The doctor can see you now

The doctor can see you now: "As physician practices convert their paper charts and files to electronic formats, checks are being put in place to prevent fraud and identity theft. Photographing patients is not a new idea, but is gaining popularity.

'If somebody wants to pick something up, it's another way to see that it is them,' said Cyndi McNutt, Orthopaedics Northeast front-office supervisor. 'It's very helpful for us to have a picture. We don't release anything without an ID.'

Now patient photos are helping the fight against medical record fraud and improper use of insurance information."
