platinum Sponsor for the 2nd Annual DirectTrust HIMSS15 Reception.
TASCET is a digital enterprise risk management company, providing software that enables enterprises to proactively manage risk, prevent fraud and protect consumers. In healthcare, TASCET issues a Standard Patient Number™ (SPN), which overcomes the flaws in existing methods of matching patients to medical records and solves the need to identify patients across disparate medical systems during electronic exchange. SPNs solve enterprise risks ranging from medical identity fraud, out of network providers and internal and external patient record sharing while protecting patients in the event of a data breach.
Larry Aubol, CEO TASCET stated, “Everything is digitized, except the most important thing; the customer, the patient, the employee. They remain stuck in the sixteenth century of paper and ink. When we rely on documents and information to identify the people we do business with, we inadvertently promote fraud and threaten the enterprise."
“We are pleased to have TASCET as a valued member of DirectTrust and a Platinum Sponsor for our upcoming event. TASCET and its collaborating peer organizations in the DirectTrust network will continue to have a tremendous impact on patient identity and matching," said Dr. David C. Kibbe, President and CEO of DirectTrust.
