Health Care

Verified identity enables public health compliance at scale

Health care providers often interact with patients and providers at numerous locations each day. Merit’s verified identity makes it easier for facilities and care workers to stay compliant, while providing timely insights to administrators and policymakers to help them manage public health.

Moments of transformation

Facilities face a moving target due to frequent changes by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to COVID-19 testing requirements for their staff and patients.

Many health care workers interact with patients and providers at multiple facilities each day, which can complicate the verification of credentials.

Massive administrative challenges exist to implement COVID-19 testing for residents and staff across all state and agency facilities.

Organizations, verifiers, and individuals still have to contend with data silos, legacy systems, and other unique needs.

Paper certificates or badges are insufficient, unverifiable, and unavailable in real time.
