VerifyID Announces Partnership Agreement to Provide Breakthrough, Patient-Centric Technology for Treating Opioid Addiction
VerifyID’s groundbreaking technology will be applied as a tool to enhance the compliance, privacy and security of an opioid treatment program for self-funded health insurance clients
HOLLYWOOD, FL, January 1, 2019 – VerifyID, a South Florida-based biometric company dedicated to providing innovative identity-based security solutions, today announced that the company has entered into a partnership agreement with Care Provider Network, LLC, a Network Management Organization (NMO) assembling nationwide Preferred Provider Network comprised of Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder treatment service providers. Under the terms of the partnership, VerifyID will provide its state-of-the-art facial recognition technology to enroll and recognize members of a self-funded insurance pool seeking treatment at the facilities of Network Providers nationwide.
The unique program that is being deployed will be the first of its kind in the nation, providing an excellent opportunity to demonstrate the dual role of identity verification in preventing identity-related fraud and in helping to coordinate individuals’ recovery journey across the entire continuum of care – not just while in residential venues, but also once they have returned home and are receiving step-down or outpatient treatments.
By bringing these innovative tools to bear on this specific population, the program will support individuals who are among those most likely to be impacted by today’s opioid abuse epidemic, with the ultimate goal of restoring their health, well-being and productivity.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), on average, 115 Americans die each day from an opioid overdose. Moreover, it is estimated that the societal cost of the prescription opioid epidemic across the United States exceeds $80 billion and is growing.
